Cool weather crops for your hydroponic garden

The Winter hydroponic garden is often thought of as an unproductive place to be but this simply isn’t true. Although in cool areas, the weather can pose a few different challenges, there are plenty of crops that can still be grown. The leaf crops provide the mainstay of the winter vegetable garden and can be grown successfully as long as they have enough sunshine and are protected from theextremes of weather. A greenhouse offers a place where you can extend the season, control the climate, the light, the temperature, the ventilation.


Crops to consider:

  • Beans
  • Beetroot
  • Cabbage
  • Silverbeet
  • Lettuce
  • Cauliflower
  • Radish
  • Mustard greens
  • Trays 009bHydroponic system5380616_orig2245870_orig

Vegetables that grow beneath the soil, such as onions, leeks, carrots, parsnips, potatoes and radishes will also grow hydroponically, but may require extra care.  They can be grown in a hydroponic garden, but they are not space efficient, and just not practical.This however doesn’t mean you can’t grow them just for the fun of it although they can take quite awhile to grow to maturity.
