For five years now, the KUCI/Master Gardener radio program called In the Garden with UC Master Gardeners has brought you tips and topics for all types of gardening in the Orange County environment.
Most have assumed that the gardens were backyard, front yard, pots on patio, orchard, raised bed, what have you. Any place with lots of beautiful SOIL.
Well, this week on our show, MG Sally Richards talks to fellow Master Gardener Jeremy Samson about how to grow certain plants using NO SOIL. With a little help from FISH! The topic this week is Hydroponics and Aquaponics! There are lots of benefits for the practice of soilless gardening.
Great for small spaces/no yards so one can grow much more than in a comparably sized garden plot because of the nature of hydroponic techniques. No weeds and much fewer pest problems. Learn all about the two concepts, the 6 different types of systems, and all that you need to set up and run a hydroponic/aquaponic system.
