    After reading your article I am considering getting a hydroponic system for our home. There are so many advantages of which I was not aware. Since we are in the process of moving to a new location, this would be a fantastic addition to our new abode. Thanks so much for sharing this valuable information.

    • Yvonne says:

      Hi Joseph, Moving to a new location can be exciting as well as tiring. I’m glad you are considering getting a hydroponic system for your home. It would make an ideal house warming present. All the best.

    Hi Yvonne,
    This is a wonderful article. I have moved to a smaller block of land so have very little vegetable garden space outside. So I went looking for a good step by step guide to hydroponics.
    Can I ask a basic question because I am new to hydroponics? Can I set one of these up outside so I don’t need the lighting component? Or do these all work best with the artificial lighting units?

    I get plenty of sunshine where I live so am tossing up between a hydroponic solution or a vertical vegetable garden.

    • Yvonne says:

      Hi John the idea of AeroGardens is indoors. Mainly because of the extreme cold weather in some areas. During winter I grew herbs and they all grew really well except for two. Mint and thyme. One failed to sprout and the other died during growth. The unit is great for seed starter and with anything else you will need to gradually transfer to pots and garden them off.
