Grofresh Kitchen Garden - Setting the seeds


Ever since we took part in a sustainable living program we've been very conscious of waste. We've also wanted to grow our own veg, fruit and herbs but having very clay soil brought that hope to a swift end.

We've just managed to grow some rosemary in a pot but there's been little more success. So, when I was offered the chance to try the Grofresh Kitchen Garden I jumped at the chance!

Giving the opportunity to grow herbs, fruit and salad greens, the hydroponic Grofresh Kitchen Garden can give you the chance to grow your own all year round.

The Grofresh arrived with all the equipment you need to get started.

All you need is to add water and seeds.

The step by step instructions are easy to follow and we were soon able to set up the unit.

Adding water and nutrients to the bowl, soaking the sponges and adding the seeds was easily done.

Leaving the Grofresh plugged in puts it on to a cycle with the light coming on every 16 hours and then going off for 8.

At the moment we are growing basil and with a couple of days we saw signs of growth. Our little boy has found it quite interesting and it's given the chance to talk about growing food. He may only be 4 but he's finding it quite exciting!

We'll update you again soon when the crops are ready!
