San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/01/2011 -- In recent years, there has been a resurgence of interest in gardening.
With rising food costs, frightening stories about produce recalls and a general interest in growing food at home, more people than ever are looking into the benefits of having a garden. But not everyone has the space for a traditional garden, so many are looking for ways to grow them inside.
One way to enjoy indoor gardening is through a method called hydroponics. Rather than the traditional way of sowing seeds outside in the soil, with hydroponics plants typically grow in either a mineral rich solution or in a material like gravel, perlite or coconut husks. Most types of plants can be grown through this method.
A new website has already gotten a lot of attention for its huge selection of hydroponics products, discount prices and great customer service. Green Horizons Hydroponics has been in business for about four months, and is already establishing a name for itself as an outstanding company.
The website is easy to use and offers detailed information on each of the many items it stocks. On the left-hand side of the home page there are several categories of hydroponic-related items; clicking on each one will bring up all of the products the company sells in that group.
For example, select “Growing Mediums and Soil” and over 30 related products will come up, including Hydroton 8/16 mm in a 25 liter bag.
“Hydroton clay aggregate is a popular alternative planting medium for soil, perlite, peat and rockwool,” said the item description on the website.
“These reusable clay pebbles leave plenty of room for air transport and root development while retaining moisture. Hydroton is a chemically inert medium with a neutral pH.”
Other categories include Containers, Lighting & Accessories, Nutrients, and Pest Control.
Similar descriptions accompany each product, which can be especially helpful for customers who are new to hydroponics.
Items are also grouped by Popular Brands, including General Hydroponics, Raindrip and Sun Leaves. Customers are also welcome to sign up through the website for a newsletter, which features more information about hydroponics and indoor gardening.
