Winter Yields...How We Do It!

It's tempting to spend January waiting out the cold. But you don’t have to - you can squeeze an extra crop out of your year by growing through winter. The guys in our shops are doing just that!

 

Here’s what they’re growing.

Birmingham
 

There's loads on the go in Birmingham. The guys there are currently carrying out a side by side test – the Ebb & Flood System vs RhizoPots.

Wembley
 

Now on display is an amazing Mammoth tent jam packed with exotic plants under Gavita lights.
 

One of these plants is the Jabuticaba – a Brazillian grape tree - possibly THE ONLY one in the UK. Grapes actually grow on the trunk of the tree. You won’t have seen anything else quite like it.

 

It normally takes 6 or 7 years for one of these to flower – the guys in Wembley managed to do it in a year. All they used was the indoor growing equipment we sell. No wonder it’s their pride and joy!

 

Make sure you stop by and see it. It’s really not to be missed.
