Airgarden Summer Growing Guide

Summer is here, which means we're prepping our Airgardens for fresh summer veggies, abundant salad greens, and of course - the hot, hot sun! Here's everything you need to know and do.

Get ready for the heat

At the change of every season, make sure you change your timer to suit the change in temperature as per the below table, or check out this video.

When the temperature exceeds 30 degrees, you should also put your Airgarden in shade during the hottest part of the day to protect your plants.

Give your Airgarden a clean

Give your Airgarden a quick seasonal reset! Even a brief cleaning will keep your Airgarden running smoothy – and make way for new seasonal seedlings. Check out this video.

What to do if you're going away

If you’re heading away on a holiday, firstly - good for you! Secondly, here’s what to do with your Airgarden while you are away.

Defending against leaf diseases

The summer humidity can bring airborne funguses like downy and powdery mildew, which present like the below examples:

If any of your leaves are looking like this, the best solution is Eco Fungicide from Bunnings.

Just spray the plant and then remove any of the already affected leaves. It's also 100% natural and safe to use on edibles with no withholding period. We'd recommend you get some and have it on hand!
