What to grow with your Airgarden

What to grow with your Airgarden

With the Airgarden, you can grow more than 150 different plants. The only real exceptions are root crops (such as carrots and potatoes), grapevines, bushes and trees.

View the full plant list here

As it creates a controlled growing environment, the Airgarden makes it possible to grow plants all year round wherever in Australia you are, provided you have 4+ hours of direct sunlight (you can even get away with 2+ hours if you're sticking to herbs and leafy greens). 

But whilst there will always be something you can grow, there are some plants that will thrive better in certain locations and seasons. We break this down below.

    Other growing tips

    • Keep the base reservoir of your Airgarden full of water - this will hold onto the heat from the day for longer
    • Use a Dolly or rubber mat underneath your Airgarden to allow airflow and reduce the rate at which the water cools at night
    • If you are in a climate where temperatures are consistently below 10 degrees, heat your water to 24 degrees with a submersible heater
    • Check your Airgarden is in the best position to capture the most amount of sunlight.
    • If you have less than 4 hours, grow things like leafy greens and herbs.
    • We recommend that at the change of every season you do a "seasonal clean" of your Airgarden - check out this video for instructions on how.
