What to grow with your Airgarden

What to grow with your Airgarden

The Airgarden creates a controlled agricultural environment that makes growing easier and more effective than soil-based gardening, however some plants do thrive better than others depending on where you live, and the time of year.

There is a comprehensive, interactive guide on the Gardening Australia website, but we've broken down below what herbs, fruits and vegetables to plant and grow in your Airgarden.

    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 which you can buy at any aquarium shop.
    • 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.
