Hydro Tip of the Month-  Not sure which of the hundreds of nutrient solutions available to use? K.I.S.S.: Use the same nutrient solution that NASA does, the best: General Hydroponics (GH) Flora Series Nutrients. And forget the mixing charts on the bottles. We've figured it all out for you here:  The Reservoir. We also provide some links for ordering this superior nutrient system on that page.

We hope you have enjoyed this issue of The Urban Farmer Ezine. Each month, we will bring you another inspiring photo, gardening quote or idea, plus fresh new hydroponics news, techniques & products.

Insiders tips to get you growing...
