Herbs on raft system?

by Quentin

Hello Stella & Simon,

I have started a simple raft system 6 months ago. I started with lettuce, and it works fine!
I would like to try herbs now, but don't know if they will appreciate having their roots constantly in water (ok maybe for basil or mint, but what about thym,rosemary etc.?).

Thanks for your help!

Yes to herbs!

Hi there Quentin,

Lettuce rafts work great for herbs, if they are low-growing. Basil, chives, oregano, thyme, etc. I would try just about any herbs (but not tall-growing medical herbs, they would flop over). Try them all, experiment. That's what hydro is all about!

Hope this help!
