While I was googliing for some information about setting up a hydroponic ched I came across the Shed topics and someone was asking about a hydroponic nutrient mix. I've followed a few of the hydroponic links on the Shed site but they seem to go off track or end up with something other than hydroponics. In the mid nineties I spent a few years running a hydroponic tomato farm and would be happy to provide the details to those who would like to have a go at their own nutrient mixes.
In the meatime, I was thinking about setting up a small shed in my backyard. It's not easy to find some of the gear that I used to use so I guess it will be a bit of a learning curve to start a small scale garden in the backyard. Things such as the plastic film that we used for the shed roofs. I'll takea trip to a hydroponic shop on the weekend.
Other things that I have done in the past include jewellery (I still have my bench set up), computer training (that's a non-stop learning curve) and soft furnishings - not every body's cup of tea but it kept me out of trouble for around 18 years.
Anyway, if anyone has any ideas or plans about building a hydroponic shed from scratch I would be keen to see them. It's only going to be about 3.5 X 2.5 metres. The plans are to grow tomatoes, lettuce, carrots and and some other green vegies.
Thanks for any help that anyone can provide.
