Standard field farming has many advantages but sometimes due to drought and floods, the crop is ruined. The hydroponic herb garden could become an alternative option for the availability of fresh herbs and vegetables. Some benefits of these gardens are mentioned below:
Help in saving water : Water conservation is very essential and in hydroponic gardening, you can easily do this. You will need less water in this kind of gardening as compared to the standard field farming. The water gets circulated in this system as the required water is absorbed by the herbs and the rest is sent back to the system.
Saves time and labor : Hydroponic herb gardening would need less time and less labor. While some people are of the opinion that this is more time consuming but this is far away from reality. You will also have to spend minimum time on activities like watering, cultivating, or purifying the herbs from pests and weeds.
Environmental control : These hydroponic gardens give environmental control. You would not have to depend on a specific season for the herbs. You can go ahead with this system and grow the herbs throughout the year.
pH control is very useful : As this whole system is based on water, then you can easily manage the pH level of the soil. Water contains maximum minerals. So, the herbs could also soak in all the essential minerals and nutrients which would be healthy for you.
