Welcome to the wooden pallet gardening craze. Urban gardeners are leaning them against outside walls, hanging them inside apartments, all while growing vegetables, herbs and flowers in places no typical garden would grow. It's gardening meets artistic expression.
Pallets are great space-savers because they let you grow vertically! They even help keep what's growing away from ground weeds and animals.
Let your creative side come to life. Lean your pallet against a wall or fence to add height and visual interest to your yard. A standing pallet garden is also easy to maintain; no more bending over to water or weed!
Every pallet is a DIY project waiting to grow.

Hydroponics growing system: How to build a DIY Aeroponics growing system using a 5 Gallon Bucket. There are many forms of hydroponics growing systems out there. This video will show you step by step how to build an aeroponics growing system.
Aeroponics is a system where the roots are suspended in an environment saturated with fine drops, mist or fog of a nutrient solution. The method entails periodically wetting the roots of the growing plants with a fine mist of nutrients. The growing plants with their roots suspended in a deep air or growth chamber receive excellent aeration and a moist environment. This is the main advantage of aeroponics.
Another distinct advantage of aeroponics over other hydroponics growing systems is that any species of plant can be grown. In an aeroponic system the micro environment can be finely controlled. This addresses many of the limitations of other hydroponics growing systems. In other hydroponics growing systems certain species of plants can survive before they become waterlogged. This means that you can grow plants longer and faster, because aeroponics is that suspended aeroponic plants receive 100% of the available oxygen and carbon dioxide to the roots zone. This will accelerate biomass growth and reduce rooting times. Aeroponic techniques have been proven to be commercially viable for propagation, seed germination, seed potato production, tomato production, leaf crops, and micro-greens. The success of aeroponics has even recognized by NASA.
NASA researchers have been analyzing many soilless growing methods for the space program, including hydroponics. Aeroponics growing systems receive special attention from NASA since a mist is easier to handle than a liquid in a zero gravity environment. Their research into aeroponics has all shown that aeroponically grown plants have an 80% increase in dry weight biomass compared to hydroponically grown plants. They also concluded that aeroponics use less water than other hydroponics growing systems. Aeroponics is also widely used in laboratory studies of plant physiology and plant pathology.
What is hydroponics?
Hydroponics is a soilless growing technique were growing of plants are placed into a system that delivers nutrient rich water directly to the roots. Instead of soil, Plants are often supported by an inert substrate such as rockwool, hydroton, coconut coir, and many others. A flood and drain, mist, or air stone provides oxygen to the root system to keep the plants from drowning. A hydroponics growing systems success is based on the fine control of the environment. This makes a hydroponics growing system perfect for growing indoors as well as outdoors.
I'm a gardener. Why should I care about hydroponics?
Like most you, I enjoy traditional gardening outside in the soil and sun. Then with the fall all of the outdoor fun ends and the long cold wait to spring begins. With the use of a hydroponics growing system you can grow year round. This has become very important to modern farmers and gardeners. Using hydroponics we have complete control over our seasons and plants. Out in the fields many factors affect how plants are grown. Perfect quality soil is difficult to find and even harder to maintain. We have to deal with contamination, weeds, pests and biological imbalances. For a plant to receive a well balanced diet, everything in the soil must be in perfect But with hydroponics, water is enriched with a perfectly balanced nutrient. The hydroponic nutrient solution is also contained so little is lost to evaporation, therefore, less water is needed and wasted.
Each day, more facts are learned about hydroponics, and it is easyer then ever to start your year round vegetable garden with a little help from my blog http://www.getforked.ca .

I've been working on an experiment comparing water soluble fertilizers for hydroponic growing. Here is how it began: http://youtu.be/oeLd2SP0c6U The final results are in. When it comes to hydroponics, Miracle Grow is not recommended because it has a form of nitrogen that is best suited for use in the soil. It does poorly in a hydro application. The 4-18-38 hydroponic fertilizer that I have been using for awhile now absolutely kicks butt. My recommendation for anyone wanting to grow hydroponic vegetables is this: find a true hydroponic fertilizer to use, and leave the Miracle Grow products for the soil. The results speak for themselves.

With the to start with light-weight process, the close crops were increasing towards the lights in the middle. I additional yet another workbox, light-weight fixture and 100w CFL Daylight bulb and I changed the flat flashing reflector to a seven”x60″ spherical furnace duct. The new reflector would seem to give far better uniform light-weight coverage of the hydroponic process.

The reservoir and tubing genuinely should be opaque to reduce algae growth.
Suggested medium (what the plant is grown in) is at the moment according to several on the net web pages a combination of ceramic pellets and coconut coir.
If you have a pet dog and it has not taken detect of the method do not put it in front of him. He will remember it exists and in some cases will “examine” your windowsill farms perhaps to disastrous benefits.
