Smart gardeners are incorporating an aquaponics system into the home gardens. It’s fun, the science is simple and you can get started for a very modest investment.
Here’s how it works:
Fish waste is a natural fertiliser rich in nutrients.
Growing plants take up the nutrients – filtering and cleaning the water for your fish.
By growing fish and plants in your aquaponics pond – you can enjoy a wonderful array of fast growing, leafy vegetables like spinach, water cress, lettuce or even some varieties of tomatoes.
Aquaponic systems can be small – 3 square metres will grow 25 fish and 30 – 50 plants. To get started, we recommend a Pondmax dirt water pump, it’s low maintenance, very energy efficient and has great flow. One you’re set up you’ll be enjoying fresh veggies in a few short weeks. Fish take a bit longer to get from pond to plate. Take a look at our video to see how it’s done.
