hydroponics

For a grower like Thanet Earth, consistency of crop across the year is really important to the success of our business. We have to be productive and to get great yields, but the crops we grow have to deliver on flavour and taste. For us to deliver that consistent quality it doesn’t do to leave things to chance.

Our expert growers control every aspect of the greenhouse environment. Growing in soil is a thing of the past for Thanet Earth. We grow using hydroponics, without soil. The roots of our plants grow in a block of fibre. The plants are then watered with a dropper that includes natural nutrients to aid their growth. The control this system offers is much better than with soil. It uses less water, less nutrient and the fibre blocks are very light and recyclable so it’s much more environmentally-friendly too.
