Hydroponics

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

Our expert growers control every aspect of the glasshouse 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 called Rockwool. The plants are then watered with a dropper that includes nutrients to aid their growth. The control this system offers is much better than with soil. It uses less water, less nutrients and the fibre blocks are very light and are recycled locally so it’s much more environmentally-friendly too.
