What's on

Aquaponics

Nottingham Trent University and Pharm2Farm are displaying a range of aquaponic hydroponic and aeroponic systems for all gardeners. Dr Gareth Cave and Karen Davies have teamed up with Liverpool hydroponic company NPK to showcase the use of the systems from growing salads in a raft over a pond to ornamental displays that will look after themselves in the summer months. Development of user friendly systems allows even the smallest spaces inside and outside to become a green haven.

The team are also excited to premier the new unique iron formulation that is currently causing a stir in the commercial and home gardening world. The formulation has been a result of a PhD project with Nottingham Trent University, supported by AHDB Potatoes and Biotechnology and Biological Science Research Council (BBSRC).

Please come and talk to the team in the Amateur Marquee about the increases in yields, growth and nutrition content of fruit and vegetables this new formulation produces.
