WELCOME to the NEW AGE URBAN GARDEN!
Vertical Hydroponic GrowTube™ Technology – a new idea for growing vegetables, herbs and flowers around your home.
Vertical Hydroponic GrowTube™ Systems make it possible to grow high density veggies and herbs in a limited space. For the home grower, this allows areas that were once too small to crop to become feasible garden spots. The grower is also able maximize production for a given area while minimizing water, electricity and other inputs. For the commercial grower, Vertical Hydroponic GrowTube™ Systems maximize production per given area and decrease labor and other input costs. Whether used for hobby gardens, small herb and veggie patches or larger scale farms, Vertical Hydroponic GrowTubeTM Systems are one of the most efficient available.
