Over the last three months we have been very busy! Our growing demo Wilma10 Hydroponic Grow Kit with DS120 Grow Tent has been very successful with our out-of-season indoor Capsicum Pepper crop (see photos below) It never ceases to amaze us how productive the Wilma Dripper system can be, and with only a 250-400watt Maxibright Digilight lighting system to provide all the required light and heat through the cold months, we really were surprised with the abundance of peppers we received with minimum effort!

Hi all,

Welcome to the first Somerset Hydroponics newsletter of 2014! (skip to the bottom of this blog for Discount code info if you are in a rush!)


We have started a new crop of Cayenne Chilli Peppers in our purpose built ‘ SomHydro Pro 18 plant NFT system (see photos below) within the Secret Jardin DR300W grow tent and so far everything is looking great. Taking into account that temperatures are still far from an acceptable level for optimum growth, we can only hope that our efforts are as rewarding as with the little  Capsicum crop!

Look closely and you will see an abundance of green peppers!

We have yet again had a little move around in-store to be able to place a permanent IWS Flood & Drain System and an IWS Deep Water Culture System on display due to popular demand for these amazing growing systems. We will soon introduce an IWS flood and Drain system into our DR300W demo growing tent to be able to show you exactly how to set-up, use, and achieve maximum results from this increasingly popular novice-pro growing system!
