  • Growing fruit all year round?

    Hi all.

    Trying to be a bit healthy this year by eating more fruit.
    The main problem with this is that it is expensive when not in season and most of the time does not taste like the home grown stuff.

    I have done Strawberries for the past 10 years every summer but I would like to look at doing it all year round with one of those systems that allow you to keep things growing 24/7 using LEDs at the specific wavelengths.
    Would also like to look into doing it without soil to keep things clean and less bad **** can grow causing less crop.

    Is it possible to do this?

    I have had a look on the Google about this sort of thing but there is so much info out there that it gets hard to read.
    So anyone have a good single place to go that has decent well written 'this is how you do it step by step' type information?

    I'd love to be able to use the spare room in my shed to do this. Powering the LEDs using solar.
    Moving to a new house where space is short so we wont have the greenhouse, this would be a long term thing I want to do.

    Thanks
    Jack,

    I imagine if you used your spare room for "growing" you would have a knock on the door from mr plod before long from the heat scans ))

          Seriously?

          On the very off chance that this thread is actually for real, sugary fruits such as strawberries aint exactly the best for you anyway.

            They won't knock

            That is unless you count smashing windows at the front and back of your house, and smashing the door in as "knocking"

                    you can grow a few things in pots on your south facing windows. you do not need to get a full on growhouse set up going

                    but nice "fruits" need strong lights and high ambient temps.
