Introducing our latest organic herbs range from The Cheeky Herb Co.!
Unlike the common hydroponics and aeroponics methods, The Cheeky Herb Co. grows their herbs organically through a lesser-known aquaponic method, for sustainability.
Aquaponics is a sustainable farming or gardening method in which you can grow fish and vegetables in just one system. Plants and fish grow together symbiotically, with the help of beneficial bacteria. Fish waste is converted into nitrates, which the plants use as fertiliser, the plants then filter and clean the water for the fish.
Why use aquaponics?
- Faster Growth: Plants tend to grow faster in an aquaponic system because of their access to 100% natural nutrients 24 hours a day
Organic: As the nutrients come from fish waste, it’s a truly organic solution without the use of antibiotics, chemicals, or fertilisers
- Low maintenance: Only fish food is required to be put into the system, which makes it low-maintenance and easy to handle
