Newsletter May 2014

Hi all,

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

NEWS

We have a new member of the SomHydro team! Tony has worked previously in the industry for one of the UK’s largest nutrient producers ‘Growth Technology Ltd’ and has extensive product knowledge, combined with a tenacious sales background to gain the best deal possible for some of our products which in turn will be passed on to you of course!

We are currently building our new website to enhance our already very successful online presence! Our new site will have a complete revision of plant growth information, more efficient product ordering layout and a variety of applications to make your shopping visit as efficient and enjoyable as possible. We are hoping to have the new website online by the end of this coming summer, so check back often to find the new SomHydro. Aside from our new website, we are continuing to build our eBay store and increase our already amazing Somerset Hydroponics Amazon store presence. Check out our Amazon feedback to see why we are leading the pack! No other grow store on Amazon has as high a level of positive buyer feedback, and this high level of service is obviously at your fingertips via our own website!

In-store we have recently taken our  final successful crop of Cayenne chilli’s grown in our SomHydro Pro 18 plant NFT system from within our  Secret Jardin DR300W grow tent  and have removed the growing system to make way for an IWS Flood and Drain 12 pot growing system.  We have chosen the IWS (Intelligent Water Systems) Flood and Drain system  for our in-store live growing demo due to popular demand for this unique, professional and simple to use growing system. Customer feedback regarding this range of growing system has been amazing since day one. The stability and consistency of plant growth has always been impressive with this growing system, which in turn has resulted in a more than impressive yield ability! We shall of course update our Blog with information and photos as soon as possible.

NEW PRODUCTS

Newsletter 31/07/13

Welcome to our new newsletter format!

The UK Summer is here at last! (Kinda..!!) The main concern for most indoor gardeners will currently be temperature within the grow room. Due to the recent hot snap in the UK we have received hundreds of phone calls from desperate gardeners asking what can be done to lower temperature in their grow room, and for lowering the nutrient temperature within a nutrient/water tank. Below is a list of options to help maintain a better temperature for healthy plant growth until the outside temperature begins to drop and then in turn drops inside temperature.

*Note: The indoor gardener should always be realistic about what can be achieved when attempting to reduce temperature in a grow room in the summer months, especially when using multiple grow lights!

Things to consider:

All of the above will at least give you alternatives to consider to help maintain a better temperature within the grow room and grow tank(s) without having to consider completely shutting down your grow room for the summer months!

SomHydro News

We have recently developed a professional NFT Growing System which we are currently testing in our Secret Jardin DR300W Grow Tent. This growing system will suit novice and expert Hydroponic growers alike. We are all very excited about this system as we have personal experience with using the commercial grade Suregrow NFT channelling utilised in this system. The channelling has a proven track record for vigorous plant growth and high yield potential. Check our blog regularly for updates and the release date of this system!

New Dutch Pro Product Range

Dutch Pro are one of the pioneers of nutrient formulation in Europe, and is still the sole company & supplier from nutrients founded and based in Amsterdam 30 years ago. Dutch Pro have limited the products in the range so that the grower has everything he/she needs in the smallest amount of bottle’s as possible, and have formulated each product to have the highest concentration possible. This makes the Dutch Pro range of nutrients extremely cost effective and simple to use.

With this in mind, we have decided to stock some of their nutrients! These include but aren’t limited to Dutch Pro Explode which is a nutrient used for delivering precious nutrients to your plants and giving them a boost during the flowering stage. This solution contains micro-nutrients, vitamins, acids and it does exactly as the name suggests – explosively driving flowering growth and bigger yields in addition to increasing your plants resistance against diseases. This product is suited for every irrigation system we sell; as well as most of our soil, hydro and coco kits.

Dutch Pro Nutrients also includes the unique Auto Flowering Hydro Grow & Bloom, or Auto Flowering Soil Grow & Bloom range of plant nutrients. This nutrient range has been specifically formulated for Auto Flowering varieties of plant which have a much shorter life cycle than a general, standard flowering plant.

Our Current Main Display Grow Tent

Italian Chillies

Springtime in our Secret Jardin DR300 demo grow tent! Our demo tent contains two air-cooled lighting systems, full carbon filter ventilation, an NFT growing system and the Wilma Dripper growing system. Twilight chilli’s have begun to set fruit in the Wilma Dripper system under HPS lighting (Red spectrum= fruiting/flowering) and the Lavender Basil plants are bedded into the GT NFT system under Metal Halide lighting (Blue spectrum = vegative growth). Soon to be joined by Dorset Naga chilies. All our plants are grown using the Plant Magic Nutrients range.

Somerset Hydroponics Joins the Blogging World!

A little about us…

 store front 10x15  DSC00885  DSC00881

 Somerset Hydroponics was established in 1999 but the idea began much earlier when product choices were few and retailers were even fewer. At the time, we recognised a need for quality Hydroponics and organic gardening products, but more importantly, an honest approach to the information to back them up.

Since 1999 we have had a retail store which has been staffed by experienced gardeners. We pride ourselves on our proven record to provide quality pre’ and after sales service. Our high level of customer service is equaled by our speed of service when you place an order with us. We hope that you soon become part of our happy community of gardeners!

We have a combined forty years plus of growing experience which covers an ever growing range of techniques and plant knowledge. Over the years we have been proud to participate in educational Hydroponic projects and to work with a division of the Royal Horticultural Society. We have advised and instructed small holding farmers on the viability of setting up hydro/organic projects, but we are better known for our trusted personal service within the domestic hobby market.

Somerset Hydroponics was established by gardeners for gardeners and as such we are committed to your needs. We hope that you find our site and blog informative and competitive for all your online shopping needs.

We value our customer’s opinions, so please feel free to make suggestions or comments about our website or business in general by emailing us at sales@somhydro.co.uk

Happy Gardening and See You Soon … Lee @Somhydro
