Newsletter September 2014

Hi all,

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

 NEWS

Firstly; Our apologies for our quarterly newsletter being a month late! This is due to a huge amount of admin work from Somerset Hydroponics recently becoming Somerset Hydroponics Limited! Although on the face of things becoming a Ltd company will not change anything regarding our highly efficient service and competitive sales efforts, it will mean in the future that we can offer a greater number of products, brands and deals. So on the whole becoming a limited company will benefit everyone concerned..happy days!

Further to our previous newsletter regarding the build of our new website; We are now only a matter of weeks away from release, so please check back often to see the new and improved www.somhydro.co.uk !!

In-store we have been busy bringing on our Cayenne Chilli plants with our IWS 12 pot Flood & Drain growing system within our Secret Jardin DR300w grow tent (see previous June 25th blog) The plants have grown so well and fast that we cannot recommend the benefits of the IWS range of Flood & Drain systems enough! We are still currently using two Maxibright 400watt Pro-Variable DigiLight Air-Cooled Supernova grow lights with metal Halide lamps, but will soon be switching these out for two Sunmaster Hobby 600w Variable Digital Air-Cooled Goldstar Digital grow light’s with HPS lamps.  As soon as the seedlings had established themselves on Formulex full spectrum nutrient, we began to feed with the Plant Magic Plus range of nutrients. I think you can clearly see from the images below that the Cayennes are extremely happy!

Our other in-store demo grow tent has had a major upgrade in lighting! We have now installed a Gavita 300 LEP plasma grow light into our Secret Jardin DS120 grow tent . Our little Mint seedlings are growing under one of the highest specification grow lights in the world and are responding amazingly. We will update as time rolls on!

Newsletter Jan/Feb 2014

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!)

NEWS

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!

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!
