Grolys for plant growth

Grow lights are essential for the growth and well-being of plants, especially when grown indoors or in areas with limited natural light. It's important to understand what types of grow lights are available and how to use them to optimise lighting.

Microgreens - the healthy plants

Microgreens are small, tender plants that are grown by allowing them to germinate and grow for a few weeks before harvesting. They are high in nutrients and antioxidants and are therefore considered to be very healthy. A wide range of flavours and colours are available, including broccoli, red cabbage, sunflowers and basil. Microgreens can be used as a decorative detail on the plate and can be used to add an extra flavour to any dish. Additionally, microgreens are easy to grow and require minimal space

Grow your own sprouts

Growing your own sprouts is an easy and fun way to get fresh and healthy veg on the table all year round. Sprouts can be grown in small sprout jars or sprout trays at home and require minimal space and time. There are many different types of sprouts to choose from and they are known to be packed with nutrients and antioxidants. It's a great way to ensure fresh produce and get more greens into your diet.

Pre-germination trays

Get an early start on pre-germination

Pre-germinating plants indoors is a popular method among gardening enthusiasts and can offer many benefits. Grolys are essential for plants to develop optimally as they receive the necessary amount of light. Seed trays are a convenient way to sow seeds and provide a good overview of which seeds have been sown. Heating mats ensures that the soil stays warm and moist so that seeds can germinate quickly and healthily.

Coconut fibre is a sustainable and environmentally friendly substitute for regular seed soil, ensuring good water drainage and aeration for the roots. Seed soil contains essential nutrients that are necessary for optimal plant growth. A mini greenhouse can also be beneficial as it creates a warm and humid atmosphere that provides the optimal conditions for germination and growth.

The benefits of sowing plants indoors include the ability to extend the growing season, allowing for an earlier harvest. It also gives you more control over growing and you can get more plants from the same amount of seeds. Pre-germination indoors is also a great way to ensure healthier and stronger plants as you can control conditions and avoid pests and diseases.

Overwintering citrus and chilli

Winterising plants

Overwintering citrus trees, chilli, olive trees and other exotic plants can be a challenge in the Danish climate. One way to overwinter them is to move them indoors, where the temperature is more stable and there is less risk of frost damage.

It's important to place the plants in a location with a good supply of light and air, and avoid placing them close to radiators or other heat sources. Plants should also be given the right amount of water and fertiliser, even if they don't grow as fast as in summer.

Citrus and olive trees can also be pruned in autumn before moving indoors. This can help reduce their size and make them fit better in the space, while also stimulating new growth.

It's also a good idea to keep an eye out for pests and diseases, as indoor plants are often more susceptible to these than outdoor plants. You may want to treat plants with insecticides or fungicides if necessary.

Overall, overwintering exotic plants is a challenge, but with the right care and attention, you can extend the life and growth of these beautiful and unique plants.

Growing guides for plants

Growing plants requires some basic elements. First and foremost, light is essential as plants need light to perform photosynthesis. If there is not enough natural light available, it may be necessary to supplement with grow lights. In addition, there must be sufficient water and it's important to choose the right type of soil for the plants in question. It's also a good idea to fertilise plants regularly, as they don't get the nutrients from the soil like outdoor plants. Ventilation is also important to avoid mould and fungus. When it comes to light requirements, it depends on the specific plant. Some plants need more light than others, while others can thrive with less light. In general, however, it's a good idea to place plants near a window with good light or to supplement with grow lights to ensure they get the necessary amount of light.

Fertilisers and fertilisers

To pre-germinate and grow plants, different growing media and fertilisers are required. For seeds that need to germinate indoors, coconut fibre or seed soil can be suitable germination media. Heating mats and grow lights can also be used to provide the necessary conditions for germination. Once the plants have germinated, they can be transplanted into larger pots with suitable potting soil that is rich in nutrients and has good drainage.

Fertiliser is also essential for healthy plant growth. Organic fertilisers, such as compost or worm castings, can be added to the soil to provide nutrients and improve soil structure. There are also different types of fertilisers that can be used to supplement plants. It's important to choose an appropriate type depending on the plant's needs and growth phase.

In general, it's important to monitor the plant's growth and adjust the amount of fertiliser and water as needed. An adequate amount of light and heat is also important to ensure plants thrive indoors.
