    We have enjoyed giving this service free of charge however ongoing increasing financial costs of running this service is making it increasingly difficult. Up until now we have resisted advertising as a means of a revenue stream to help run this forum but it has become inevitable that extra revenue is required to run this forum.

    We have introduced a donate button to help offset the cost of running this forum. It is completely voluntary, but if you would like to donate, all donations would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Murray
    what would be the best option to grow Shallots or spring onions ?
    A grow bed or floating raft.
    I have had previous success in an nft system, hydroponic, but just starting aquaponics

    Cheers
    Mate

    Hi Mick,
    Spring onions do slightly better in a gravel bed whereas shallots go well in almost any situation. I grow chives mostly and they go well in net pots (and in gravel)
