The growers guide
This month I want to showcase The Growers Guide series of books. Currently 3 strong, the next book, Passive watering systems comes out later this year. The series is a ‘back to basics’ on everything to do growing indoors and runs from germinating seeds as well as cuttings, all the way through to harvest and storage.
> Book 1 – is on Coco Coir and soil, hand feeding, run to waste – View book
> Book 2 – is focused of growing in Bubblers and DWC ( Deep water Culture). – View book
> Book 3 – is all about growing in Organics. – View book
> Book 4 – (coming soon) is a complete guide on how to grow using a passive watering system.
Each book is packed full of images, “how to’s” and easy to follow text for everybody to learn from. It’s a great read whether it’s cover to cover or as a reference guide to dip into whenever you need a little clarification on certain aspects of your grow.
The Growers Guide is devoted to what the novice grower is asking for, a concise, easy to follow guide that will get you started in the world of indoor growing. This book will show you how to grow in a 1.2 x 1.2 x 2m (4ft x 4ft x 5ft 6”) growing tent/room. The book take you right through from the earliest point of the grow process, the germinating of a seed, to the very finish which is the harvest and curing of your fruits. Whilst this may currently seem extremely daunting, I guarantee that by the time you have read the whole of this book that you will feel fully informed and be able to confidently complete an entire growing cycle.
It is the only book on the market to date that brings together all the information that you need in such a way that it leaves you fully informed and up to date on what you need and should be looking out for when you first go into a hydroponics store, as the sheer range of products can be totally overwhelming if you haven’t grown before.
Each chapter covers a different step of the growing process in full and is written in order to be concise and easy to understand. You will find each chapter packed full of colour pictures, diagrams and easy step-by-step instructions, complete with a full “shopping list” of items needed for each stage of your Grow.
Chapter by chapter you will be walked through the entire process, telling you exactly what to look out for and when to expect it. It tells you what you need, what each item does and why it does it. You are walked through all available options, giving an experienced opinion along with the pro’s and con’s. It shows you how each element is best implemented into your working Grow environment, including how to get the most out of it, enabling you to produce the best end result possible.
Think of The Growers Guide as a cookbook, I have taken inspiration from my many years of experience and all the different ideas that you will find out there on the hydroponics market. Every stage of this book has been streamlined in order to produce this comprehensive guide.
With a RRP of £14.99 for each book, it provides a great, cost effective way of sharing growing technics with everyone.
