Hydroponic Performers
With the unique conditions of growing in hydroponic systems come equally distinct challenges and opportunities. That is why it’s important to select seed varieties demonstrated to perform in the hydroponic setting. Johnny’s has reviewed the available research, including results from independent grower trials, information received from our suppliers, and our own knowledge base, to compile our list of vegetables and herbs for hydroponic production. Because hydroponic systems vary, we suggest you use these recommendations as a starting point for building and refining your variety selection.
