SunGarden Greenhouse is a hydroponic greenhouse in which plants are grown without soil or very little depending on the crop. Tomatoes are grown in clay pebbles, giving us more control over the plants and significantly reducing the risks of soil borne diseases. The greenhouse uses sustainable, ethical practices to grow high quality, flavorful produce without environmental pollutants, pesticides or chemical runoff.
