Hydroponics is an ideal growing method for producing culinary and medicinal herbs. Not only do hydroponic herbs grow faster, they have significantly more flavor and aroma than herbs grown in soil. According to research performed at the University of Minnesota, it is a known fact that herbs grown hydroponically have 20-40% more aromatic oils than field grown. Therefore, a small hydroponic herb garden can provide a continuous harvest of gourmet-quality produce in a relatively small space. Many gourmet restaurants have already discovered the value of growing hydroponic herbs on site.
Some of the most popular culinary herbs for hydroponic production include: basil (sweet basil, lettuce leaf basil, globe basil, Thai lemon basil, cinnamon basil, Siam Queen Basil, and purple/opal basils), rosemary, mint, lemon verbena, French tarragon, Italian flat-leafed parsley, baby dill, sage, oregano, thyme and cilantro.
