Imagine being able to grow a meal in your own backyard; well you can and it's a lot easier than you might think!

Backyard Aquaponics have developed a simple method that allows you to farm fish and grow produce in one compact system.

The water from the fish tank is used to irrigate the garden beds, providing all the essential nutrients your plants need it's then returned - naturally cleaned and filtered - to the fish tank.  It's the most water efficient garden system on the planet, there's no fertilizers needed, you just feed the fish.

You can grow just about any type of plant in an Aquaponic garden including vegetables or ornamental plants and you can choose to grow ornamental fish like Koi, or varieties that you can harvest like Trout Barramundi or Perch.

Backyard Aquaponics can supply a system in a size to suit your needs and they can install it for you or you can do it yourself.  They also run regular workshops with all the tips and tricks you'll need for successful aquaponics and some other great ideas for organic gardening.

In fact, you don't need to be an aquaponic gardener to visit Backyard Aquaponics.  They also carry a great range of gardening products including plants, heritage seeds and some really innovative planting ideas.
