Starting to think about my wishlist for planting up our proposed aquaponics system, so here goes. From the list of tried-and-tested plants for aquaponics systems over at Backyard Aquaponics, compared with stuff we actually like to eat I’ve got this list:

  • Lettuce / Rocket / other varieties (inc. over-winter varieties) 
  • Peas / Snow peas 
  • Spinach
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumber
  • Basil
  • Chard
  • Flat Leaf Parsley
  • Chives
  • Some mild chillis
  • Peppers
  • Bok Choy / Pak Choi etc
  • Broccoli (inc. over-winter varieties) 
  • Coriander – slow bolt 
  • Melons 
  • Strawberries

I’ll keep updating this with different varieties as we start to make some real decisions about what we have space for.
