Veg king Med­wyn to go soil-less?

Bangor Mail - - News -

AN­GLE­SEY veg­etable supremo Med­wyn Wil­liams has re­vealed he may ditch soil al­to­gether as he seeks to ex­tend his golden run at next month’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

The vet­eran grower al­ready uses Canna’s Au­toPot sys­tem, which uses grav­i­tyfed wa­ter to ir­ri­gate plant con­tain­ers through a sys­tem of tubes and pipes.

Over the next few years he plans to switch to hy­dro­ponic cul­ti­va­tion us­ing just wa­ter as his grow­ing medium – thus show­ing that healthy food can be grown any­where.

Hav­ing al­ready won 11 Golds in Chelsea’s Grand Pavil­ion, Med­wyn will be joined by his son Al­wyn and grand­son Owain on his re­turn to the show.
