Natural Awakenings Greater Boston - Rhode Island

Rootdown Hydroponics Serves Indoor Gardeners


Rootdown Hydroponics Indoor Garden Center, which specializes in hydroponics systems, indoor plant lighting, soils, fertilizers and organic gardening supplies, has opened in Medford. Hydroponic gardening uses a nutrient solution instead of soil to maximize yields, minimize pests and conserve water and nutrients. “There are many ways to grow hydroponically and many systems require very little space,” says Rootdown Hydroponics Owner Sabrina Cushing. “We also specialize in organic growing methods and have a full line of organic, non-GMO and heirloom seeds to help gardeners get off to the right start.”

Cushing says that, while many people wait for spring to start their gardens, several varieties of vegetables, herbs and flowers should be started now to ensure maturity and a good harvest later. “Most plants can be grown to full maturity inside using the correct lighting,” she says. The staff members at Rootdown Hydroponics Indoor Garden Center will advise customers on the best methods for building indoor gardens of any size. “I managed two indoor garden centers in Colorado for five years before coming back to Boston,” says Cushing. “I love talking about gardening projects of all kinds.”

Rootdown Hydroponics Indoor Garden Center is located at 236 Mystic Ave., Medford. For more information, call 781-874-1693 or visit
