Why Grow Fresh?

Nutritional Benefits:

Growing your own food has many health benefits:

•     You’ll eat more fresh fruits and vegetables. Having more fresh food available increases the likelihood of you eating it. [1]
•     You decide what kinds of fertilizers and pesticides come in contact with your food.
•     You control when to harvest. Vegetables that ripen in a garden have more nutrients than some store-bought vegetables picked early. [1]

Good for the Environment

0 Mile Diet

Your food should not have to travel any farther than from your home garden to your kitchen table. This hyperlocavore way of getting your fruits and vegetables proves to be more energy efficient, nutritionally-sound, and economically-viable for our planet.

Cooking with the Family

Many studies show creating a full, end-to-end culinary experience can help kids make healthier eating choice.  What better way to show freshness than growing and harvesting garden-fresh herbs and vegetables right in front of your children.

What is an “Optimized Full Spectrum Light”?

Light is measured in wavelengths. These wavelengths corresponds to the colours we see. During the process of photosynthesis, chlorophyll absorbs the wavelengths of light to produce energy. However, plants don’t just absorb all wavelengths of light, they actually prefer specific wavelengths for optimal growth. Our LEDs produces the optimal wavelengths the plant needs to produce energy, limiting waste and lowering energy consumption, while optimizing growth.

• Keep pots or planters in the provided drip tray to avoid water spillage.

• Plants grow best when the ambient room temperature is between 13°C – 32°C (55°F – 90°F)

• Keep the growing environment clean. Clean the drip try and the inside of the cabinet at least once a month to avoid the growth of mold and mildew.

• If powdery, white mildew forms on plants they can be sprayed with a solution of hydrogen peroxide and water. Use 1 teaspoon of 17% – 35% food-grade hydrogen peroxide to 1 liter of water and only spray the soil as this can cause rot if sprayed on leaves or flowers.

• Do not over-water plants, especially seedlings as they can drown. There is space between the particles of soil that is filled with oxygen. Soil that is constantly wet will not carry enough oxygen and the plants will not be able to breathe.

• As a general rule, soil should be damp but not wet. Check the seed packet for specific information on watering instructions.

• In general, for most herbs and vegetables, the following light cycles are recommended:
                 →     Growth Cycle: 18 hours on / 6 hours off for approximately 20 – 30 days.
                 →     Bloom Cycle: 12 hours on / 12 hours off for approximately 20 – 30 days.

• Most herbs and vegetables have a maturity date between 45 – 90 days. How long the plants take to mature will depend on the type of plants being grown. Check the seed packet for specific information on growth.

• Seeds must be germinated before they will grow and bloom. For best results in germination, consult the tips below:

→     Spread potting soil evenly in a pot or tray.
→     Spread seeds evenly over the surface of the soil.
→     Add enough water so that the soil is damp but not sodden. Using a spray bottle to add water is recommended to avoid over-watering seeds.
→     The use of a humidity dome or plastic bag over the seeds is recommended to trap heat and humidity around the seeds.
→     Place the pot or tray in a dark place. The bottom of the Danby Fresh Grower is ideal for this purpose.
→     Leave the humidity dome or plastic bag in place for 2 – 3 days or until sprouts are visible.
→     Remove the humidity dome or plastic bag and place the pot or tray on the wire shelf in the Danby Fresh Grower.
→     Set the desired light cycle based on the information on the seed packet using the timer instructions on page 5 of your Danby Fresh owners manual.
→     Water your plants as required based on the information on the seed packet.
→     Most micro-greens reach maturity within 1 – 2 weeks.

Note: Seedling chambers, humidity domes and germination bags are not included with the counter top appliance and must be purchased separately.
Note: Danby Products Ltd. will accept no liability for lost plants or weak harvests based on inappropriate use of the timer and light cycle system.
