How much light do edible plants need (and how to create more if necessary)?

Hi Ruchira, any hydroponics shop will stock a range of artificial lights to grow food. I’d suggest starting simple, growing less needy plants – salads and herbs – and then you can begin to graduate. There’s some pretty basic LED set ups that aren’t expensive and really easy to use. Best of luck!

This was a very informative article. Where do I find artificial light equipment? I have a South facing garden with very limited space. In the past I have grown huge amounts in a confined space, but had a very sunny north facing courtyard!

Thank you for this article, it is a question I sent you a while ago and gives me the knowledge to continue with my quest to grow herbs and veggies in my court yard with little direct sunlight.
