Herbs of many varieties can be grown easily with fantastic results.  Most strains of leafing and budding herbs adapt well to the nutrition, light, and growing conditions supplied by the Omega Gardens.  Specifically, the following types have proven results with huge yields per growing cycle:

  • Basil and Savory
  • Mint and Italian Parsley
  • Feverfew and Oregeno
  • Majoram and Thyme

Lettuce is another category of food that has proven excellent growing traits with the Omega Gardens. Leafy lettuce varieties tend to work best and show large quantities. Head lettuce may still produce positive results but may be leafier than conventional gardening due to the rotation of the gardens.  Here are just a few lettuce types that have great results:

  • Romaine lettuce and Green leaf lettuces
  • Rocket lettuce and Red leaf lettuce
  • Pak Choy lettuce and Red Butterhead
  • Swiss Chard and Loose Leaf

Fruit bearing plants of small to mid size also have demonstrated good growing yields in the Omega Gardens.  Due to the rotation of the cylinders, larger fruits or heavier objects may need to be staked or suspended but a little tender care will go along way.

  • Peppers
  • Strawberries
  • Eggplants
  • Tomatoes

Flowers grow easily and beautifully in the wonderful glow of the rotating cylinders.  A large selection of perennial and annual species result in color blooms that last for months.

  • Marigolds
  • Impatients
  • Nasturtium
  • Pansies

What else can you grow?

  • Wheat?
  • Barley?
  • Rice?
  • Grapes?
