This might not be the time of year that you’re thinking about growing fruits and vegetables in your yard, but then again, if you’re an avid gardener there are proactive measures to take to prepare for the next planting and growing season. A new gardener’s paradise has opened in the University District called Buffalo Roots Hydroponics and Organics, and owners Chris Maloney and Jonathan Keyser know a thing or two about how to grow the most organic foods on the planet. The 3500 square foot store opened up in July, bringing with it all sorts of gardening goodies such as indoor greenhouses, containers, depo-tents, grow lights, Co2 devices, hydro setups, substrates, airpots, truly organic seeds (coming soon), organic pest controls, soil nutrients and compost teas.
At Buffalo Roots it’s all about soil science. From gardening without chemicals to dry watering techniques, these guys want to help you grow the biggest, tastiest, freshest produce possible. “We opened this business because we felt that we could offer something that wasn’t already here in Buffalo,” Chris told me. “We concentrate on three things here at Buffalo Roots: Customer service (and selection and price), growing fast and big, and growing healthy. After all, you’re going to eat what you’re growing, right? So why would you want to eat something that has been grown using chemicals? Plus, the food tastes better and it takes five minutes to go from harvest to your plate. We are offering a propagation class coming up, and we’ll go to your house to help you with your indoor or outdoor garden setup. We are here to help people to grow healthy and eat healthy.”
