There are times when you just can't be there for your plants. When you're on holiday, or if you're out at work all day, you'll need alternative arrangements so they don't go short of water - especially in a hot, dry spell.
Automatic watering systems take the stress out of looking after your plants, so you can leave them happy in the knowledge their needs will be met. We have all kinds of automatic system in our garden centre.
There are systems to suit every set-up and every budget. If you don't have mains water available, gravity fed kits feed water from your water butt through leaky hoses or drippers. Pod systems keep containers going nicely, with an individual dripper for each pot keeping up to ten containers watered without you lifting a finger – they work brilliantly in greenhouses, too.
For larger areas outside, lay a leaky hose around your plants and connect it to the tap via a battery powered timer. You can set the timer to water at certain times of day, and for a set length of time, leaving you free to sit back and enjoy your garden at its best.
Please ask the staff in our garden centre in Poynings for more information about which automatic watering system is right for you.
