For any gardener one of the key parts of the gardening day is watering your plants. Once the planting, the pruning, the dividing and the potting on is finished; there's one task left to complete. As most gardeners are aware, especially during the Summer, general watering should be done at the end of the day once the sun has lost its heat. This stops any water on the plants and soil evaporating straight off the surface and gives the ground a chance to soak up some moisture. The only downside to this, of course, is the inevitability of having to water the garden at ridiculous o'clock in the evening!
Fortunately there are solutions to combat this slight inconvenience. Most online retailers such as Swell Uk offer gardening water systems which you can custom make to your own garden and design. There are a range of products out there to suit most gardens and also to suit your individual needs.
Greenhouse Watering Kits
These are as you can imagine ideal for your greenhouse. They are typically small pods that you can disperse around your greenhouse. The idea here is that you can place the end of each hose within a pot or section of the ground and you can water ten items at the same time. With the hoses being attached below the ground, as opposed to sprinkler systems, there is fear of uprooting fragile new seedlings with a stream of heavy droplets.
Auto watering kits
This is for the perfect automated system. Simply attach the ends of the hoses to the containers and tubs on your patio, or directly into the ground. The hoses are usually attached to a series of pods which you can intermingle with your pots and plants to hide. These are a great little nifty way of watering large sections of your garden just by turning on the tap!
These are used to control the frequency and length of watering you require. The computers come in a variety of styles and formats but typically all you have to do is attach the computer to the tap and hose and set the length of watering required. The computers also allow you to set watering for when you go on holiday; so you don't have to rely on relatives and neighbours - perfect piece of mind whilst on the beach!
Of course the old-fashioned way works just as well. It is particularly good if you have just planted or potted on something and they need a thorough soaking but the rest of your plants do not. Also a watering can is much better for seeds and new seedlings; the rose will stop the water jet from uprooting fragile plants or knocking newly planted seeds out the ground. As a gardener you should never be without your trusty watering can and decent rose!!
