ideas for watering hanging baskets while on holiday



I'm not sure of the policy on advertising, but here goes nothing. QVC sell 30 watering "sticks" which you attach to empy plastic bottles filled with water and put in hanging baskets. They have an adjustable flow. Haven't used them myself and not sure of the price, but they seem effective. Hope this helps....:o)

Easiest, and cheapest, would be to ask a neighbour to water for you.

I think Moon Grower has the best option. Just looked them up and the reviews are not good at all, and they would set you back just under £17.

I tried the plastic bottles that Dylandog refers to but the drip holes get blocked up when pushed into the compost. Moon growers option is the best.
