Solar power in sunless garden?
Although my garden faces east, there’s a green beyond with tall trees, and flats beyond that, so I get very little direct sunlight. I only get direct sun between 11-1, when the sun moves to the south to shine along the block.
I’ve got a solar-powered four-bowl water feature which only works for a couple of hours. Obviously I’d like it to work more, but don’t know how.
Is there a safe way to get power to it other than by direct sunlight? It has a socket for mains power – but the manual says *when used indoors*. (The mains lead wasn’t included.)
I’ve not experimented because I’m a tad paranoid about water and electricity coming together – unless you’re very lucky, you don’t often get the chance to make a second mistake.
