Irrigation and Water Treatments
With the weather becoming ever more unpredictable with prolonged dry spells, it is even more important for us to be water wise by making the best use of water. The sooner water butts are installed to catch and store precious rain the better. Irrigation systems save water and our natural water treatments ensure stored water stays odour and alage free.

- Solar Tap Timer - A weather responsive tap timer that regulates water from a tap.
- Irrigation Systems - Build your own irrigation system containing drippers and misters.
- Eco Water Treatments - Use these new natural water treatments to keep your water feature and waterbutts free from odour and algae growth. Water Slices - Add these water slices to hanging baskets and containers to stop them drying out.
As recommended in the Saturday Telegraph - Add Water Slices to your hanging bags, hanging baskets and containers to stop them drying out and to reduce the amount of watering needed. Hanging bags and baskets need alot of water and can easily dry out - stop this happening by adding a water slice. Available in packs of 4 or 12.
Water Slices absorb water as you water and retain it longer than compost alone, so less watering for you! Plant roots will penetrate the slice and take out the water. Soak the disc overnight in water and it will dramatically increase in size! Cut the slice in quarters and place evenly in the bag as you fill it with compost. Plant the hanging bags / basket / copntainer up as normal and water.Learn More
