Soaker Hose Watering System

Always hoping for a warm summer this year, a watering system has been put in place on the nursery beds to save time should the warm weather ever arrive. The first piece of black soaker hose was put down when the sweet peas were planted, see blog entry 12th June 'Sweet Pea 'Albutt Blue', 'Blue Danube' and 'Mars'.

This hose has now been extended to a length that will now water the newly planted bulbs and plants that will provide the cut flowers this summer. A second soaker hose has been added to the heeling in bed where a number of stock and large ornamental plants, used for the winter displays, are kept. The third hose has been placed on one of the two vegetable patches. The gardeners can now water the three beds and be elsewhere in the gardens whilst the water gets precisely where it is needed, now all that is needed is that elusive warm summer.
