Being hands on in the garden can be very rewarding whether that’s planting seedlings in the flower beds, nurturing a sick plant back to health or growing prize winning dahlia. Most of us however, forget that it is the watering that has made the difference.
From many years experience of growing and selling plants at Poplar Nurseries, we know that watering is possibly the most important and tricky job for any gardener to get right. There are the occasional times when plants are killed through kindness, of too much water being given, but generally most plant failings come as a result of not enough water being provided, particularly with new plantings and during the warmer summer and autumn months.
Another problem time is when you want to take a break from everything and go away on a well deserved holiday. There are solutions, either ask a neighbor to water your cherished garden and plants as best they can, or invest in a programmable irrigation system that, with a little planning and fitting, will water everything from your flower beds to your hanging baskets, tubs and containers.
At Poplar Nurseries we stock of a wide range of Hozelock products, micro irrigation systems from Gardena a broad selection of water butts from Stewart Plastics and watering cans from Haws.
