Episode 172. Efficient watering.

In this week’s podcast, I discuss how I try to be efficient with watering my plants. I also discuss the latest on the allotment and vegetable patch.

The diary

Each week I discuss the latest on the plots including

  • Being on call and gardening at the same time
  • Vermin in the garden?
  • Weeds, weeds and weeds.

And much more.

Efficient watering.

Water is such a valuable resource. I often moan about how we undervalue this resource. In this episode, I discuss the methods I have developed to make the most of water.

The key points that I have found for these are

  • collect as much rainwater as possible
  • water at the roots of plants
  • water what is needed and when needed
  • mulch, mulch and mulch.

I mention a watering system I am looking into. Until I have saved up for this I am not recommending this piece of kit but should it be of interest to you the link is here.

Special thanx to lee from The skinny jean gardener for the tickets that I won for gardeners world live. Check out his podcast.
