I Couldn’t do without this Week8th July 2009 • I Couldn't Do Without • Stephanie Donaldson
My waterbutts, water tanks and watering cans. At this time of year they really come into their own. I have a waterbutt or tank that fills from each downpipe, as well as one each side of the greenhouse feeding water from the gutters. I also have sufficient watering cans (a motley crew) to have one conveniently placed next to each water source.
When I finish routine watering, I fill each can so that it is ready and waiting for any emergency watering that may be needed.
Be sure to read my article on water conservation.
