I just got a trickle hose from the pound shop and fixed it to one of these, no more than a minute a day if fixed to a garden tap, but you will have to have a trial run with a gravity fed water butt. http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004HKV1EI?keywords=water%20timer&qid=1456487603&ref_=sr_1_2&s=outdoors&sr=1-2
I have sent off for 6 Hozelock grow bag waterers from Wigley DIY. http://www.wigleydiy.co.uk/store/product/48126/Hozelock-2810-Growbag-Waterer/
...... I get the same effect by tucking strips of capillary matting into the bag and supporting it over a trough of water made from black plastic over old 4x2s - it takes 5 minutes to set up and you can make the trough slightly longer which makes space to stand a "budgie waterer" bottle for when you're away.
At some point I'll take some photos to show how easy this is (the construction not the inebriation) - but I'm a bit busy at the moment setting up heat & light for my tender seedlings. I should be able to put something in 'Top Tips' in maybe 3-4 weeks - certainly before the last frosts.Cheers.PS. You've invested in a good solution - so make sure it lasts by keeping the sun off the plastic - cover every exposed corner or exposed widget with something completely opaque that won't get blown off.
Thank you Vinlander. I have suddenly understood how your budgie waterer works. The plants are ABOVE the water container. Sorry I couldn't fully understand your original explanation.May
That's very interesting. What capillary matting did you use. I was a bit put off as a friends went mouldy looking in her greenhouse.
If the trough is deep enough, will it not hold water for a couple of weeks?
