Checking or Servicing your existing water system

Each time the planting is changed the water system will need to be repaired.  As the baskets come down the spaghetti tubes are entwined with the plant stems as the plants have been growing all season, and often being trailing/climbing plants they naturally wind each other up!

We try and disentangle the pipes , remove the baskets, or whichever container it is and hang up the next one.  Ideally the water system is on while we do this so as we restake the spaghetti we can see the water dripping and see any leaks that we can then repair.

Unserviced systems inevitably leak and baskets die.  It is a way of insuring all your plants look their best.  If its on a timer and therefore an automatic system, so turns on/off at regular intervals automatically,  we are happy to gaurantee your plants.  We would replace everything if necessary

The only maintainance your plants need is that you give them water daily please, please please!

Fitted Watering System


Water systems are the key to great baskets.  Watering systems save a lot of time and effort.  We find a water source as near to the display as possible, install a tap and from that link pipework around a building with 16mm black plastic pipe.

Remember to turn the system on and off twice each day.  The plants not only grow, but absolutely flourish for months on end!

If turning the tap on and off manually is inconvenient, we recommend having a water timer fitted, please order separately.
