We all want a stress free holiday and some time to relax and unwind – so we’ve created a great range of holiday watering solutions to help you prepare your garden before taking that well deserved break, designed to ensure the garden you’ve worked hard on all year round is still in full bloom when you arrive back at home.
Here are our three top tips to keep your garden in tip top shape whilst you’re away:
1. Invest in watering solutions that can keep your buds and borders moist whilst you’re away.
2. A day or so before you leave; weed your beds (weeds compete for water).
3. Cut the grass and pile the clippings near the beds. This kills two birds with one stone. Not only will the lawn be neater when you return, but you now have a mulch.
Hozelock’s watering solutions will help your plants survive and encourage the beds to bloom without the need for help from a friendly neighbour or nearby family.
If you haven’t invested in one already, our Automatic Holiday Watering Irrigation System is perfect for this time of year. It is an easy to install and sophisticated system, which provides your plants with a sufficient water supply to make sure that they continue to thrive throughout the hotter summer months when you are away from the home.
You could also try our Growbag Waterer and Flower & Vegetable Planter great for the holiday season. It features a large capacity 15 litre reservoir that will keep plants watered for up to 14 days and help support healthier plant growth, giving you peace of mind while you’re not around!
Alternatively, cover the soil surface with our water-absorbing gel, watering it so that it swells and absorbs the water. The gel provides a protective barrier to stop water evaporating from the compost and also gives the compost some moisture.
So, there you have it! You can head off and enjoy your holiday knowing that when you return, with the help of our products, your garden will still look beautiful.
