Unbelievable product takes all the hassle out of watering plant. Cant recommend enough for newly sowed small trees.
Great product and fast delivery. All good.
Bought the porous hose for a new hedge I set as it was taking me hours to water. Works fantastic just turn it on and come back later to turn it. Waters just where you want at the root no waste.
Just what I needed to water a new hedge in the middle of the longest dry spell in my time in Ireland, installed for a few days now and product seems to water equally across the length of the pipe, approx 100 meters.
Once unwound the hose was easily laid out around the many shrubs in a bed which has made watering very easy.
Great product. Great company. Collection service is the business.

Note: We don't ship plants on Fridays due to the extended period they would remain without light & water
