Gardening expert shares ‘ideal’ system for watering plants while you’re away from home


Even the most dedicated gardeners can forget to water their plants once in a while. Going on holiday can also make watering plants difficult, especially if you don’t have someone to come to your house and water them for you. There are a plethora of ways you can water your plants without having to do it manually.

With a heatwave arriving in the UK today, many gardeners may be worried about how often they should be watering their plants.

If you have a watering system, then Chris recommended setting a timer for twice a day.

He said: “I’d have it early in the morning and in the evening.

“Maybe if you have it coming on at 8am and then 8pm for half an hour or an hour depending how hot the weather is.

You will lose moisture from evaporation.

Pop your potted plants in the shade and water them more regularly than usual.

Using cold tap water for your plants is fine.

Keep an eye on plants that like shade and those that are used to cooler, damper conditions as they could struggle.
