Ta Blakest,........my, aren't you neat RD?
I do the plastic bottle with hole in lid too and place it in a yogurt pot buried in the plant pot(it stops the hole getting bunged up with soil) Very efficient watering system , I say....and FREE!
I use plastic bottles filled with rain water(I'm on meter)and lay them around courgette plants.They warm the soil by trapping the heat of the sun(round orange ball, just reminding me)and release it at night.
I get the flower buckets(5 for 99p) from Morrisons too and use them as pots etc. and drip water to water the GH.
