Automated watering.......... I live in Scotland so it kinda is automated even in the summer :) but agree, something to look at.
Over the summer I had a 7 day break and came back to a very dry set of pots, lost a few bits and bobs, and it certainly would stop my excessive use of the hose pipe.
Deffinately something to have a think about.

You might be surprised, even with Scottish Liquid Sunshine, how little water actually get into the pots even in a major downpour. The plants create a natural umbrella and stop the rain getting through to the soil. After all the work you've done it would be a shame to lose plants.
