Well Ive been experimenting with different hoses.First I bought a 15m length of sprinler hose from B&Q. This works ok and sprays the water about 12' from the hose. But when rolling it back up it kinks easily and I can see it snapping eventually.
Then I bought some Hozelock Soaker Hose which works great. I wrap it around the tops of the plant pots and the water soaks/dribbles out, straight into the compost.
Im actually using a combination of all three, sprinkler/soaker hose/ sprinkler hose, all connected to my timer unit. At least now I can go on holiday and not worry.
Heres a video I made..
