Pair of Basket Fountain Watering kits

Pair of Basket Fountain Watering kits £4.99
The amazing New Basket Watering Fountain kit solves a problem many of us experienced in last Summer’s heat wave – getting and keeping enough water where it is needed in your hanging baskets. It’s the latest innovation by Plantopia – who invented the best-selling Easy Fill Hanging Baskets – this clever device takes water to the heart of the basket, slowly releasing it where it is needed in the root zone, through small holes that drop water out. Designed to specially clip fit onto the bottom of 12′ and 15′ Easy Fill baskets, they will also do the same job on traditional wire mesh, rattan or other baskets, and even larger pots and containers too. The flared funnel end sits neatly and unobtrusively on the edge of the basket, making it easy to fill with a hose or watering can, quickly getting feed and water to the inside of the basket – hard to reach when watering from above. Saves you time and water too! A great value, Great British invention that every proud hanging basket grower should have. Sure to win Gardening Awards this season.
