A lot of time is spent watering the garden and anything that can make this easier or more efficient would be welcomed. There are a wide range of irrigation timers and computerised watering controls
available that can give the gift of precious time, while having the added benefit of ensuring the garden is watered regularly, efficiently and reliably, at a time of day when the garden can benefit from it the most. There is something for every budget and technological preference - from a mechanical timer set by turning a dial to a Bluetooth-connected water computer managed with an app on a smartphone that provides advice and information while simultaneously controlling your watering.
A good quality hose spray gun
with multiple settings can make a fabulous gift if your gardener has a basic nozzle, and there are options for gentle watering, cleaning and multi-purpose spraying.
If your gardener struggles with hoses that kink or they tend to leave them lying around the garden, a retractable hose reel
is a great idea and can be a subtle way of improving the health and safety in the garden for everyone! Alternatively, a hose trolley can help manoeuvre the hose around the garden, while providing a tidy and compact storage system that also benefits the hose.
If your gardener is going away for the holidays you can give the gift of peace of mind with a solar-powered AquaBloom
solar-powered micro-irrigation kit that can water a small garden or containers for a set time from a bucket of water. No power or tap required.
