When it hasn’t rained, unsurprisingly I have to water the plants. Using the hose takes 10 minutes at least.
This is the quick and easy way. Put a big bin in a place convenient to the plants, put the hose in and turn it on. Water pressure is not great, so filling it takes a while – so I come back later when it’s full, and use a scoop to water the plants. It only takes two or three minutes to water the whole garden.
