HOW GREEN IS YOUR GARDENING?
1. USE A RAIN BARREL
Did you know that the average roof collects 600 gallons of water for every inch of rain? Collecting rainwater for your garden is such an easy way to conserve freshwater, whilst also reducing your water bill.
Green Basics Rainbarrel RRP: £126.00
The new elho rain barrel is made from 100% recycled plastic, and makes it easy to collect rainwater to keep your garden healthy & well soaked. The tank has a 200-litre capacity and fits drainpipes from Ø68 up to Ø80 mm. It also has a planter attached to the top, so you can brighten up your water tank with plants and flowers! The tap is positioned at a convenient height, so you can easily fill up your watering can. It’s even possible to attach a garden hose and water the entire garden. A useful, and almost instant way to save water. The green basics water tank automatically fills up during a shower, and when it’s full it will simply let the surplus water out through the drainage. The water tank is UV protected so can be placed in full sun, and is fit for temperatures down to -20°C.
2. USE A WATERING CAN RATHER THAN TURNING ON A SPRINKLER
Running a typical sprinkler from a standard garden hose (5/8″) for one hour uses about 1,020 gallons of water; if you run it three times per week, that is about 12,240 gallons per month. Get back to basics and fill up a watering can a couple of times and reserve your water for where it is really needed.
Green Basics Watering Can RRP: £15.99
This cool watering can has a generous 10-litre capacity and is made from 100% recycled material so you can walk across the garden with it guilt free! This is an absolute must have for healthy plants, crafted to the best quality so you’ll enjoy it for years to come.
3. SELF-WATERING POTS
It’s not always easy to find the time to water your plants as much as you’d like to, especially now that we are into holiday season where two weeks away at the wrong time can be a disaster for our plants. Self watering pots are a great way to minimise water waste and look out for your plants while you are away.
Greenville Collection RRP: £9.99-£40.99
The Greenville collection from elho all contain an integrated water reservoir within their modern, sophisticated design. These flower pots are made from plastic production waste, are easy to clean, and sturdy.
Greenville Round RRP: £9.99-40.99
Greenville hanging basket RRP: £12.49
Greenville Bowl: £15.49
