"Forget summer watering woes." Kitchen Garden Magazine
Automatically water your growbags with this timed watering kit.
Simply click it into place and set the timer, the kit will water your grow bags at the set times.
The battery operated timer has 10 water duration options from 1 minute to 120 minutes and 11 frequency options from every hour to every week.
The Click & Drip reduces water waste by releasing water slowly and evenly so that roots have time to take water up before it puddles and evaporates or runs-off. The slow, even watering also helps to prevent blossom end rot and splitting.
This kit waters 3 grow bags but if you have more grow bags extension kits are available.
The optional reservoir holds 25 Litres, sufficient for 3 grow bags for 3-7 days depending on plant size. Alternatively the Click & Drip kit connects to any water butt with a hozelock type water butt tap which you can add to your order.

The Click & Drip growbag irrigation kit waters plants with less waste and less risk of over-watering and under-watering than using a watering can or porous pipe.
When plants are watered by a watering can as little as 10% to 30% of the water reaches the roots of the plants. The rest of the water runs off or evaporates. The slow drip rate of the Click & Drip growbag watering kit (180ml per drip hole per hour from a 100litre water butt) means that the soil has chance to absorb the water rather than it forming puddles and evaporating or running-off.
Overwatering leads to 3 main problems:
1. Slow-take up - If plants are given a thorough soaking, the water makes the compost or soil especially moist. This means that the roots have little access to oxygen, and can only take-up a fraction of the water that they require.
2. Drain-off - Most of the water has drained away before the roots have good access to air, so they are not able to take-up the amount of water they need for healthy growth.
3. Suffocation - Overwatering will fill air-gaps in the soil with water, which means that roots will suffocate and rot.
Benefits of slow drip watering
Plants need access to a balance of water and oxygen to maintain healthy growth. Slow drip watering gives plants plenty of time to take up water, as and when they need to.
Easy to control the precise amount of water each plant receives. No over or under watering, which are the main causes of root rot and split fruit.
Reduced risk of rot and fungal infections, as only the soil is moistened and leaves are never wet.
The dripper holes in the irrigation pipe only open with internal pressure. Therefore the pipe can be buried under compost, soil or mulch to help retain moisture levels around the roots and to reduce loss of water to evaporation.
