"Forget summer watering woes." Kitchen Garden Magazine
Our Click & Drip grow bag watering kit prevents plants from becoming too wet, reduces water waste and helps to prevent problems caused by erratic watering, such as blossom end rot.
Water drips slowly into the grow bags so it is taken-up by the roots instead of forming puddles. The drip holes only open with internal pressure, so won’t be blocked by the grow bag soil.
The Standard Kit waters 3 grow bags and 'Add-on' kits are available to water more grow bags.
The optional reservoir holds 25 Litres to keep 3 grow bags watered for 3-10 days depending on plant size. Alternatively the Click & Drip kit simply clicks onto any water butt.
Choose an option with the timer if you want to set the frequency and duration of your watering. More information about the timer
Our Add-on Kit for the Growbag Click & Drip waters an extra 3 growbags, when connected to your standard Growbag Click & Drip.
Benefits of Click & Drip for Growbag
- The slow drip reduces loss to evaporation and run-off.
- Simple to install.
- Includes everything you need to irrigate 3 grow bags.
- Extension kits available to water more grow bags.
- No blockages.
- Ideal for holiday watering, especially when used with the timer.
540ml is released into each grow bag per hour (from a 100litre waterbutt).
Your waterbutt tap will need to be higher than the area you will be watering.
To connect the Click & Drip to your waterbutt, you require a hozelock type waterbutt tap. If your waterbutt does not have this sort of tap you can add one 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.
