When I installed my new quadgrow watering system in the greenhouse, one of my questions was, “will I be able to go off on holiday for a week and come home to happy and healthy tomatoes or will everything be dead?”
We’ll I’m happy to report that yes, we went off on holiday and when I came home, my greenhouse was still going strong.
Experience has taught me that the quadgrow and chilligrow systems I have in place usually give consistent watering to the green house for 6 or 7 days before I have to top them up. This meant that I was fairly confident that I could risk a week’s holiday without my hard work in the garden being wasted.
Sure enough, we were away for 8 days and although I came home to find the water reservoirs completely empty, everything had survived with no I’ll effects.
If we were to go away longer, I’d need to add the extra reservoir to extend the watering life but I am very happy with the results.
I’ve tried various watering systems over the last few years and this has by far been the most successful.
Result: happy tomatoes and happy Eli. Below are some of the video reviews I’ve made of the new system to see how it worked out.
