Thursday 23rd March - The Big Drippa

The Big Drippa is my exciting techno greenhouse wonder toy which I installed on the weekend. The idea is that you fill the plastic sack full of water which drips very slowly into the soil over quite a long period. Our salad leaves are looking pretty dry and the hope is that this will cut down watering trips in the week. I called in on the greenhouse last night and was really pleased to find it had worked.

There are 6 nozzles, each of which can be adjusted and I hope that they are now set correctly. I am very tempted to order another one for the tomatoes...

Hi Dave,

It's from the Organic Gardening Catalogue and costs £15.25 which I reckon is well worth it as it should last for years. If you click on the Big Drippa in the post it should take you straight there.

Think I'll order mine now before the rush!!

Teehee! Brilliant idea Al, I feel a face painting weekend in the making.

I've seen these before and thought they looked gimmicky, but seeing a real pic of it, i can see it'll be great. I may get one for the conservatory. Cheers Frankie
