Traditionally using watering cans was the norm, but really unless your plants are within easy reach and are limited in number then the answer is to use hosepipes.
Most keen gardeners have old clothes set aside to wear in the garden, for practical purposes and to keep warm and dry.
Have you ever thought about how much quicker you would get through your gardening tasks if you could keep small tools and gardening essentials that you frequently need with you whilst pottering around the garden? How many times have you had to put the secateurs or trowel on the ground to use both hands and then forget where it is or lose it amongst the herbaceous border? To say nothing of all that time wasted going back and forth to the shed to collect another vital piece of equipment that you couldn’t carry the first time!
When the summer is at its peak and following a prolonged dry spell, the borders go bone dry and the lawns look a sorry site in a pale straw colour. Of course it’s time to get the hosepipe out, but make life easy by using a sprinkler and whilst you go and enjoy a nice cuppa.
