Hello, Happy Xmas Ive always wanted to have a go at setting up irrigation! It seems like a great idea, saving time and if done well, improving quality. What are the favourite options out there? Ive only heard of blumats before which i am keen to try I have a 250 Litre water butt and am hoping to set up a basic beginner irrigation system with it. Struggling to get my head round the concept, what kind of system do i need to set up? Im growing with 15 Gallon pots of living soil - contains worms (so i cant let get too dry), seaweed, garden compost etc 15gal is quite big so they need a decent amount of water - my first question is how many 15 gallon pots can a 250 litre water butt supply water to? People say hand watered is best, but ive also heard that blumat watering systems can be even better, ideally I am hoping to set up a Blumat watering system with a couple of moisture sensor carrots in each pot or something along those lines At this point im considering all options so a basic cheap and easy option may win me over, but if someone can advise on a blumat or 'moisture sensor' setup, i think that could be a very good option also Any help with would be greatly appreciated!
