    I have several of these which I use for growing tomatoes and chilli plants. I started off with one, quite a few years ago, and was so impressed that I gradually added more. They are expensive to start with, but they will last a very long time.

    I believe that the literature says that they will keep the plants going for a fortnight if the reservoirs is filled to the top. If the weather is hot, I don't think the water will last that long. I don't have the extra reservoir, so I can't comment on that.

    The only issue I had was last year, when the peat free compost didn't appear to be drawing up the water. It's something I'll need to look at this year.

    I'm attaching a photo from a few years ago. the older version had one long tank for 4 pots rather than 2 tanks, each for two pots.

      I don't have Quadgrows, but they clearly do a good job for you, jools. Lovely photo to see at this time of year, by the way.

        Never thought about or seen this system but I prefer to use a watering timer system that is battery operated like this https://www.screwfix.com/p/titan-watering-timer/579pt used together with the micro hose system connected to the mains to water my greenhouse. I've also used it down my allotments using a gravity fed system into a micro hose to deliver water during the summer when I can't get down to water, because of the programming you can do its a piece of cake and as it uses a PP3 battery it is not expensive as a battery lasts a whole year growing season.

          I don't suppose anyone has the instructions for the holiday watering kit do they? I mean the one that goes with the two-tank version. The online version has gone now the Greenhouse Sensation site is no longer operating.
