A soaker hose can help keep your beds and lawn watered, and they are ideal for helping to establish young plants and hedges.
The hose in this video is almost 100m long, but you can buy good examples from 10m upwards but I always recommend getting one a bit bigger than you think you’re going to need – you won’t regret it.
Available in 10m, 15m or 25m, the Hozelock Soaker Hose comes with a 2-Year Manufacturers Warranty.
It’s supplied with connectors so that you can join it up to other soaker hoses – ideal if you have a large garden and want to cover more ground!
If needs be, the Hozelock Soaker Hose can be buried under the soil in your garden which helps the water get down to the roots of the plants more reliably than simply watering the surface.
