I was just counting them too!

Best thing that I bought for all my pots was;

a - water retaining gel for the compost

and

b - £3.99 plastic "trugs" (like this..... http://bit.ly/OI22O3 )from Lidl. I just stand the pots in it for a couple of hours once every five or six days. Except for the Brugmansia, Datura and Iochroma which all need a daily soak

Sorry! Love the outside of your cottage Steve!

Good tip Meanie thanks, I have trays along the back and a couple in the front so can catch the rain and save watering for the bigger pots

Why do you have so many watering cans, Steve? You have just two hands. :)))

Yes, it is very green. That Acer in the back is fantastic, mine always have something with leaves, when they have sun.
