Holiday watering

Going away for 10 days and no one to water my 3 tomato plants in my mini greenhouse. They are in a growbag. Any ideas



The simplest answer is to recruit a reliable friend to pop in and water them (oh, you said there's no-one :( )

Otherwise it's elaborate arrangements of slow-release pipes or wicking strips of felt.

You get a auto watering system - and pipe it in - not expensive but takes time to set up - another method is to hang a water container up fill with water and secure a drip feed to the end of a pipe - i use this method for my watermelons
