In long dry spells you may need to top up the water in the Planter trays that the side and top planters take their water from. Hopefully you can use water stored in the Rainwater Terrace but if not just use tap water. Each tray holds about 2.5 litres of water before it overflows into the container below.
When installing a water butt we often look for places that are hidden away for example behind a shed or greenhouse or down the side of a garage out of sight, this often means that the water butt and its store of fresh rainwater is simply forgotten about.
Rainwater Terrace water butts address this issue, our water butts look great installed or a patio or at the front of a property, they can be made in to a stunning feature by planting them with cascading trailing greenery and flowers.
Try planting up with plants that you would usually plant in a hanging basket such as :-
Petunia – trailing,
Begonia – trailing,
Pelargonium – Ivy leaf,
Dichondra 'Silver Falls’
Verbena, Fuchsia – trailing
Regular dead heading with ensure flowering all summer long keeping the water butt planters looking fantastic.
