The kids at Lady Elizabeth Hastings school in Thorp Arch near Wetherby have a great new activity garden built by a team of willing Parents. They have no water supply down there so they’ve built a Playhouse to collect rainwater in their Rainwater Terraces. They can’t wait to get planting!
Rainwater Terrace water butts come in a range of sizes that includes this low level water butt which is the perfect height for children to get involved in recycling rainwater whilst growing herbs, flowers and salad vegetables in the self watering planter pods.
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.
Rainwater Terrace made it in to 10 of the best water butts put together by Gardeners World.
