Do I need to water the hedge?
Most hedge nurseries recommend drip watering for the hedge to help establish the hedge and reduce plant losses. In addition, regular watering with an irrigation system will speed up the establishment of the hedge and produce more growth each season, creating a hedging screen more quickly.
Using the hedge watering kit
The hedge irrigation drip kit can be either connected direct to an outdoor tap, or connected to the tap using a hose with a standard quick connector.
Use 16mm above ground supply pipe if the border is some distance from the tap, or use a hose to connect. Drip kit requires DB valve to comply with Water Regulations.
A simple timer can be added to the hedge irrigation kit to provide automated watering each day. The ideal time to water the hedge is very early in the morning.
