Container Irrigation Kit

Ideal for trees in containers
  • From £9.49 (ex VAT)

Our Container Irrigation Kit ensures that your plant receives the appropriate amount of water – no more under or over watering!

This self-monitoring and self-dispensing watering system uses capillary action to channel the required amount of water from the reservoir to the roots of your plant. Specifically designed for container grown plants, it's ideal for patio containers, feature/entrance-way trees, remote locations and holiday homes. Please note, it should be used in conjunction with surface watering.

We offer the Container Irrigation Kit in two sizes, the medium is ideal for patio plants and small trees in medium sized pots (min pot size - 24cm wide base and 50cm height). The large system is suited to our taller trees which will be grown in big pots (min pot size - 24cm wide base and 65cm height).

We also stock irrigation systems for planting out into a border or lawn.

Delivery Timescales

For pleached and mature trees (trees over 2.5m in height), we group orders together by geographic area for specialist delivery - we will contact these customers about the delivery date.

Trees on pre-order are still growing and an estimate of when they will be ready is on the product/basket page. Orders are despatched once all trees are ready.

Gift trees and those required by a specific date can be accommodated with pleasure, although we accept no legal responsibility for late deliveries.

To collect trees, please book an appointment. Delivery charges will be refunded.

The product table at the bottom of the page gives the forms and sizes available for this variety. Please note, photos are a guideline as all plants are unique. *Pot sizes may vary. Below are definitions of terms:

Supplied Size: Height measured from the top of the pot.

Single Stem / Pruned and shaped: Classic shaped tree with a single stem that has had pruning to help create a beautiful, natural shape.

Top grafted: A height noted next to this form refers to the length of clear stem, which will not grow taller. Only the head of branches will develop. Top grafted trees do not require complicated pruning and are ideal for small spaces.

Feathered: A feathered tree has branches from the bottom of the trunk all the way up. These branches can be removed if a clear stem is required.

Multi Stem: A multi stem tree has two or more stems arising from or near ground level, growing from one root system.

Bush: A plant with many stems low down, rather than one clear stem.

Clump: Several plants in one pot that can give the appearance of a multi stemmed and very bushy tree.

Climber: A plant that is a natural climber and will be delivered usually running up a bamboo cane, ready to position in the garden.

Standard Tree: A more mature tree with an upright clear stem of approximately 1.8m-2.0m (measured from the soil to the lowest branches of the crown). Standards are available in different forms relating to their girth size (circumference of the stem measured 1m above soil level), not height:

Standard  either 6-10cm or 8-10cm girth, approximately 2.5-3.0m in height
Premium Standard  10-12cm girth, approximately 3.0-3.5m in height
Heavy Standard  12-14cm girth, approximately 3.5-4.5m in height
