Our usual holiday watering helper is ill at the moment and can't help when we go away in a couple of weeks time.

In the past when this has happened we've tried to set up several sprinklers with a watering computer to give all our pots a decent watering every day.

This has always been relatively successful but can be a lottery because of water pressures and the like.

I'd prefer to do a nice micro-irrigation setup but unfortunately don't have the time so I wondered if anyone has experience with good sprinklers for this?

At the moment I have two bar sprinklers and am looking for something to water over a relatively small area (perhaps 2 to 3 meters diameter) with a high throw. Ideally it would work with fairly low pressure as although we have good pressure it's obviously dropping a fair bit with three sprinklers on.

Any suggestions?

    Imagine someone holding forth on biology whose only knowledge of the subject is the Book of British Birds, and you have a rough idea of what it feels like to read Richard Dawkins on theology: Terry Eagleton
