You may have seen my recent review about finding easier ways to keep my patio pots and containers watered (http://gardeningregisterblog.co.uk/index.php/hozelock-spiral-hose-set-review). I came across a sprial hose which has turned out to be a great buy but I wanted something I could leave running for a short amount of time to help with my larger pots and containers.
Looking around Swell UK‘s website I came across a Hozelock Flexi Spray which looked like it may do the job. It is currently on sale for £24.99* (RRP £39.99*).
Delivery and Packaging
The spray arrived the day after I ordered it and it was well protected in several layers of bubblewrap.
There wasn’t much to prepare this product; I just removed it from the plastic and cardboard packaging and clicked it onto the end of the hose! Simple!!
The Flexi Spray consists of a gun-type handle, a long, tough shaft and the spray head.
The handle has a knob to adjust the flow of water from 100% to 50% to help save water as well as a lock to enable to spray to sit by itself and keep watering.
The head end of the spray rotates to one of four different settings. The first makes the water flow like a normal tap, the second is a strong, thin blast of water which could be used for reaching areas further away or for cleaning the car or patio, the third is a soft flow of water which is ideal for watering more delicate plants. The final setting is for using the spray standing up and acts like a sprinkler, covering an area of approximately 69 square metres (according to the packaging).
I first of all bent the shaft into a shape which meant it would stand up by itself or resting against the pots. I found it quite hard work but once it is in the correct shape it doesn’t move but I will be able to bend it to another shape if needed.
Once shaped I set the spray to Sprinkler and placed it between the pots I wanted watering, having locked it in place I turned on the tap and my pots were happily watered while I went and had a cup of tea.
This Flexi Spray couldn’t be easier to use and it will save me quite a bit of time during hot, dry conditions.
