We have probably finished our tree watering for the year, with autumn on the horizon and some rain actually falling recently.
We have been out watering about 18 times this year, using our “new” bowser, holding around 1000 litres. This year, the first fill of the morning has been used to water the 53 trees of the newly planted Memorial wood, with a refill used to water other trees that we planted both last year and in the previous year as well as few others that were struggling.
That means we must have watered around 36,000 litres, or 3,600 watering cans onto our 100 or so trees. Which is about 1,800 tree waterings.
We have had a couple of failures, one of which is in the memorial wood, so should be replaced in the coming planting season. And next year, we should be out doing it all again!
