The perfect solution for slow release watering of newly planted trees! The Barcham Hydration bag is zipped around the stem of the tree, with no need for staking.
These are long lasting and have two metal eyelets at the top of the zip for security if needed. It takes clean (tap) water to fill and has a capacity of 70 litres which is filled through a slot at the top.
The watering bag will release water very slowly, over a period of 3-5 hours, reducing the frequency of watering to once every 3-5 days for the first 2 seasons after planting.
These bags can be re-used and also zipped together to give greater capacity for larger trees, we recommend a maximum of 2 bags zipped together.
When zipped together, the capacity for water holding is increased to a potential 89 litres, the 2 bag set up is appropriate for trees which are over 30cm in girth (Super Instant).
