Q.Irrigation system for greenhouse

Zone Spalding east anglia | Anonymous added on October 30, 2016 | Answered

I grow tomatoes in greenhouse. I have a computer which switches on water through individual sprinklers to pots. I am concerned about leaving mains water on when on holiday as I once had problem. I have fitted water tank in greenhouse for holiday use but tap is on same level as bottom of pots. Would it work if water was input at base of pot level into gravel trays with capillary matting..Is this satisfactory?

It is difficult to make a recommendation on this description.
I would suggest you test the alternative watering system well before trusting the system while you are away.
