I agree, a proper leaky pipe - not just a perforated hosepipe - has been a
boon to us in this very hot, dry summer. I've hardly lifted a watering can
and wouldn't consider a sprinkler or a hosepipe anyway.
It's well worth the investment even for the biggest garden. Next time Lidl
has some we'll get more.
