How to make your own mini waterbutt at home

7th Mar 2023

We all know plants need water to stay alive, but did you know plants actually prefer rain water than water from the tap. This is because rain water contains lots of nutrients which help plants to grow and flourish.

Waterbutts are a great way for collecting rain water to water the garden and as we usually get plenty of rain here in Northern Ireland they are a great way to catch water to use on drier days.

Making your own mini waterbutt is a simple way to collect rain water, save water and keep our flowers and gardens blooming.
