Howdy gardeners. Happy New Year to you all! We hope you had a good 2018. The summer was a hot one, wasn't it?! It was a busy year for us and we've been enjoying a well-earned rest over the winter. Looking forward now and planning for the year ahead, we have news I want to share with you.

19mm for 2019. Bigger is Better!

I promise this was just a happy coincidence. We will be stocking a full range of 19mm fittings and 19mm LDPE pipe for irrigation systems ready for the spring of 2019. This will allow all you happy gardeners to build even larger irrigation systems as the flow of water through 19mm is greatly increased compared to 13mm. We will be sourcing the 19mm LDPE pipe and their respective fittings from the same manufacturers as the 13mm range, so you can expect the same level of quality.

I will write up a bunch of guides for you to help with choosing the correct size pipe and fittings for your next garden irrigation project. Watch this space.

New Easy Garden Irrigation Kits

Over the last few years, we've been selling garden irrigation kits that we have compiled and assembled ourselves using the best components available, meaning you guys can quickly and easily buy with confidence and knowledge that you will get a great system. We only had three styles available, each with three options, so a limited range. They have been very popular, but we've learnt that we needed to offer more choice. 

Based on feedback from customers and professionals, this year we will be launching three new styles, each with three options. Watch this space. We will, of course, let you know when we launch these. Sign up to our newsletter to be the first to find out when they launch.

Extended Range of Claber and Rain Bird Products

We will be stocking more of these manufacturers' products in 2019. Just some extra odds and sods to give you a better selection, nothing too exciting. We are, however, excited to see a new product from Claber. Springy, the latest-generation of extendable hose. It's not available yet, but have a watch of their demo video below.

Warehouse Expansion

As I've already mentioned, 2018 was a busy year for us. Our business has been growing rapidly due to the ever-increasing popularity of automatic watering systems, and with thanks to you, our amazing customers. I did lie a little when I said we had a rest over the winter. We actually used this time to completely overhaul the warehouse operation to ensure that we can continue to meet our customers' high expectations (**cough, cough, 5 Stars on Trustpilot** ). We're confident that we're ready for any further increase in demand and look forward to talking with you all this year.

Have a good 2019. Sean and the team.
