    That's an interesting looking device Jeremie.
    Does it have many holes all the way down the inground part?

    Unfortunately at my place the ants would just love such a 'highrise' apartment building, even if it was halfway in the ground. :D

    Gose ok I should of made the top as a t to make it easier to push in the ground.

    I had about 40 native plants i planted to revegge over lantana last year but they were looking very dry last week. I thought i would try some deep root watering should of taken before and after pics of the plants as after watering them once the next day they looked a 100x better.

    And if we get this 100mm of rain they are say they will be fine for some time to come.
