Recently received this submission from a Douglas Smith, who attended a course from from Arjen Huese at Wealden Flowers in East Sussex, UK and found these two swell life hacks in use:
Douglas explains: "Rather than wait for for buckets to be filled from a small bore hose, one "flush" sees a bucket filled instantly to the right amount (adjust the volume of the cistern to get the volume to match what you want in the bucket). And while of course you get on with what you want to do, it fills up at the slower rate - and in doing so, it does the job of waiting so that you don't have to. Used at Wealdon flowers for post havest treatment of flowers - I can see it being useful for anything from instantaneous refilling sinks in salad washing to filling watering cans."
This idea has merit if for no other reason than all gardens should feature a trolley of some kind. Yet. Douglas again: "Does what it says on the tin, a custom built narrow harvest trolley to fit down narrow paths between two rows of bushy filled out flowers with a detachable harvest pouch."
Not sure if either of these are commercial rigs or home-jiggered. I will look into that. With thanks to Douglas.
