Going away? Keep your plants wet: a bowl with plenty of water, placing one end of the string inside the container and the other end in the pot you want to water. By capillary action, the water will naturally move from the container to the pot. Gloucestershire Resource Centre http://www.grcltd.org/scrapstore/
