“In Castle Rock Washington, we have planted an ever increasing number of H2O Labor Saver baskets for 6 years. We began with just a few (12) along with our traditional 10 gallon ‘city basket’ containers. We have added baskets each year, as the places for hanging them has increased. Our Labor Saver baskets are watered M-W-F. Wednesday the are fertilized with Natures Source Plant Food. As the season progressed the 10 gallon baskets needed water every day. The public works department, who waters all the city baskets with a water truck and long wand, kept records of number of hours of watering needed. The documentation, with consideration for weather patterns, showed that the H20 Labor Savers were truly a labor saver. The 40% savings to labor was accurate and encouraging.
This year we planted 161 of the Labor Saver baskets. Some were sponsored by businesses and homeowners as a fundraiser. People have wanted to buy the baskets for years, but we are a non-profit and do not sell them. But the ability to sponsor a basket proved to be a popular fundraiser for Castle Rock Blooms.
