Gardening kit here consists of an ancient rotovator, then forks, spades, rakes, trowels and hand forks, hoes but they don't get used much as our soil and planting patterns aren't very hoe friendly, plus mowers and strimmer, scythe, hedge cutters and a chain saw. And a hose or two and watering cans. I hardly water here because it's not practical and things have to survive. Annual babies do get a bit of water at the start, or if I notice that they are about to croak, perennials get nothing extra, shrubs get one good watering at the start. It's not the way everyone would want to do it, but it's just how it is. I did worry for a few weeks when it was incredibly dry, and I think that it does mean that flowers don't last as long standing in the field as they might, but time will tell whether I'm barking up the wrong tree or surviving.
