I am leaving on Wednesday for a business trip, and will be back only on Sunday night. I have patio plants for tomatoes, peppers, roses, geraniums, etc. and I usually water them every day. However, now that I will be away for 4-5 days, what is the best way to get them watered everyday when I am away? Asking someone to come to do that is not an option.

I have heard of automatic watering products, but will they be available with retailers like Lowes or Home Depot? I don't have time to order something online in the next 3 days.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Can you put them in the shade anywhere?
My method is to put the liter bottles with a tiny hole in the bottle so only a few drops come out at a time.....or put 2 Bottles and put a stip of cloth out the top of one and let it self water.

Worth a try.
