    To use any electrical components outdoors they’d have to be adequately protected from moisture and water (IP67 would do the trick I’d say). Based on your pictures, it seems to me that you used standard components meant for dry and clean indoor conditions (ie not suitable for use outdoors or even in bathrooms). Thus this setting is probably unsafe as it is. Please, check your components and change them to protected ones before further use in your garden.
