Planning Irrigation for your Garden

June 17, 2013

Supplying adequate water to plants is essential to having a successful garden.

In this video we demonstrate the best ways of watering your garden to give maximum benefit to your plants. We present an easy way to use old plastic bottles to keep plants well watered during hot weather along with advice on saving water and reducing plant diseases. In the second half of the video, we demonstrate how to plan and install a drip irrigation system that will automatically keep your garden well watered.

You can plan drip irrigation layouts using the drawing tools available in our Almanac Garden Planner which is available here.
