It’s time to water your plants frugally. I fill my bottle drippers with the garden hose. This is quick and saves time.
The used bottles are buried between plants. They take seconds to fill.
All water gets to the roots of each plant unlike sprinklers which allow much of the water to be trapped in the foliage.
“One of the best ways to provide a steady water supply to your plants without your constant attention is the gradual watering system or drip irrigation.
“Through this method a device is employed that slowly delivers water into the soil directly around the roots.
“Commercial watering spikes can be purchased from you local garden centre however, using recycled materials you can make your own drip irrigation system for free.” 1
