Drip irrigation- A pinner wrote: I do this every year and it works great! Especially during a long Texas drought- less water waste. The only thing that kept my plants going, and once the plants get growing they hide the bottles. Quick and easy way to fertilize too! Should work well in Arizona too!
How to Make a Drip Irrigator from a Plastic Bottle
Drip irrigation is a cost-effective method of watering your plants. Through a network of inexpensive pipes and tubing, drip irrigation allows for water to slowly drip directly to the plants’ roots, without any of the water wastage that is typically encountered with standard plant-watering methods. Drip irrigation lets a steady supply of water be delivered to your plants over a period of time, so you do not have to worry about having to deal with dry or wilted plants during hot summer months.
