Re: Easy drip irrigation for garden

Great tips, thanks!

I have found the absolutely best method for keeping a plant moist is mulching. It makes all the difference in the world. The mulch holds the moisture in, and the plant/root system doesn't dry out nearly as quickly, and watering needs are much less. Straw has become my favorite mulch of choice, with hardwood leaves put down in the fall, and then in the spring straw on top.
