HOW TO EASILY AND CHEAPLY IRRIGATE YOUR BACKYARD CROPS DURING A DRY SEASON?

Flipped upside down plastic bottle filled with water

During hot seasons, it’s important that we keep ourselves and our plants well hydrated. In the heat and sun, our bodies perspire to cool us down, and plants transpire in the midday heat too. Just as we rely on our water bottles throughout the day, plants can benefit from a slow-release watering system as well.

Fill your bottle to the top with water. Then flip the bottle upside down and bury it about two inches into the soil. As the soil dries out from your last watering, fluid will slowly drip from the bottle into your soil, ensuring that your plant receives just the moisture it needs to thrive. It is amazing but, the plant consumes very little water a day and that 1L plastic bottle can serve a crop for a number of days during the week.
