Folks,

I am working on a detailed post on setting up an automatic/manual drip irrigation system for a garden. As I am drafting it, I thought it would be a good idea to ask fellow gardeners for specific topic/ sub topic to be covered in it. I am gonna borrow a lot from camaroon123's post on drip irrigation system . Thanks camaroon123.

Fire your questions/suggestions away. also if you want to contribute to this post, you are more than welcome.

Wow! I expected a lot of responses! Perhaps because irrigation is one of my pet grouses. I love my plants. As few as they are, I would be tempted to increase the number of plants, if I could find a way to keep them alive.

As a mom/wife, we take an annual vacation of a maximum of two weeks, can't take more time off from work/school. I don't want a complete irrigation system yet, a drip system per plant would work fine for me. I have spoken with the gardeners in Dubai, and they use an old water bottle with a minute hole to allow water to drip out, it works for a time, but if I do extend my stay away, my babies will suffer. Happened before. So, while I try to find the Phuket style taps for my water bottles, I am hoping to get some good ideas.

Thank you on advance for any fruitful suggestions. (Pun intended)

Hi,

The best idea for drip during long vacation is to use a good drip irrgation timer and set it up once for all. The price might vary depending on where yuo are. In garden guru we sell one for 4500/-

Thank you, it is an option that I will keep in mind as my garden grows in terms of quantity. I am still trying to adapt to growing in the desert heat, so, if I am successful, I will surely expand operations to include a drip irrigation system. Thank you again for the idea.
