All of my produce stock is field grow. But I am gradually moving to containers for seed stock. Went away last weekend without watering, things were way droopy when I got back. Five gallon containers, but they are black and suck up the sun. Thinking about drip irrigation for next year, but have no clue what to consider.
I do not want them to run off the house because that is county water. Thinking more like 50 gallon drum higher than the containers, so gravity feeds the system. I have seen drip that uses a computer on the hose outlet, turns it on and off. Thinking just gravity feed and slow drip would work better. But again, I have no clue.
If you do drip and can point me to a product, maybe at GreenHouseMegaStore (favorite place) that would be very helpful. Even knowing if I can gravity feed vs. computer would be great. Does it have to turn on and off or can it just drip slowly?
