Want to learn how to grow plants efficiently? Expert Colin McCrate will show you the ins and outs of installing your own drip irrigation system for any size garden. Johanna Silver will then show you how to grow crops in containers. No space is too small for these harvestable crops. You’ll promote healthier plants while saving time, water and money!
Colin McCrate starts the first half of class with a brief introduction to drip irrigation. He'll go over a variety of components, including the backflow preventer, Y-valve, battery-operated timer, pressure regulator and filter, plus the different kinds of header tubing and drip irrigation lines.
Follow along as Colin guides you step by step through setting up the system. He'll address common issues, including how to turn corners and repair lines, and share tricks to help you put it together correctly the first time.
Containers are particularly vulnerable to drying out, and installing drip irrigation makes managing them much simpler. In this lesson, you'll see how to extend your drip irrigation system into container gardens.
