I thought before I start planting and and sowing my vegetable plot this season I would investigate irrigation systems.
I don't want to be watering my plot all summer with a watering can/Hose. I have also read that this means i'm also watering all those weeds as well!
Has anyone had any success with underground systems? Research has pointed me in the direction of 'drip irrigation' which seems to me to be planting old milk bottles with holes in around my plot.
Is there anyway of 'planting' a hose underground and then just turning it on and watering say 1 foot below the surface? Also how would root vegetables like/dislike this? Would it cause any rot etc?
