We've had several quite hot dry days now and it's time to get the irrigation system up and running. After experimenting with a couple of different kinds of drip irrigation over the years we have found that T-tape
works best for our situation. We pump irrigation water out of our pond for most of the season and even though we run it through a filter we get algae growth in the tapes. This system clogs less than others we have tried. The pictures above shows asters, godetias and carnations getting their first drink.
