When you are setting up an irrigation system for your plants, whether they are vegetables, low fruit such as strawberries, or flowers, you need equipment that will give them water and nutrients in a controlled manner. You could just spray everything with a hose but often that doesn't penetrate the ground if it's been very dry and, if it's been very hot, you could cause leaf burn to your crops. Using a drip line means you can control the amount of water your plants get and ensure that they get the appropriate amount of moisture to help them grow and flourish. You can use dripper stakes to organise your drip lines. These C shaped dripper stakes have been designed to be used with drippers that have shut-off caps and are an effective way of helping to give you control over the amount of water your plants are given.
