Irrigation is essential for growing healthy annual vegetables, herbs, and flowers. In this webinar, we’ll learn about different ways to water your garden with a special focus on how to successfully install, maintain, and manage a drip irrigation system. Drip irrigation systems are a simple and effective way to help home gardeners better manage and conserve water. After viewing this webinar, you’ll have the information and resources you need to set up your own drip irrigation system at home.
Registration is required and a $5 or $10 donation is optional. Register on the event webpage to attend live or receive a link to the recording. This session is the last in a six-part spring webinar series to be offered every other Wednesday through June for Granite State and Pine State gardeners.
