5 Gallon Bucket Irrigation and Fertilization Perfect For Drought Areas
In this tutorial you will learn how to both water and fertilize plants in your garden with a 5 gallon bucket. This method is perfect for any areas going through drought. The method concentrates all efforts on one plant at a time instead of a whole area.
The tutorial is from Bucket Irrigation Blogspot. You will see how the 5 gallon bucket is used up close to smaller plants and then how to use his Planet Whizbang bucket-irrigation (and fertigation) hardware kit when you can no longer get the bucket close enough to water only the main roots. He sells the kit minus bucket but is sold out right at this moment.
I know some of our viewers can make their own and when they have more folks that can’t make one can buy then. The blog is full of other useful info to help you get the most from your garden using this method. There are lists of what to use when fertilizing along with a list of plants that respond well to this type of irrigation and fertilization.
I am sure this wouldn’t be a good solution if someone has an acre of garden but for most backyard gardeners and container gardeners this would work very well and avoid water waste by only supplying water to your vegetable plants when each one needs it.
