Irrigation So now you have carefully selected your trees or plants and have visions of fresh fruit dancing in your head. What if you happen to hit a dry summer while trying to establish your mini-orchard? Of course, the large scale producers practically all set up some system of irrigation. But for the average backyard grower this seems like a daunting array of water lines and unfamiliar components. For those of you planting a modest number of trees but aiming to make the most efficient use of both time and water, we offer simple, adaptable and economical start-up irrigation kits. Assuming you already have a garden hose or two, the beginning point is our Base Irrigation Kit. You can add either the Berry Add-on Kit, the Tree Add-on Kit or up to 2 of either or both. For more information, check out our Irrigation Instructions in the catalogue section of our website.

In stock (can be backordered)

Ideal for short rows of closely spaced plants such as raspberries or strawberries which really benefit from regular watering. Contains 100' of Drip-in tubing as well as the fittings you'll need. Includes lay-out and assembly instruction.

1. Using the Black Plastic Stakes, secure the tubing to the ground with blue stripe turned up. Space the stakes at approximately 5’ apart.
2. Go to the end of your Drip-In Tube that you intend to connect to your water source.
3. Pick one Drip-In Tube X Garden Hose Connector.
4. Find the end with a Barb and Nut and turn the nut counter-clockwise against the octagon shaped body.
5. Force the Drip-In Tubing over the exposed barb and into the neck of the nut.
6. When completely inserted, hold Drip-In Tubing firmly in place and thread nut clockwise over top of Drip-In Tubing until tight. If you have two rows of plants, repeat this process on the second line.
7. Find the Drip-In Tube Valves in your kit.
8. Thread any one of the nuts against the main body.
9. Ensure the valve is open.
10. Fasten Drip-In Tube Valves to the far end of Drip-In Tube (both, if you have 2 lines).
11. Fasten one of the outlets on the Garden Hose 2-Way to the Drip-In Tube X Garden Hose Connector.
12. Repeat step 11 if you have two rows.
13. Open the tap on your water source and let your system flush for 30 seconds.
14. Close all Drip-In Tube Valves and your system will pressurize and start irrigating.
