Posted By  | On 0 Comments

CASSVILLE, Mo. — Are you ready to put away the watering can? Tired of dragging hoses around to water thirsty plants?

Bill Greet, Master Gardener of the Ozarks member and volunteer, will discuss the option of installing a drip irrigation system in your home garden. The above-ground hose and emitters are inexpensive and easy to install and can reduce your time in the garden significantly.

Drip irrigation can be an inexpensive do-it-yourself system for the home gardener, or applied on a massive scale.
