How Long To Keep Soaker Hoses On For Cryptomeria And Arborvitae

Question From: Elizabethton, Tennessee, United States
Q: I have Cryptomeria trees and Emerald Green Arborvitaes that are four to ten feet tall. My soaker hose winds around each tree. How long should I keep the water on to ensure the tree roots get enough water?

A: I can't answer that. Depends on many things, such as the length of the soaker hose, the quality of the soaker hose and the water pressure, which probably varies during the day. The amount may vary from tree to tree. Some trees may need more than others. Here's a website that might be helpful. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
