Should Soaker Hose Be Placed In Middle Of Vegetable Garden Bed And What Hose To Buy

Question From: N. Black - Charleston, South Carolina, United States
Q: We are going to start a vegetable garden from seeds. our planting area is 1ft x 35ft. one straight line. The surface is flat, that is no slopes or hills. Should we run the soaker hose trough the middle of the bed, or off to one of the sides. Thanks !

A: Best to run it through the middle of the bed. Buy the best quality hose you can find, such as the Fiskars brand. Because of the quality of the materials and the method of manufacturing they work the best and last the longest. Sometimes cheaper is not worth what you pay for it. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
