Use soda pop or water bottles with holes to water plants individually. Saves water and gets the water where you need it.
Tomato plant irrigation using a plastic bottle is such a great idea for the hot Florida climate. I use pots to grow my tomatoes and this will be a wonderful way to water the roots.
tomato plant irrigation : Good idea in theory; but I'd be worried about it leaching chemicals/toxins into the surrounding earth. I wouldn't want that on my tomatoes. If it was safe; I'd think this was a great idea for reusing plastic bottles.
