So many pretty roses! What a treat to have plenty to cut for bouquets.

Thanks for coming my my blogs. My tomatoes have only one emitter per plant, they're in a row, not teed off the main line. He put a tee in the middle and has 5 plants covered in each direction so it waters 10 plants evenly.

He-who-mows got interested in the irrigation kit I had, ordered off for more and fiddles with them for all the fruits. He's tried different ways to connect them and get the best coverage.

I still prefer the dribblers he made of PVC conduit that will cover a whole bed.

Well from someone who is about to install over 100 emitters I would love to hear more about the T the covers five plant. The manifold is in. It covers six areas, some are uphill....so I would love hear more...did you post anything about it anywhere?

I did not post anything further about the drip kit we used on the tomatoes and fruits.

Our inexpensive kit's instructions said each regulator and line would handle 10-12 emitters. We found more like 8 worked, but used a tee for a line with 5 in each direction on the tomatoes.

If you google installing drip irrigation there are many, many sites that have specific instructions and videos.

You could try putting Y connectors on each manifold outlet so you could have 12 instead of 6 lines.
