Irrigation system in large containers

Zone Denver CO | Anonymous added on June 2, 2016 | Answered

We moved into a house with 3 large galvanized containers on a deck. There is a home irrigation system with 4 or 5 thin hoses in each container. I planted 2 tomatoes plants in one, 2 pepper plants in another and some spinach and mint in the third. I'm not sure how much time each day to leave the water on. I'm a total novice with vegetable gardening. Thanks for the help! Leslie

Since the plants are in a container, I would recommend once a day watering with the system. You will have to experiment with the amount of time though, as the type of drip nozzle and your outdoor conditions will influence how long you should water. I would say start out with 5 minutes and adjust from there.
