Watering with soaker hose

Zone Spokane, wa | ssmi26 added on April 16, 2016 | Answered

We are using soaker hoses in our vegetable garden. I will do a test to see how long to run the hoses, but my question is: should I run the hoses every day a little or every couple days and run them longer? Last year I ran the hose every day, but only for 15 minutes. Thanks! Sharon
