Soaker hose placement
Hello, this is my second year gardening and my first one using soakers for it. I was tired of dragging a hose around or depending on the rain to deliver water every once and a while.
My question is on placement; is it better for the plants to place the soakers right along the base of the plants to deliver water right to them? Or is it better to place them a couple of inches to feet away (like in the walkway) so that the roots have to dig deeper for water and thus build stronger and deeper root systems?
Thanks, your advice is much appreciated!
