The Allotment Wife

Would love some feedback on garden irrigation.

Gardeners Touch

My garden is large and has a somewhat “unique” shape as sit surrounds a garden shed. It is fenced in and many plants can get crushed when dragging the hose thorughout. I’m trying drip hoses this year because I heard they were better for the mildew problems on the leaves of some plants, but I think the stretch of hose is too long and the pressure not strong enough to reach the final section of hose. I’ve also invested in good tri-pod sprinklers, but that brings me back to the issue with water on the leaves. Standing there for an hour isn’t an option. I’d love to hear about ideas that other gardeners have used.
