Water source for maple
My maple Palmatum ozakazuki has survived me since August, with watering during dry season, but not wet season. The leaves are about to uncurl from the large breaking buds. I want to hook it up to something like a drip line, that would come from a hose downhill, which would have a splitter and a timer. I would want to put the hose at the edges of the rest of the yard, possibly putting a drip line near other plants intermittently, with non drip hoses. I have a picture in the gallery of the planter where the tree is now. Lots of fog in our area, small amounts of hot weather
Question: Is this a good plan? What are good brands for timers, hoses, splitters? Is there a easier way, like a titration apparatus?
