Want to put drip/mist line along patio cover for fuchsias - help!

I would love any tips regarding running a drip line along the perimeter of my patio cover. I will be hanging probably a dozen fuchsias from it and need a good watering and mist system. Thanks in advance for any and all information you can share.

RE: Want to put drip/mist line along patio cover for fuchsias - h

With all of the new watering heads out there now this should be fairly easy. Almost 20 years ago I built an arbor, 25 feet long by 15 feet wide out of 2x8s. I had installed a sprinkling system in my lawn and flower beds so I just included one line on a valve and put PVC on top of the arbor and installed misting heads. They came on twice a day. I can't remember exactly how long.

The fuchsias loved it. So did I. They were beautiful.
