Flower Baskets and Automated Drip Irrigation Makes Flowers Bloom Longer! [PHOTOS]

This year marks an awakening where I discovered how long-term beauty can be achieved by flower baskets equipped with automated drip irrigation systems.

Even highly sophisticated filtering systems make it questionable to have long-term reliability using irrigation water. It’s possible that I wasn’t as vigilant as I should have been or perhaps a dual or triple filter system would have been more reliable.

Next year, barring a multi-filter epiphany, I’ll give tap water a try.

Remember, drip systems utilize sprayers & drippers that have small tubes and openings which can clog on very small objects that populate irrigation water.

These baskets and pots lasted for months this season and only started to fail when the system got clogged. I did a story on some blazing orange lilys that were astounding but which lasted just a few weeks.

These flowers kept the backyard colorful for a long time!
