    It only rains twice a week in Ireland… once from Sunday to Wednesday and then from Thursday to Saturday.
    Best Wishes, Brendan.

    hey john, i am trying to grow peppers and tomatoes on my terrace using a hydroponic system, can you help me as to how much should i water them on a daily basis ?

  7. niffer58 on November 11, 2019 at 5:37 am

    The triple one i like but one thing about it be very careful with it because it does brake easily not sure how accurate it really is either.

    Great vid John! We’ve been having really hot temps and dry weather for our area. Needing to do a lot of watering right now.

    I have sandy / black dirt that gets hard. when turned over is nice and soft until it get a little hard.What can I do to stop pooling of water after rain spell? the soil is not absorbing water that well.

    I definitely have a crush of John:) And I’ve passed these videos to my friends. Dont know why I havent started growing vegetables until now.

  23. Tiea Shame on November 11, 2019 at 5:57 am

    I looked for the rain nozzle but cannot find it anywhere. What is the name of it please?

  24. OS253 on November 11, 2019 at 5:57 am

    Are you sure? I live in Renton and the sun has been out a lot especially yesterday. I had to whip out my sunglasses when I’m driving on 167 or 405. LOL.

  25. Paige Roberts on November 11, 2019 at 5:57 am

    But, this is my first rodeo doing raised beds – but okay – do you water the plants right after planting?? I’m planting in the heat of the day and I know from past that you are not suppose to water your garden in the heat of the afternoon – but I just planted them are they okay until this evening or should i water them now.

  26. Cynthia Smith-Heiden on November 11, 2019 at 5:58 am

    Could you stop a chronic argument? My husband is not a gardener, but claims if I water my zucchini and cucumbers from above, like rain, that I will wash all the pollen off/out of the blossoms. That I should water from below the plant at ground level. I disagree and get vegetables. What’s your thoughts?

  27. Garth Brooks on November 11, 2019 at 5:58 am

    I let my tap water sit out for days before giving it to plants but they get sick. I was told our tap water sits around 600 ppm. I gotta wonder what is in the tap water. maybe too much calcium? the pH is about 8.5.. and it takes a lot to lower it.

    rain water seems to make them healthy again. im wondering if reverse osmosis is good. anyone use it?

  28. bicanoo_magic on November 11, 2019 at 6:00 am

    Actually dude.. most growers on UT advise NOT to use the rain method and are telling me that you need to water at the roots. ie. water from the bottom. So in a veritable bed such as yours they are coming up with all sorts of deep root watering techniques, as apparently watering from the top for only a few minutes produces shallow roots. (Not sure what the problem is with that). So I was doing what you are doing and it appears its not right!! Apparently watering the leaves creates a greater chance of disease and rot or some such thing. anyway drip feed seems to be the go I’m relay no expert and have no idea if this is just splitting hairs.. sorry if I come across as negative.. maybe you can ‘edumacate’ me!

    spraying the camera guy lol

  30. deepsouthlouisiana on November 11, 2019 at 6:01 am

    thanks John I learn alot from you I feel like you do know alot love to watch your videos thank you so much

  31. WiserWatering on November 11, 2019 at 6:01 am

    Why is simulating rain necessary? The EPA and 50 states recommend drip-line irrigation which doesn’t simulate rain. Everything I’ve read says, "water the root zone". My motto, "Water where it counts, water the root zone".

  32. Occam's Razor on November 11, 2019 at 6:01 am

    The soil might be wet at the 4" of your finger but bone dry down where roots are, of tomatoes for example. Use a meter always. Here is excellent video explaining why fingers should remain in your pocket: https://youtu.be/qhTMUcSc8fU

    what

  34. David Stephens on November 11, 2019 at 6:05 am

    Looks like my plant dies a little more each time I water it

  35. u159411 on November 11, 2019 at 6:05 am

    Thank you so much for the detailed information on watering. I liked how you reviewed all the factors involved with watering properly instead of just saying 1-2 inches of water per week. Loved the introduction to the gadgets out there as well. My favorite part was going over how to figure out how long you have to water by checking 6-12inches down. Great idea and I can’t wait to try it.

    I got a waterstik today after getting 2 failed analogue moister testers.
    I cant see the LED blink in bright overcast weather during the day, I have to cover it with my hand to see it, also the instructions on the depth it should be for the type of plants is really iffy, so cannot recommend this to anyone ever, I’m going to get a better tester off ebay and get a refund for the waterstik. about $10 AUS

  37. Michele Goodsell on November 11, 2019 at 6:06 am

    I soke my plants every three days.

  40. John Hammond on November 11, 2019 at 6:10 am

    Thank you again John. Watering is always a dilemma, especially when we have government water restrictions in a drought.John in Australia.

    Hi John,
    I am from Canada and I am totally in awe of your gardening abilities! I just put in two 4X12X12′ deep raised bed square foot gardens. I’m looking forward to learning a ton from your experience and hope if I have a question perhaps you might find the time to answer to help me get started in my quest to growing my own greens!
