Well, the first one we're going to explain is the soaker hose. This is a porous hose that has thousands and thousands of little tiny holes, in the rubber, very rugged piece of hose. You can get them with fittings already attached or you can put a fitting, hose repair kit on. This is nice for slow delivery of water over a long period of time. The advantage of this too, is you can bury it under the surface of the soil and the plant will stay dry and the ground will get wet, it'll soak in nice and deep.
