    Do you have to water around entire drip line or can you water half the drip line?

    its different if you have clay soil. When you see water building up, depending on your level of clay, you can drown your plants.

    This guy is actually right on. To really water heavy and deep you need to water for about 20-30mins each tree and watering at the drip line for larger trees or around the base for smaller trees. It doesn't hurt if you water a trunk, but think about how long it takes for water to spread horizontally under the ground, it's a very inefficient way tto water. Most trees spread out horizontally as wide as their branches. That's where the new roots are. One of the best things is a one of those sprinklers that you set on the ground that wave back and forth. They don't water heavy enough to create run off but eventually saturate a large area. But again you gotta water for a long time. Trees like a very deep watering, but they don't like water too often. A deep watering once a week is better then drip lines or shallow watering day after day.

    What if you have clay soil? Then how long do you water it for it to get 18-24 inches down?

    You water each fruit tree for 35 minutes. Is there a gage to measure how far down the water has gone after I have completed watering? How do I conserve water and get the job done adequately? Thanks for these garden videos, I am new to this. So far only fruit trees. I do want to start planting vegetables and herbs, organically. There is a lot to learn.
