How Often Should You Water Plants In A Polytunnel?

How do you water a polytunnel plant?

How often should you water greenhouse vegetables?

The key to watering successfully is to water thoroughly to a depth of 30cm (1ft). Avoid watering the top centimetre or so on a daily basis, for example. Watering every 10-14 days (if there is no rain) is a general guide. Dig down to a spade's depth to see if there is moisture in the soil; if so watering is unnecessary.
