The answer to which watering technique is best really depends on the context in which a garden grows. The types of plants and the stage of their life cycle matters too. Regardless of which method you choose, understanding the act of watering is essential to understanding the garden as a whole.

Connect With Josh McWilliams:

Josh McWilliams is the co-founder of GrowOya. He’s a certified chef with a passion for the farm-to-table movement. Learning about food systems while on the Sustainability Council at the University of British Columbia, led him to want to find the most efficient, sustainable way to grow his own food, while living in a state of "time poverty" (too many things to do and not enough time to do them) that so many of us seem to be experiencing. From this, Growoya was born!
