Subject: What garden hose are you using? Replies: 28
Posted By: vito12831 Views: 323
 
Hi Dave
I use the regular old heavy hoses from sears (guaranteed for life), but my wife has both the pocket hose (for around the patio) and two Zero G hoses. She has had the pocket hose for two years now, but initially had to replace it three times because it exploded. The way she uses it solves the exploding problem. She has a spray nozzle on the end, but NEVER closes it completely, so no pressure builds up in the hose. When shutting the hose off she moves the sprayer setting to mist, so that when the hose is turned back the pressure does not build up. The hose is merely a conduit for water. It has worked fine for two years. She likes it because it's so lightweight. She also likes the Zero G and when the pocket hose does go, she will replace it with that.

I thought of using those containers for frost protection in the spring for my tomatoes.
Good Idea.

Hi all.
I just wanted to ad, in the container method make sure the container is well secured because it will easily spin and break the roots.

Great looking brebas,I only had one breba this year, I had a lot of brebas on my Fracazzana rosso and one by one they all dropped. Your Capela Azores looks like my long D'Aout.do you think it could be the same?

Hi Paul.
It was my first time there, although I've passed it hundreds of times.
I was also surprised because there was no branches on the plant, I can't imagine they would cut all the branches and throw them away.

I went to Valoze'S nursery a couple of days ago, and to save everyone time, there will knot be any rooted cuttings, I spoke with who I think is the owner and said it's very hard to root,he would get two cuttings out of ten to root so he didn't root any this year. The mother tree is a trunk about eight inches round four feet tall with a big nob on top without any branches, he was kind and busy and cut me four tiny little cuttings about two inches long with a couple of leaves on them.
He said he will have figs trees for sale, not the Valoze's.
