This spring I installed a soaker hose system in one of my hosta beds as an
experiment. All the materials were purchased at WalMart and as I recall,
were pretty inexpensive. I run the soaker for about 2 hrs once a week
(water "oozes" out the sides) and that bed has never looked better. The
hose itself is buried under about 2" of mulch. WalMart also has a free
booklet describing the system.

The only problem is that the fittings sell out very quickly in the spring.
Next year I plan on outfitting another bed if I can get everything I need
early on.
