The Q&A Archives: Soaker Hose Set-up

Question: I have set out a soaker hose in my annual/perennial bed and don't know what to do at the end of the hose. Should it just be left as is or does it need a bubbler or some other kind of adapter on the end that is not connected to anything?

Answer: I really like soaker hoses--they allow a long, slow, deep application of water, which is excellent for plants. I'm not sure from your question what you have currently have at the end of your soaker. I buy lengths of soaker hose and cut what I need, so I'm assuming that your hose is just open at the end. I put a tiny plastic plug at the end of mine. You can buy these for a few cents. If you have further questions, please feel free to write again. Good luck!
