Trickle Ring Tree Irrigators
Safeguard your valuable new fruit trees and ornamentals-or water established specimens through a drought. Flexible plastic ring with watering holes has a small gap, so you can slip it around tree trunks as large as 8" diameter.
Use in two ways: holes up to sprinkle a wider circle-or holes down for deep soaking. With holes down, you can cover with landscape cloth and mulch to prevent weeds, while your trees flourish.
12" across, with 1/2" diameter tube, eleven watering holes.
Connect a number of Trickle Rings with standard 5/8" hose and fittings, then adjust the flow of each with standard shutoff valves (not included, but readily available at hardware stores and home centers).

Rings work very well

I have used them before and can see no reason they won't be as useful-but spring isn't here, yet.

Have just tried these out today. Seems to work on the trees I'm deep watering as the water is evenly being dispersed around the tree trunk.
best way to water new trees

I've been using trickle rings for about 5 years. Their pros: they lie flat on the ground (better than hoses) and last for many years, even with very hard water. My only criticism is that they only come in one size, which is best suited to root balls no larger than 5 gallons. I wish that there were larger sizes available so that I could keep using them as the tree grows.

I have used them on two of my trees and LOVE them! My only suggestion is for there to be more holes in them, then they would be perfect!

I ordered 5 Trickle rings for several new plants in my garden and love them! Here on the Island our soil drains very quickly and these are perfect for directing the water where I need it w/o wasting water or my time. When I put more plants in I will be ordering more.

Useful when watering new &/or smaller plants. Wish they came in larger sizes for bigger plants, needing encouragement spreading roots. I own many, & use them all frequently.

Had a watering bag which was convenient as it lasted days before refilling, but the outlet holes often clogged and it was messy to unclog. The tree ring needs to be monitored but it places the water further out from the trunk to encourage root growth outward. Highly recommended!
