A growing flower business is growing in Huntsville

When Amanda Quinn quadrupled her growing flower garden in Randolf County County, she did not want to quadruple her watering time.

Advice on Drop Irrigation Systems Quinn, owner of Bloom: Cut Flower Farm, spoke to Dan Downing, an extension expert at the University of Missouri. Last year, a drop irrigation system was unveiled at a MU extension in a flower garden in La Lata.

In drip irrigation systems, pipes carry plants above the ground or in a slow, consistent stream over the root zone. The system saves water, improves plant growth, reduces drainage and reduces disease, says Dong.

Downing Quinn and her husband Lane helped them choose the right type of system and device. He is also working with them to get rainwater instead of relying on rural water for irrigation.
