According to the book I'm reading.....
Light continous intervals rather than a couple of heavy waterings.
They can log water, and develop disease...yes.
If you're planning a system, then 3 times through spring
and ramp up to 5-6 times in the heat of summer. The duration
time the watering stays on will be according to your soil retention/drainage.
hope that helps.....
I'm planting around 65 myself.
What's your trellis design? Classic V, vertical ?
