    Is this method a good alternative to PVC and drip Irrigation? I'll do some research but it sounds interesting.

      Absolutely - buried clay pot irrigation for example uses terra cotta. Not plastic. And less water even than drip.

    Buried clay pot irrigation was first described in a Chinese ag extension book in about 100 BC. The author was writing for land poor small farmers who needed to increase yield with less water and less land.
    It works so well every permie should know about it. Wick irrigation came from India - it is low cost and fabulous in the field.
