Do you have to take all your drip tubing up before (real michigan) winter?

Since I love to do experiments, I am setting up an experiment between drip irrigated new blueberry plants, and not irrigated new blueberry plants.

I have never installed drip irrigation, though I have done some reading and watched some youtube. I am getting mixed information about if I have to remove all the tubing here in michigan, every winter, or just all the timers and valves and pressure reducers.

What says the group?

thanks in advance,

troy

In my experience, in a cold climate in Colorado, you do not need to take it all up. I would make sure to drain it. I would make sure that after you drain it, the ends are closed so mice dont climb in. But as long as it is drained and closed, I think you would be okay.
