    Default Hortico Makes Best Watering Can

    I'm talking about the green one that costs about $20.

    But what is interesting (to me at least) is that the competition hasn't twigged as to why Hortico is the best, so I'm going to tell them.

    It's not just the sturdy build of the can. I saw one in woollies the other day just as strong and a lot cheaper.

    The factor giving the superior edge is ... the rose. It's holes are mere pinpricks unlike all the others.

    The advantages of this are twofold:

    (1) more gentle flow for plants, particularly seedlings;
    (2) not always running out of water.

    I just can't believe that Hortico maintains its monopoly on the watering can market just because other manufacturers can't make smaller holes! Bizarre!

    Actually Neri I reckon Haws makes the best watering cans.......the problem is that they aren't twenty bucks. More like $170. They are nigh on indestructable though Haws Watering Cans – 4.5litre Long Reach Can

    But you can buy the roses seperately....they are $25.

    Alternatively, the spray wands (and heads) from Dramm are a thing of wonder when it comes to watering.

    Sir, I politely disagree that Haws are the best albeit I've never used one. For a start the Haws Can looks like it wouldn't hold as much water as the mighty Hortico. And ...the Hortico has a place for the rose when you want to take it off and use the spout only. You place the rose, inverted, in the water entry hole. Yes it is clever.

    And I noticed on TV that a lot of the pro gardeners use ... the Hortico!

    My only gripe is the plastic watering cans and buckets are nearly all 9 litres, a pain when calculating dose / water ratio

    I, and Bleeding thumb , once had a thought that holes in a can had some significance in our lives. We quickly grew out of that.
