Get the most from your watering cans

Every home with a garden or with indoor plants needs a well-made watering can. In fact, most people have a larger, more durable watering can for use in the yard, and a smaller watering can for use on the houseplants indoors.

Types of Watering Cans

Watering cans have a few similarities: they all have an opening at the top which allows the can to fill with water; they have a handle which is used to carry the can and to tilt it to pour the water out; and they all have a nozzle or spout which directs the flow of the water out of the can. From this basic functionality, however, there are many variations, including:

  • Herb watering cans, which are quite small and designed to water delicate herb plants in small containers

  • Swiveling-spout watering cans, for space-efficient storage of the watering can
  • Tin watering cans, for those who like a more traditional material and look
  • Whimsical watering cans, which come in novelty shapes like pigs, chickens, cats and other animals
