I bought a 0.7 litre plastic Haws indoor watering can just over a year ago when ordering from an online gardening site and noticed they were offered at a reduced price. I already owned an indoor watering can but found it quite bulky and the short pouring spout rather awkward at times when trying to water around the base of large leafy plants. I ordered a Haws watering can in the deep red colour and it came with a little brass face rose.
On first inspection I was delighted with the quality of this watering can, the plastic is very thick and robust and there is a high standard of moulding, no rough seams or highly apparent lines etc. The overall design is well balanced in my view. I find the handle positioned perfectly to hold both whilst filling the can with water from the tap and when tipping forward into plant pots. The curved shape of the handle and width of 2cm extremely comfortable. Although the plastic is heavy duty the watering can is very light, when filled with water it weighs 800g.
A Haws logo embossed on the front of the can adds a rather nice touch I think. The brass face rose fits simply and securely onto the tip of the spout and waters beautifully but I hardly use this and it remains clipped into the storage position on the spout support bar. The length of the narrow pouring spout is 17cm which I have discovered is ideal for carefully and accurately pouring into pots of all sizes around the home. Water flows excellently and can be controlled easily.
I feel confident this watering can will last for a very long time. On the Haws website this watering can is given a life expectancy figure of 10 years. It is possible if stored in direct sunlight the plastic may discolour over time but I have found no evidence of this as yet.
Colours available are navy, cerise, black, green, yellow, lilac, pink, deep red, silver and pale blue.
I've been so impressed, I bought a yellow one as a gift for my Mum who has a home brimming with house plants and she has been equally pleased with the performance of this little watering can.
Available from the Haws website at £4.99. Well worth the price in my view and highly recommended.
