When we bought the new house a couple of years ago, it comes with a nice size garden. The previous owners weren't very enthusiastic about gardening, so when we moved in the garden is just filled with plain grass. Over the years, we started planting small tress and herb plants in the garden, and with that comes the need for a watering can to keep the plants healthy and alive. From where we live, there's a massive gardening centre about 10 minutes drive away and we tend to frequent that gardening centre for all the essentials. This Haws Heritage watering can is one of several gardening accessories we bought from there.
This Haws Heritage watering can has 1 litre capacity, which is sufficient to fill it and carry it around comfortably without straining my shoulder and arm muscles. We bought the can for £6.00, which is a fair price for a watering can. The only complaint is that since this can is made of plastic, it should be retailed for a lot lower price. However, I did some research online and these Haws Heritage watering cans are sold for around £8 - £10 pounds depending on where you purchase it from.
These Haws Heritage watering cans come in a variety of colours: the one we purchased was a lilac coloured one.. The watering can has a simple lattice pattern on the side, as shown in the picture above, and is very light to carry. They come with a round brass rose for even and widespread distribution of water. The watering can has two sprout lengths: one short and one long for ease of use. I use the long sprout when I'm watering out in the garden and the short sprout for indoor plants to avoid water spills on the carpet.
Since we only have few flowering plants and various herbs, a couple of trip with this watering can is enough to cover the garden plants. However, I'd imagine that the 1 litre capacity might be insufficient for large gardens. We've had this for more than a year and we've had no problems what so ever with using this product.
Overall, it is a good watering can for small gardens. I still think the price is a bit high considering this is made of plastic; albeit the plastic is of good quality and the product finishing is durable and reliable. I would recommend this watering can if you don't mind spending a bit more for a simple accessory such as a watering can. It looks quite nice and it comes in various colours to compensate for the price tag attached to them. To be fair, I'm sure pound shops sell cheap watering cans that does the same job, but probably less aesthetically pleasing.
Thank you for reading and reviewing :) x
My mum has used one of these watering cans for several years to water indoor plants and when I moved into my own home she bought me one to use too.
The Haws Heritage Watering Can didn't come with any type of packaging, they were simply stacked on a carousel type display in a local garden centre. The can comes in several colours including dark and pale green, lilac, pink, red, grey, light and dark blue and yellow so something to suit most people especially if like me you like everything colour co-ordinated. I chose the lilac can as it went with my colour scheme.
The Haws Heritage Watering Can is a small traditional style plastic watering can which will hold 1 litre of water. The can measures approximately 34 cm's round and is 20 cm's high, it had a little spout which measures 18 cm's and this has a small copper rose on the end which had a diameter of approximately 4.5 cm's.
It has a thin rounded handle and also a little spout to put the rose on if you want to water without it, the rose just pushes on here and doesn't interfere with the water flow. The can also has a carrying handle on the top.
The watering can, as I mentioned, is made from plastic which feels really strong, you cant bend it at all its very sturdy. The watering can has a plastic diamond shape moulded into it along with the Haws logo.
I use this watering can with or without the sprinkler rose on the spout, with the rose on the can sends out a nice gentle spray which is ideal for delicate plants and seedlings which we currently have a lot of, the fine spray doesn't beat the seedlings down and it doesn't allow the compost to become too waterlogged.
I use the can without the rose if I'm watering my more established plants, it does the job quicker and directs the water straight to the compost where its most needed.
The can is nicely made and when full the water doesn't flop over the top when you tilt it to use it.
My Haws Heritage Watering Can came from a local garden centre but they are also available online from places like Amazon. My watering can cost £5. 50 when my mum bought it but they are now around the £8.00 mark give or take a few pence.
The Haws Heritage Watering Can would also be ideal for children to "help" with the watering, and coming in many bright colours would appeal to them.
If you use a small watering can for indoor plants I would definitely recommend this, I've had mine for 4 years and its still as good as new.
My three year old little girl loves to garden and its really sweet watching her taking care of her plants and wanting to check on them and make sure they are growing properly. One of the things we bought her last year to do this was her own watering can so she could be in charge of watering her own plants that she has planted.
My husband found her this Haws heritage watering can from our local garden centre and she absolutely loves it. I think it partly has to do with the fact that it is pink but also because its the perfect size for her and so she can easily carry it and water with it.
The watering can is plastic and is really quite light so its easy for her to pick up and tip, even when it is full with water. The watering can has a classic watering can look to it. There is a handle on the side and also a handle at the top so you can hold it the traditional way, grab onto the handle on the side with one hand and then hold the top handle with your other hand so you can tip the spout up and pour.
The spout is quite long and reaches a little way out from the can which is good because when my little boy tries to water the garden he usually ends up trying to water his feet instead but with the longish spout it just misses him!! There is a removable nozzle on the end of the spout which has lots of holes in it which spreads out the water and enables you to water all around your plant and wet the surrounding ground rather than just targeting one specific area. This nozzle can also be moved to a smaller little spout closer to the container as well.
The watering can holds just 1 litre of water so this is never going to be a watering can that you can do your whole garden with. I end up having to fill this up quite a few times to do all of our beds but that is more bcause my little girl loves to water and wants to keep on doing it so if you are looking for a watering can that is going to be hard working this is probably not the one for you but in terms of a little one that children can use to help you in the garden and learn the joy of being outside and growing things then this is perfect.
