Whether you have an indoor garden, you're nurturing seedlings, or some of your outdoor plants need a little extra TLC, a watering can is a must-have for every gardener. Although it may seem like a simple item, there are a few elements you need to consider before choosing the perfect one. Water is heavy, so a large watering can may be too hard to handle. You will want one that has a comfortable grip, a long reach, and a large fill hole. Additionally, a removable rose (the shower-like attachment) is important for flexibility. Plastic or galvanized steel are your most durable options, but if the look is important, go for the whimsy – anything that makes a chore more fun is a good thing.
