Watered with Love

This innovative watering can from ceramicists Jo-Anne and Gerald Warren transforms plant watering from a single gush of water into a gentle spring rain. Instead of a spout, it spreads the water pressure out like a shower head through a number of small holes in its base. Fill the vessel by dipping it into water, keeping the water inside by simply placing your thumb over the top opening. You’ll create a vacuum that holds its contents in place until you're holding it over your thirsty flowerbed. Release your thumb and watch the water sprinkle onto your plants. Handmade in Canada.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Beautiful and unique

By 

from Redondo Beach, CA

Comments about UncommonGoods Thumb Waterer:

I purchased this for my mother-in-law, who is an avid gardener. It is true that it is a bit cumbersome and I had to use a sewing needle to open about half of the holes completely. On the other hand, it is so attractive, unique and practical I couldn't pass it up. She seemed to like it, though I have to check back in to see if she is using it.

      • Did Not Function

      Best Uses

        Comments about UncommonGoods Thumb Waterer:

        Only 5 or 6 of the openings worked properly. The others seemed clogged. I tried to unplug them myself, but I couldn't. Also, I expected this to be small and easy to hold, mostly for indoor plants. It was large, heavy, and awkward. The positive is that when I called about returning it, I was told a full refund would be given and I did not need to return the item. Customer service was great!

        Watering Holes aren't punched through...

        By 

        from Littleton, CO

        Comments about UncommonGoods Thumb Waterer:

        Only two of the little holes are punched all the way through so therefore when you do remove your thumb water only flows down that one hole in the middle instead of the 15 or so smaller holes all around it.. *not good*
