Watering Wisdom

Watering cans with wide spouts can make it hard to hit small targets such as pots or the base of plants. To improve his aim, Club member Duane Berns of Belgrade, Minnesota, replaced the head of his watering can with a threaded 90-degree lawn sprinkler fitting (the type that usually connects the sprinkler head to the water line). The 90-degree spout not only directs water at the plant’s roots but also makes filling hanging baskets or adding water to a Christmas tree stand less messy.
