Galvanized long spout watering can

Watering cans are ideal for using in the garden, at home and in the conservatory. The first metal watering cans appeared in the late17th century after Lord Timothy George wrote the term watering can in his garden diary in 1692. The long spout on this watering can made it easier for tending to plants in hard to reach places such as hanging baskets and window boxes.
