Home-made watering can

home made watering can


A watering can with a spray nozzle is a must at this time of year as you will need a very gentle spray to water your seeds and/or seedlings. Here is how to make one: re-use your milk bottle and make holes on the lid. The picture above shows you my two attempts. The lid on the left is my first attempt which taught me the following:

  • make the holes from the inside of the lid
  • make sure all the holes are the same size otherwise you will not get a regular flow.

The hardest thing I found when using my new watering can was to remember not to unscrew the lid before watering my seed trays!
