unwieldy and ineffectual

By AZZenny

from Scottsdale AZ

Verified Reviewer

Comments about : French Blue Watering Can:

The rose is poorly designed, so it sprinkles unevenly with both watering gaps and big dribbles - and then if you tip it farther (not easy, as it's heavy when even half full, bulky, and not especially well balanced) the rose pops off, flooding everything. I ended up just removing the useless sprinkler-rose and just use the can to rinse stuff off -- I can't use it on seedlings or anything delicate, it's just not efficient. Basically, waste of money.

Not worth the high cost

By maelin

Verified Reviewer

Comments about : French Blue Watering Can:

I purchased this years ago and had the same problem as other reviewers of the rosette coming off/not staying on and/or leaking where it attaches. I had to duct tape it on. For the high cost, I expected more. It should be a screw-on. It would also be helpful if the rosette was sold separately.

A really useful item

Comments about : French Blue Watering Can:

We had another of these watering cans years ago which somehow disappeared. We were glad to find another . It works well- because it's large enough and well balanced.

Best can out there

By Kixrix

from PA

Verified Reviewer

Comments about : French Blue Watering Can:

I just purchased 2 blue cans to replace my 30? yr old one that finally bit the dust. This is BY FAR the best can out there for the money for the serious gardener--it holds 3+ gallons (thus eliminating multiple trips to the faucet), is balanced when carrying, pours well, is lighter than English steel ones, has a removable rose, is durable. Excellent value. Was thrilled to see it had been reintroduced to the catalog. I tried to purchase one several years ago (this company is sole supplier in US I believe), only to find it had been discontinued. I wrote the company to beg that they offer it again, if you do a serious internet search about 'best watering cans' this one and the English (expensive) cans come up. I am a fan and I am not easily impressed.

      Watering.

      I have rigged a way to keep the nozzle on. But I should not have had to. Maybe suggest to the manufacture that the nozzle should screw on?

          Comments about : French Blue Watering Can:

          even though the spout doesn't fit tight enough I have 2 of these cans. I love the size and it is light weight so the 3 gallons is not too heavy.

          Disappointed in Durability

          By Sue

          from Hudgins, VA

          Verified Reviewer

          Comments about : French Blue Watering Can:

          I LOVED this watering can! It got plenty of use in its years of service BUT I expected it to last longer. I think I treated it kindly but I did leave it outdoors (in the sun) for days at a time. (I don't believe there were any warnings about sun exposure.) I became concerned a year or so ago when little crazing-like cracks became visible under the surface. I was devasted last year when I picked it up and the sides cracked through. For the price, I expected it to last much longer than the ones I own for a quarter the price that I've actually had longer! It was put away in a garden shed frequently & always throughout the winter. I would love to order another but the cost doesn't seem justified.
