I spent part of my garden gift certificate and bought a lovely galvanized steel watering can, or sprinkling can.
My new can is shiny now, and at the plant store they told me it will develop a protective dull patina and last a long time; the clerk still has her grandma's old can and it hasn't even rusted.
Hand watering gets us to focus on the plant and really give it a look-see, vs. automated systems.
Seedlings especially do well with the gentle sprinkling of water, don't you agree?
