Watering cans, by now, are icons for the Flea Market Gardener. We search for them when antique and junk shopping and snap them up at yard sales and thrift shop no matter the price. The best is if yours are left you by an older relative and invokes happy memories as a child in a grandparents garden!

Watering cans, vintage or new
With all the options we have for watering our gardens, a watering can in still as useful as ever, for patio plants, fertilizing, gently watering seedlings and when water rationing. Are you a collector? Then you have three to 30 of these versatile garden tools. As FMGer, Joshua Miller says, “Old tools have a history and personality as unique as the people who wielded them. Just think of the stories behind every dent, ding, or scratch. It is the story of our life in the garden.”
