I received this watering can in the Cultivate Box. I can honestly say I thought I was not going to use it, cut to months later it is my favorite watering can! I use it ALL the time, more so than my other watering cans. So cute and easy to carry, great gift and perfect for everyday household use!
It is a nice small but not to small size watering can. Nicely built and very useful for household plants. Not helpful if you have a lot of plants to water at one time but for those dish gardens works very well.
