Watering hoses and wands

Having a watering system that’s easy to use, convenient, and close by is important. Vinyl or plastic hoses are the cheapest way to go, but if you’re having issues with hoses kinking, use a more expensive rubber hose. They are heavier, but worth it in convenience. Get a hose that’s long enough to reach to all parts of your garden.

It’s also important to get a good watering wand. Watering wands differ from watering nozzles in that they emit a gentle spray of water onto your plants. Some more sophisticated nozzles have multi-spray head options that include a gentle spray option. Use watering wands and the gentle spray option on the nozzle for tender seedlings, small flowers, and young plants.
