Cooler weather brings fall gardening! Here are some great gardening tools for container gardening, harvesting, and fall clean-up.
1. Water Nozzle
When watering containers and hanging baskets, get a water nozzle with a narrow water pattern. It will reduce the chances of overwatering the plant and reduce water waste. Dramm's 170PL Water Breaker® nozzle has 170 holes to create a gentle rain shower. The smaller size of the Water Breaker® nozzle can easily get under fall plants, like mums, to direct water nearest the soil, allowing roots to grow deep.
2. Watering Can
A watering can is great for indoor and outdoor plants. Dramm's 2-Liter, 5-Liter, and 7-Liter watering cans have an extra-long spout design for balance, decreasing water spillage when the watering can is full. You can use the detachable rose to create a gentle rain or remove the rose and use the spout for hard-to-reach areas.
3. Compact Shear
A Compact Shear is ideal for cutting flowers, trimming back plants, and harvesting. Dramm's Compact Shear is made with corrosion-resistant, stainless-steel blades for precise trimming and shaping. It has an ergonomic handle and a blade lock mechanism for safe storage.
4. Bypass Pruner
A bypass pruner will trim branches, shrubs, and brush quickly and cleanly. A handy item for harvesting! The “bypass” name comes from how the cutting blade is designed to fully pass by the cutting edge of the anvil blade. This provides a clean and precise cut without tearing the plant's protective bark. Dramm's Bypass Pro pruner has corrosion-resistant stainless-steel blades, an ergonomic handle, and non-slip grips for a comfortable cut every time.
5. Versatile Spray Nozzle
A multi-purpose, hose-end spray nozzle can water plants and clean the sidewalk. The lever valve style is the best-selling, but the ease of use of the thumb control valve is becoming more popular. Dramm's One Touch Shower & Stream gives you complete and total water flow control with just one touch of your thumb. It has two pattern options: Shower, a cascading flow of fine water droplets that will not harm your plants, and stream, a concentrated jet, powerful enough to wash even the muddiest sidewalks. Great for fall clean-up.
