I am looking for a watering can to water soil blocks in a greenhouse. Everything at the hardware store is total junk. I had a very old galvanized can that worked okay, but my father-in-law (who probably needs his license revoked) ran it over with the riding mower. The water cam out a little too fast anyway. I've seen Elliot Coleman using a watering can that directs the water up like a shower, but can't seem to find one. That style would be ideal. Any recommendations?
Gallon milk jugs. Drill a couple air holes in the bend of the handle, and then several water holes in the shoulder opposite the handle. The smaller you make the holes, the finer the shower of droplets that will come out. Something like 3/32" or 1/16" works quite well and can give the light shower you are looking for.
At least this junk is free junk, so no prob if it wanders under the lawn mower.
