There is a long tradition of improving the quality of water by bringing it into contact with copper. We have been told that in India, drinking water is stored in copper vessels. And for the same reason, we put odd bits of copper pipe in our water butt, to help keep the water sweet.
Which means that, as well as looking wonderful in your conservatory or greenhouse or on your windowsill, this copper watering can will benefit your plants when you water them. The long narrow spout allows for careful watering of houseplants, and the fine brass rose gives a delicate mist for seedlings and tender young plants.
