PREVIOUS VISITS IN 2023: HAWS WATERING CAN MANUFACTURERS As a change from the usual garden trips, a small number of members thoroughly enjoyed a rather different type of visit to the Haws factory in October 2023. Members were treated to a full tour of the factory with an enthusiastic guide and the owner providing detailed explanations of all of the production processes. Members were able to observe the workers involved in making what are most likely the last hand-made watering cans in the world. A special treat was the opportunity to buy “seconds” in the factory shop.

Established in 1886, Haws is the world’s oldest manufacturer of watering cans, and their products are as enduring as their reputation.

Each of their handcrafted products are unique, as no two cans are identical, yet everyone of them is made to the finest quality by expert craftsmen and women.
