Getting ready for next year’s growing season can go beyond what vegetables and flowers to plant and on to shopping for cool new garden implements.
Among the new arrivals is Colapz, a combination bucket and watering can by Colour Wave.
Colapz comes in three iterations – a 2.6-gallon bucket, a 2.4-gallon watering can and a 1.8-gallon bucket/watering can combo. Each space-saving version can be collapsed to about 3 inches.
The UV-resistant and frost-proof containers, made of recycled plastic, come in seven colors. There’s a splash guard and end cap for when it’s a bucket. Also, the nozzle and other components can be stored in the base. There’s a water-level indicator on the side, and a loop on top facilitates hanging the Colapz in the garage or garden shed. $28 at
