The Best Watering Wand
on the Market


The best watering wand I’ve used is the Gardena Soft Spray Wand.

Month in and month out, I use my Gardena wand more than any other gardening tool. There's no better way to water freshly seeded beds, or seedlings in the nursery.

It has a fine-mesh screen, so the water fans out into a gentle spray like rain, delicate enough for tiny seedlings in nurseries and seedbeds.

Yet it still delivers plenty of water to thirsty plants.

Every other watering wand I’ve tried—and I’ve tried many—had too hard a spray, and blasted the plants and soil, even when it’s set on “shower”.

Hard watering can injure delicate seedlings, and injured stems and leaves—especially when it’s wet—are an entry point for plant diseases.

Pounding the soil surface with too strong a stream of water also damages soil structure and splashes soil—and disease-causing bacteria and fungal spores—onto the undersides of your vegetable leaves.

In 2011, I consulted for an aquaponics farm that seeded 15,000 lettuce seedlings a week. When I asked how they watered the delicate seedlings in the nursery, the owner showed me a water wand that doubled seedlings over with its spray.

I told him it was too strong, he said "Tell me about it," and pulled out 4 other watering wands he'd bought, and said that was the best of the lot.

I brought my Gardena Soft Spray Wand over the next day for him to try out, and he immediately ordered 2 more of them for the nursery.

I recommend Gardena water wands to all my clients, and every client who's bought one is glad she did.

The Gardena Soft Spray Wand is not only the best watering wand for overhead watering, it’s also durable. I’ve had 3 of them in the last 28 years. They get heavy, daily use much of the year in my California garden.

The first one wore out in 5 years, because I dragged the hose around the garden holding the wand, instead of the end of the hose. The plastic flange at the bottom of the wand wore out, so it wouldn’t stay snapped in the connector.

Water Wand Tip #1

Hold the end of the hose, not the water wand, when dragging the weight of the hose around the garden.

The second one lasted 8 years, and would’ve lasted longer if a propane truck hadn’t run over it.

I’ve had my latest wand for 12 years, including 2 years of abuse in the student garden at Stanford. I had to replace an O-ring in the handle, but the newer designs eliminate this O-ring, so you won’t have to worry about it.




Water Wand Tip #2

Take the wand inside, or unsnap it from the hose and drain it, before winter. If you read a bad review that says "the shaft cracked after the first winter", it's because the user left water in the wand, it froze, and cracked the shaft. This will happen to any water wand left full of water in freezing weather.




The Gardena Soft Spray Wand is simply the best watering wand on the market. It also uses Gardena snap connectors, so you can unsnap the wand and plug the hose into a Gardena sprinkler or any number of Gardena attachments. Gardena connectors are UV resistant and last for years.

I seriously learned how much healthier all my gardens could get just by reading your treatises on soil, pH, and bacterial/fungal symbiosis. Totally changed my world. I barely need to use anything to control pests now, where my gardens needed NEEM almost constantly before your site educated me.--   Khonsu Lunaris
