BEST BUY

HAND PRESSURE SPRAYER

Advert

This Gardena hand pressure sprayer has a 1¼ litre capacity. Pressure is built up using the simple pump action handle. It comes with a fully adjustable spray nozzle – ranging from jet to fine mist – and a pressure release valve.

KG VERDICT
This really is a handy sprayer to have in the greenhouse or polytunnel or for indoor plants. It has a good capacity for its purpose – so isn’t too heavy when filled. Comfortable in the hand with an easy pump action, creating sufficient pressure in no time at all. The adjustable nozzle offers a steady, continuous spray with all the range you need for seedlings, young plants and house plants.

KG VERDICT
This sprayer is a quality product, all singing, all dancing. It can be carried on your shoulder or as a knapsack. It has a wide neck for easy fill, a lockable on/off trigger and a transparent dosing cup for adding appropriate chemicals. We particularly liked the weed killer hood for targeted weed killing.

KG VERDICT
If carrying sprayers is a problem for you, this is an excellent solution. We found it very useful on long paths for getting rid of those nuisance weeds that always pop up between the cracks. The 12L bottle offers good capacity and the handles are height adjustable. There’s plenty of length on the lance for getting into those hard to reach areas too.
