This is a watering tool but have heard that before. The top is like the old sprinkler tops our moms' might have had on an old glass soda bottle for sprinkling on the ironing. Thanks for reminding me, I need to go to a medical supply place.
jlp222, do you mean walmarts has the inhalers or has the waterers? and Dixiehil, when did you get that from Park seed? I think I checked with them and they don't have them now. They do have some tiny things for sucking up tiny seeds one at a time but not the waterer, unless I'm mistaken. Did you get it recently?
Thanks for helping, both of you!
Plnts, I want one, too. I have one, but the screen came away from the nozzle, so it doesn't work -- from 1982-ish, Park's. :)
Have you seen the cheap imitators at T&M? They fit on a 2 litre bottle, like Coke. I bought a set and was soooo excited, except we don't drink soda in 2 litre bottles, and the bottles sort of collapse as you use them from the vacuum. HOWEVER, once you get the hang of it, figure out a source to keep replacing the bottles, they are actually pretty handy and work well. The 2 litre bottles hold a lot more liquid than the original rubber bulb sprayers, so you don't have to stop for refills as often.
Penne, It's really good for seedlings that come up as an entire Chia Pet (really close together). I have some pots where the seedlings are sooo thick and sooo dense, they have displaced the top layer of soilless mix in the pot. They are tiny seedlings, so I can't go in with fingers or any kind of implement - a stir stick, for example. A sprayer doesn't move enough soilless mix, but these bulb sprayers do. I don't think it's enough of a reason to go out and buy one, but they really do come in handy.
I got one from Lee Valley Tools. It came with two different sprayers, one like pictured and one with a clear rigid, angled tube from bulb to sprayer, about 4 inches long. They have an amazing gardening catalog. See the hyperlink above.
Hello I have two of those green bulb sprayers. One from the sixtes. I ordered it fromthe 1968 RHShumways seedman catalog for $1.75 . It came with two spray heads a bent alunminun pipe and green rubber bulb. I also bought another one in the eightes from the same place . I called them a few months ago to order another one but they do not know what I am talking about. The two I have are getting hard. I put armor all on them every so often.
They are cracked but still hold water.It was called CENTROSPRAY. I still have the 1968 catalog. Thank you for your time. And where I can get a new one... Craig
