The world’s oldest manufacturer of watering cans, Haws has chosen the Korapap 235 adhesive from Kommerling UK Ltd to provide an exceptional bond to ensure a watertight seal with good resistance to humidity and weathering.

With a spike in popularity during lockdown, more people are benefiting physically and mentally from home gardening, transforming the industry. Expertly handcrafted and built to last Haw Products are made from its workshop in Smethwick, West Midlands. Haws offers unique indoor and outdoor watering cans, in both metal and plastic with a diverse range of colours and finishes.
