Draper 5l Expert Garden Sprayer.
A wonderful piece of kit, sixteen inches tall without the handle, and holding five gallons of whatever you want. There are of course certain types of fluid you can't use in this, like for example solvents, this sprayer is for all your garden spraying requirements, everything from water, to herbicides and pesticides, insecticides and fungicides, de-icer and solvent-free preservative treatments. You can also spray used washing up water of course. Made from plastic, there are no corrosion problems, and as long as it is stored correctly especially over the Winter period, it should last for many years.
I am not advocating the use of some wildspread mass extermination with "Agent Orange", but the use of some metered amounts of a certain treatment, must be considered. I like the idea of "organic" gardening, but to lose an average of 50% of your crop just convinces me there is a need for chemicals.
This is one of the easiest sprayers I have used, it is simple in operation, just pump the handle to pressurise it, then squeeze the trigger for complete control, you can also adjust the spray pattern just as easily. The whole thing is light enough to carry around the garden, and the pump is very easy to operate.
The cheapest I have seen is £20. This was online, so you must bear in mind the cost of postage and packing, or more properly the cost they will charge you, which can be a lot more.

If you have difficulty obtaining one the Draper Catalogue Number is 79988. The fact that spares are readily available, makes obtaining one of these as a car boot bargain even more attractive.
The Draper company make too many tools to mention, from garage tools to garden tools and a lot more besides. I recommend them all. Take care in your garden, and it will become a pleasure, not a chore.
