The Best of the Must-Haves 2010
Seattle WA (Vocus) February 4, 2010
The U CAN® Watering System was named today at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show as one of the “The Best of the Must-Haves 2010” gardening tools by Joe Lamp’l, founder and CEO of the Joe Gardener® Company. Each year the company selects ten gardening products they believe gardeners should have that are unique and high quality.
The translucent two-gallon capacity watering can conveniently organizes common gardening tasks with an integrated measuring cup and spoon, a place to hold gardening gloves, and a storage post for a removable sprinkler head. The U CAN includes a handy waterproof compartment to store any kind of fertilizer and cleverly reminds the gardener when they last fertilized. It is engineered to evenly distribute weight while carrying, lifting and pouring. Rubber grips and a textured handle allow for better control.
The U CAN’s designation as a gardening “Best of the Must-Haves” is an honor for a product to receive. Mr. Lamp’l will present The U CAN at several home and garden shows across the US this year. More information about Lamp’l’s product certification, company, and schedule can be found at http://www.joegardener.com .
Jim Ugone, president and inventor of The U CAN said, “We are looking forward to a positive impact from this award. It confirms our belief that we have a creative, useful product that gardeners will find both practical and helpful.”
The U CAN is available online and in select independent garden centers. The watering can has received positive feedback from customers, stores and fellow gardeners. As the spring approaches the company expects an increase in demand and interest from merchandisers and consumers.
In addition to The U CAN’s newest recognition, the watering can has been featured in the Phoenix Home and Garden magazine, Dallas Morning News, and the Boston Globe. Shirley Bovshow also interviewed Ugone about The U CAN in her online show, “Garden World Report”, which is also available for viewing on The U CAN Brand company website.
The U CAN Brand LLC was founded in June 2009 by Ugone, to innovate and sell affordable, highly purposeful gardening products of excellence. A graduate of the Stockbridge School of Agriculture and The University of Massachusetts, Ugone also earned a master’s degree in vocational education from the University of New Hampshire. He taught vocational horticulture for nearly ten years before entering the world of finance. He then began his career of providing financial advice to clients primarily in the green industry, and today remains a passionate gardener.
