I have a dark secret.
I am a plant killer.
I am a great fan of gardening, but I am afraid I have killed a lot of plants in my time.
And they all died in the same manner.
Death by dehydration.
In Seattle, lack of water in the garden is only really a dilemma during July, August and part of September. I have never installed a sprinkler or drip irrigation system in our garden. And as a result, I have killed quite a few plants during quite a few summers. But no more. I now have what it takes to keep my garden verdant during the summer. I have Dramm!
Dramm makes everything you need to keep your plants happy and healthy. Dramm is located in Manitowoc, Wisconsin. John G. Dramm started the Dramm Corporation in 1945. John G. Dramm was a florist and decided to invent the florist’s “better mousetrap”; a nozzle able to apply very large quantities of water to greenhouse plants in a soft stream. This “better mousetrap” became the 400 Water Breaker, a nozzle still used by commercial flower growers worldwide. Mr. Dramm’s story is inspirational yet quintessentially American. He kept his day job working as a florist but developed his new business in his “spare time”, filling the 400 Water Breaker orders at night. Sadly, Mr. Dramm died suddenly in 1951. But Dramm lived on.
Mr. Dramm’s wife Perdita and his two boys kept the business alive. And Dramm remains a family business to this day, with several members of the Dramm family currently at the helm. And the Dramm family is still making wonderful watering products in Manitowoc, Wisconsin. My favorite Dramm products are the Sunrise Rain Wands (available in six rainbow colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and berry),
And now the best news. You can win a Dramm Sunrise Rain Wand or a Dramm watering can just by sending me a comment to this post that includes a couple of pieces of required information. First, what is the favorite plant in your garden? Second, what American products have you purchased in the last six months? I have two Sunrise Rain Wands and two Dramm watering cans. Let me know if you want a wand or a watering can. I will try to give you your choice, depending on the choices of those who commented before you.
With my Dramm Sunrise Rain Wand, the plants in my garden can breathe a sigh of relief. With my Dramm wand, this summer my garden will look like this,
