Every planting season, gardeners spend time digging, splitting and planting perennials. Using a long-handled garden fork, shovel or spade often means kneeling to work with the plant, standing to use the tool, and kneeling again. It is exhausting work.
Hand forged by a small firm in the Netherlands, these professional-grade tools have 16" T-shaped ash handles that are short enough to wield from a kneeling or seated position, or to dig in raised beds.
Both have tempered stainless-steel heads that are perfectly sized and shaped for getting under bulbs or a mass of roots to pry them out. The well-formed 5" tines on the fork are slightly curved to permit an efficient levering action. The spade has a sharp 5"x5-1/2" flat blade. Each tool is about 22" overall.
Excellent quality. Available individually or as a set.
