Every now and then a truly revolutionary gardening tool
comes along. That was the case when an inventor approached us with this
clever weeding tool. Designed to remove the entire root of taproot weeds,
it is ideal for use with dandelions.
It works by creating a high-pressure
stream of water that blasts a hole beside the offending root and makes
the root so loose that it almost swims in a mini sea of mud. To use, just
squeeze the trigger and gently push the wand down into the ground alongside
the root the water drills the hole with little effort. Within moments
the whole weed can be easily plucked out of the ground. As the water soaks
into the ground, the hole fills itself in, leaving a smooth-looking lawn.
It is as simple as that.
The weeder comes with a two-part wand, and can
by half if you prefer to work on your knees instead of standing. Measures
43" overall. A real delight to use.
Also useful for removing or straightening fence posts, or as a fast
and tidy way to make narrow, pre-watered holes for planting small bulbs
such as lilies-of-the-valley or bluebells.
