Description

Discontinued. Price reduced.

Our 38 1/2" long trowel is a variety of gardener's cane. One can stride through the gardens, swinging it casually as one might a cane, but able to stop and unearth the unwanted at will. The best technique is to step the trowel in behind an offender, then lever the handle backward (always one-handed in an elegant manner) to free the root. One then withdraws the trowel (until the point is just below the crown of the plant) and gives the back of the trowel a light toe kick, dislodging the plant completely while displacing little earth.

All this is done in a lord-of-the-manor style, never soiling one's hands or garments and, best of all, never having to stoop. It can be a near-regal action if done with panache. Later, the dislodged plants can be collected with a rake, preferably by some younger person related to the cane owner. This all sounds like it is not work at all, just a sort of carefree weeding walkabout. You will be able to experience it and decide for yourself come spring and ownership of this tool.

Caution: This is a sturdy tool, but it does not have the same strength as a full-sized spade, and should not be used to turn sod or hard-packed earth, and never to pry stones.

A micro-fork is available separately, or with the micro-spade as a set.

Discontinued. On sale to clear remaining inventory; saving is about 40%.
