Tool of the Week - Lightweight Border Fork
The weather has really warmed up this week, and that’s great news for us gardeners. There’s blossom from the cherry trees everywhere you look and the leaves of the hardy shrubs which made it through the winter are starting to show through. I’ve always been a huge fan of herbaceous plants too (those which totally die down to ground level in winter), but never more so than this spring. After that winter cold, it’s great to see them in full vigour, waking up as if to say “what was all the fuss about”
Tool of the week
LITEWORK BORDER FORK - 5994LW
LITEWEIGHT BORDER FORK
This week I’m road testing the new Liteweight border fork. Like the border spade I used last week, its 25% lighter than Spear & Jackson's traditional versions, and its great for my raised borders. Raised beds are so popular now and this fork is a great height and weight for the forking over of the veg beds or for applying a layer of garden compost, which is exactly what I’ve been doing this week.
