Tool of the Week - Lightweight Dutch Hoe
This week I’m testing the dutch hoe, again from the family of the new Litework range. Its lightweight and has a great, smooth shaft, making hoeing a real pleasure. 25% lighter than their traditional versions, and very easy to negotiate carefully around those tender new shoots, this hoe glides through the soil with ease.

I see lots of people using the hoe incorrectly, ‘digging’ around in the soil, and so its one of those tools that because people don’t really know how to use, it gets abandoned in the corner of the shed. Stop! That’s a huge mistake. If hoeing is done reguraly and on a warm, dry day, it can save hours and hours of weeding later on in the year. By digging the soil with the hoe, you’ll simply be bringing the weed seedlings to the surface of the soil … perfect ... if you’re a weed seed!
