Tool of the Week - Lightweight Soil Rake
Over the past week I’ve been seed sowing in earnest. Herbs, flowers and vegetables have all been on my hit list. I sowed a drift of cottage garden favourites’, Larkspur a couple of weeks ago in the front border, and when it comes through I’ll thin it out to about 25cm between plants.
I have also sown some basil, parsley and lettuce, as well as parsnips, carrots, beetroot, rocket and fast maturing turnips. I know it’s only a small garden, but one row of each will give me variety and a taste of something home-grown.
Even if you don’t have a garden, don’t worry as I’ll be sowing veg in pots too in a few weeks time.
Tool of the week
LITEWORK SOIL RAKE - 5145LW
LITEWEIGHT SOIL RAKE
This week I’m putting the new Litework soil rake to good use, by using it to level out the freshly dug borders. Many people use the soil rake for moving soil around the bed, but actually a rake is a levelling tool, and should be used to create an even surface normally for seed sowing, be that grass, flower or vegetable.
