The Gold Standard!

We're pleased to announce that we have carried off the Gold award in two categories in the 2022 Great British Growing Awards. The awards are held annually in conjunction with Grow Your Own Magazine and the results are 100% based on the votes of the readers who use the tools every day. Our Neverbend Professional Digging Fork was voted the best tool in the Digging Tools category. It's a sturdy tool for serious digging. Made from solid forged Carbon Steel it has a long, lipped socket, riveted for extra strength with a hammer-finish powder coated head that provides improved resistance to rust, scratches, humidity and alkalis in the soil. The shaft is made from durable, weather-proofed hardwood and has an MYD handle. 

Our second Gold was for our Kew Gardens Collection Telescopic Bypass Loppers which beat stiff competition and was voted the best in the Pruning Tools category. Bypass Loppers are ideal for cutting live or green wood, and this pair has a dual compound cutting mechanism that gives extra power for pruning thicker branches. The Telescopic handles extend from 670mm to 1000mm for reaching up to cut higher growth.

This year's successes in the Great British Growing Awards continues the winning tradition which has seen Spear & Jackson consistently achieving Gold for several years reinforcing our reputation as 'The Tools to trust'
