long-handled-stainless-steel-bulb-planter £49.99
One of the best and toughest bulb planters we have found it cuts a clean planting hole and removes the soil plug ready for dropping the bulb in to the hole. The bulb planter has a generous 7cm diameter, so is ideal for planting all sized bulbs and even has a handy depth guide on it too. The planter head and socket is made from stainless steel with an ash handle, and the entire planter measures 1m tall. Easy to use and great for even the toughest of soils.

haws-professional-longreach-watering-can £44.99
This is a top quality bit of kit. It is made from heavy gauge steel and has a hot dip galvanised zinc coating with a red colour finish, which will resist rust. It comes with a detachable, oval brass rose, which is fine enough to water seedlings without damaging them and the filter at the base of the spout will stop it getting clogged up. The long, angled neck makes it easy to direct the water exactly where you want it and it will also help prevent accidental spills. It has a 3.5lt capacity and when full is well balanced, so is easy to carry, especially when holding it with both the handles. Ideal for the gardener who wants the very best – it should last around 20 years or more.
vegetable-rack £39.99
This is how they stored the vegetables in the good, old days. And with good reason too: the slatted shelves allow the air to circulate and stop the produce ‘sweating’, keeping it fresher for longer. Still seen in corner shops today, our rack is really useful for onions, potatoes and all of those other vegetables that you cannot fit in the fridge!Dimensions: 61cm High

Simple weeder that removes the entire root. Screw into soil and remove root.The perfect weeder for tap root weeds such as dandelions and docks, in lawns or borders.Extract weeds entirely and with ease.Every De Wit garden tool is handmade in Holland; hand-forged from solid, top quality steel, shaped, sharpened and finally fitted with an oiled, solid ash wood handle of the finest quality.The Dutch are rightly regarded as makers of the finest gardening tools. The two best are Sneeboer and de Wit. Sneeboer were founded in 1913, but De Wit dates back to1898. The 4th generation of De Wits now run the business; one is a trained wood turner, the other trained as a blacksmith. Both Sneeboer and De Wit use traditional techniques, but different materials. Sneeboer use stainless steel and de Wit use carbon steel. Carbon Steel is naturally tougher than Stainless steel and is not prone to metal fatigue like Stainless Steel.De Wit burnish their steel. This not only helps to protect it for longer but gives it a patina that blackens it – just like traditional English tools from the Edwardian era.All De Wit tools have turned hardwood handles of oiled Ash. Ash is not only very strong but resists shock better than woods like oak or beech, which is why it is always used for Axe handles.The result is a beautiful tool to hold in the hand but rugged and durable.They feel so natural to use that they are like an extension of theperson that uses them. These tools will give you a lifetime of use, until you hand them on.
