Sophie Conran Potting Sieve -

Sophie Conran Potting Sieve – £16.95
The Sophie Conran Potting Sieve is a small but perfectly formed addition to the famous home and garden designer’s range of garden tools and equipment and will sieve soil gently over seeds post-planting. Here’s what Sophie herself had to say about the potting sieve; I believe in having the right tools for the job. That’s why I have designed this little potting sieve. It is just the right size for sprinkling fine compost over my seeds (and not all over my potting bench) giving them the best start.”The handle of this attractive pot-sized sieve is made from waxed FSC beech wood; there’s a brass ferrule keeping everything in place and the 10cm diameter sieving head complete with 5cm wide apertures ensures an even spread of fine compost. As with the Sophie Conran dibber the 24.5cm long potting sieve is beautifully presented in the finest quality hinged lid presentation box complete with magnetic closure and comes complete with a 5 year guarantee.”

Sophie Conran Dibber -

Sophie Conran Dibber – £14.95
Exquisitely designed by the leading cook kitchen and homeware designer this Sophie Conran Dibber is a beautiful yet practical addition to your gardening stock and makes an ideal gift for the gardener in your life. Manufactured from FSC beech wood with solid brass ferrules and a mirror polished stainless steel body it’s hardly surprising that the dibber carries a five year guarantee and will cope with making holes for planting seeds bulbs and seedlings even in grass or harder soils. Maintenance is simple; the Sophie Conran dibber requires a quick wipe after use to keep it in perfect condition but it’s the finishing touches which really sets this dibber apart from garden rivals – it’s supplied in the finest quality hinged lid presentation box with a magnetic closure making it a perfect gift. Ideally proportioned at 29cm long by 7cm wide and 5cm deep the Sophie Conran dibber is just made for the female gardener!

Hole Former -

Hole Former – £6.45
Use the extremely useful no-nonsense Hole Former to create pilot holes for both our and below ground models of our in stony rock hard soil. The stubborn 3.25mm gauge steel bar defies all sorts of unfavourable soil conditions – stones flint brick builders’ debris and heavily compacted ground – to heroically create the perfect holes for arch and fruit cage uprights and will withstand heavy and prolonged hammering from a mallet or sledge hammer. The 25.4mm diameter by 800mm long steel home former can also be used when installing if the conditions prove too tough to drive in directly.
