My trowel arrived very quickly and was well packaged. The trowel is very sturdy and of high quality, and I can see I will be happily using it for years and years to come. Thank you for such excellent service.
Just the loveliest thing - beautiful to look at, lovely to hold, but also extremely efficient and strong. Not cheap, but, with care will last a lifetime and easily copes with my very heavy clay soil. If you do a lot of gardening and/or plant 100's of bulbs every autumn, then this is the tool for you. Fabulous!
As a professional gardener my tools take a bit of a hammering. I've had for Sneeboer short fat trowel for years and it's still going strong but it's a bit wide for planting bulbs or digging out deep rooted weeds. This Great Dixter Trowel is the perfect shape. Slips into the soil really easily. The long blade gets right to the bottom of dock/dandelion roots. The sharpened end is really effective as a mini hoe. The blade is incredibly robust and the unvarnished ash handle feels beautiful in your hand. If you're a serious gardener never hesitate to spend the money on these tools. They are the epitome of form and function.
