No more stabbed spuds with the Potato Harvesting Scoop, a modern day take on the traditional potato 'grate' which combines that centuries-old design with 21st Century technology giving you an efficient and reliable aid to harvesting container and field grown potato tubers.
The effectiveness of the Potato Harvesting Scoop is based on the bar across the end of the tines which prevents the frustrating accidental stabbing of tubers - infuriating for gardeners - while the spacing and shape of the tines (2cm apart) allows potatoes to be sifted from the soil. Measuring 50cm overall and boasting a 15cm wide scoop, the Potato Harvesting Scoop is particularly adept at lifting container or planting bag-grown spuds but can also be used on outdoor crops if the soil is loosened beforehand. The Potato Harvesting Scoop is forged from stainless steel, has a hardwood handle and comes complete with an attractive leather hanging thong.

Recipe Suggestion - Warm Asparagus, Broad Bean and New Potato Salad with Soft Poached Egg and Hollandaise Sauce
Sound appetising? As gardeners ourselves, we know there really isn't anything to compare with the taste of home-grown, freshly picked vegetables - especially when they're transported from kitchen garden to kitchen table in a matter of minutes!
Below you'll find out how three comon garden vegetables can be transformed into a delicious dish with very little effort - and our Potato Scoop has played it's part too!
Here's how to go about creating your own delicious Warm Asparagus, Broad Bean and New Potato Salad with Soft Poached Egg and Hollandaise Sauce for 4.
300g young broad beans
300g new potatoes
4 free range eggs
For the Hollandaise:
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
½ tbsp lemon juice
Salt & pepper
2 egg yolks
Potato Harvesting Scoop – to harvest
1. Pod the broad beans from both the outer main pods and their inner individual casing, wash the new potatoes and cut in half, trim any woody ends off the asparagus
2. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and add the new potatoes
3. After about 8-10 minutes add the asparagus and broad beans to the pan of potatoes and cook for a further 4 minutes
4. Meanwhile make the Hollandaise: put vinegar, lemon juice and salt & pepper in a small pan to heat. Put egg yolks in a food processor and briefly whizz. Slowly pour in the warm vinegar mixture with the food processor running. Melt the butter in the same pan you used for the vinegar and then again pour into the food processor while running.
5. Bring a wide shallow pan of water to the boil then turn heat right down. Crack each egg into a cup and gently slide into the water. Poach for about 2 minutes (to taste) before removing and draining with a slotted spoon.
6. Arrange the vegetables on each plate with a spoonful of the Hollandaise
7. Place one egg on top of the vegetables and grind a little black pepper over
