Well made but it stays in the bag, the Weed Gouger out performs it
I have found this the ideal tool for removing self set ferns that appear in the midst of plants also helpful in getting out ash seedlings that have the same habit.
Iexpected this to be an effective. Weeded but I was disappointed as it only removes strands of long roots not all.this is no good for perennial weeds like docks. It was young docks I was weeding so reverted to a hand fork.
Many thanks for your feedback
The Sneeboer Wrotter was mainly designed for the problem of weeding around already established plants in crowded borders and pots.
We would suggest the Sneeboer Two pronged Weeder for driving through and loosening the soil to allow tap rooted weeds to be removed completely.

The right tools for the job
Mary Keen ends her useful survey by asking what else a gardener needs. My first suggestion is generally described as a 'dandelion plucker' or 'dandelion gouge' I have a Sneeboer Tough Weeder - its shaft of forged steel (iron would not stand the leverage) is flattened at the tip to provide a V-shaped knife to extract deep-rooted weeds. It is also good for grubbing out couch grass between border plants, and with less collateral damage than using any tool with a broader cross-section, such as a hoe.
