Based on a traditional Dutch design, this versatile heart-shaped spade is perfectly crafted for border perennial planting.
With a 45cm (17”) long handle for extra reach and leverage, and a head pointed and sharpened for easier soil penetration, the design is ideal for digging and dividing perennials, lifting weeds and planting bulbs with precision.
The curved head produces rounder planting holes to reduce the risk of air pockets when back-filling, and the chunky T-shaped handle makes it comfortable and easy to manoeuvre.
As the handle will naturally shrink over time, a locking nut fixes the head in place - letting you simply re-tighten it to keep the tool solid and strong.
Head width 15cm (6”)
Total length 50cm (19.5”)
