- Aerates soil and improves water/nutrient flow
- Two sharpened tines for excellent soil penetration
- Lifetime guarantee
A rose grower’s best friend, this two-pronged steel and ash fork makes it easy to loosen and aerate soil before fertilising or mulching in spring and autumn.
Insert the fork on each side of the roots and lift to break up the soil. Moisture and nutrients will better penetrate the looser soil, and roots will have more room to grow.
Made from hand-forged carbon steel, the head features only two bevelled tines to exert maximum pressure and slice into even the most compacted soil with ease.
Though designed for roses, it can be used to improve soil and boost drainage around all your shrubs, trees and climbers. As an added bonus, the fork is superb for digging awkward long-rooted weeds out of heavy clay soil.
For comfortable two-handed use, the tool is fitted with a chunky ergonomic T-handle made from solid ash.
Handle length 75cm
Head length 40cm
Total length 120cm
Please note: it is an offence to sell knives and other cutting tools to persons under the age of 18 years.
