|These tools are hand-forged in stainless steel by Sneeboer & Zn and are the best we have come across. This fork is part of a range especially designed by Great Dixter.
In a cottage garden where borders are packed with plants and self-sowers are essential, it is difficult to get into the tight spaces between plants to weed, and work the soil. This long handled fork enables you to do this without crouching or bending your back, allowing you to tip toe through the border and reach into difficult spaces. The narrow head and flat tines makes it possible to incorporate compost between plants minimising damage and encouraging self-sowers (mulching would prevent this). Using a hoe smears the soil and simply doesn’t get deep enough. An essential tool for borders packed with plants. It has an ash handle.
Overall length 143 cm; 16 cm tine length; 13 cm fork width.
