Lee Valley Garden Tools Catalog

Nothing motivates a gardener more than really useful gardening tools - especially when there's still snow on the ground. I love tools that make less work and promote less wear and tear on the body. I received my Lee Valley Garden Tools Catalog about two weeks ago and a few items caught my attention.

How many times have I taken divisions and needed a sharp edge to cut portions in half, or remove root bound masses? This looks so useful!

I've used one similar to this, and it's a back saver. What a great way to break up soil after foot traffic or heavy rains trample down soil.

I always try other methods to chemical controls when it comes to weeds growing between my patio stones. Since half the time I can't pull them out, I think I will add this to my tool collection.

Garden Tub: I bought one of these last year. I used it all the time. I collapses and tucks away in my deck box, and is quite durable. I plan on buying the Shallow Garden Tub size, (6.5" high, 22.5" in diameter) which is only available at the stores (not online). I will use this shallow one to do small potting jobs, without getting soil every where.

If you can take a road trip, check out the wonderful tools, books and plants at Common Ground Organic Garden Supply in Palo Alto: I think it's worth a drive.
My favorite tools which they sell at Common Ground are: Felco Pruner (it comes in a size for small hands), Women's Work gloves (sized for women's hands), imported-from-England Border Fork, and the Woodland Strawberries, or Fraises de Bois, I got there!
I've bought some wonderful books and magazines there as well. Here are recommendations for great gardening books from a friend of mine who is a garden designer and teacher: www

  • Avatar Lukas Bryson Does anyone know the best gardening tools to buy?

    Trying to start a halfway decent garden, so is there a particular type of gardening glove that's better than any-old glove? What about a root-puller-upper for weeding? I guess I just don't know what a professional gardener would use as their "hammer and nails" if that makes any sense. Any green-thumbs out there care to share?
