Combining the best bits from a variety of tools, the multi trowel offers all the benefits of a transplanting trowel with the addition of a fishtail tip for weeding and lifting tap roots, a serrated cutting edge for opening up bags of compost and for sawing through roots or matted soil and a nifty twine cutting notch.
(1) The Fishtail weeder tip works by getting underneath the weed just below the soil it then grips the weed as you lift it aiming to keep the root still attached.
(2) The serrated edge rips open compost bags and also comes in handy if you are dividing pot-bound plants where you can easily cut through the root mat.
(3) The little notch can be used for cutting twine.
(4) And of course, it’s an excellent trowel in its own right!
