Put aside its macabre past this is an amazing tool for transplanting and planting trees and shrubs. It has a longer more dished and tapered blade than a Border Spade which makes it easier to penetrate the soil. Its shape also makes it quicker to dig deeper and rounder holes for planting. Every shed should have one! These tools feature the longer stronger lipped socket that is unique to Greenman Garden Tools designed by Adam’s Great Grandfather. The main benefit of this socket is that it allows the wood a degree of flex whilst offering support and increasing the strength of the tool. It’s also longer than usual, again adding strength but also means less bending is required. All these tools feature our sustainable Ash handles, the digging tools have filled YD Ash handles which offer great comfort and support as well as completing the traditional feel and look. The heads are made with a high carbon content mirror polished stainless steel for strength as well as offering minimal soil adhesion.
