Hand Tools

The right garden tools make a big difference in pleasure and success in gardening. For the new gardener, or someone who started out with entry-level gardening hand tools that don't do their tasks very well, we have pulled together the essentials in hand tools for garden success. You will use our 2 piece carbon steel pruning set, a bypass pruner (the best - be sure you get bypass!) and lightweight trimmer as garden tools almost every day. If you add any of the dozens of bulb plants (tulips, daffodils, alliums, etc.) to your landscape, you will treasure our bulb planter garden tools. For the indoor gardener's tools and garden needs, we offer the Deluxe Indoor Tool & Tote Set. The hard-to-find, container-sized gardening tools are die-cast aluminum and guaranteed for life. They include mini pruner, snips, rake, trowel, shovel and glass plant mister bottle, all tucked in a handy cream-colored tote with green trim.

Do gardening tools make a garden? Well, yes. And even more important, garden tools make the gardener. If you've ever used a poor tool for something, you know the work took longer, you made more mistakes, and sometimes you finally had to give up and buy a better tool. You can avoid frustration and lost time when you buy or give good gardening tools.

How do you recognize good garden tools? First, materials. Demand good quality steel or aluminum. If the finish appears to be chipping at the edges, those tools are not for you. Does a gardening tool like a pruner, which opens and closes, do so easily and without sticking? A pruner that sticks shut is an endless hassle. Examine the blade carefully - if the cutting edge is very smooth it will be sharper. The store may be able to demonstrate sharpness - running your finger along the edge of a good pruner is likely to result in a cut! See our pruner and trimmer garden tool set.

Tools and garden also mesh when you decide to try some indoor houseplants, or bring summer pots indoors for the winter. You won't believe how much easier it is to use our garden tools sized for pots. An outdoor trowel is just plain too big for many indoor pots, and using a serving spoon less than satisfactory. Note the sharp end on the small trowel in our Deluxe Indoor Tool & Tote set. Fits anywhere. The trimmer and can pare unruly roots to allow your plants to grow better. This set of gardening tools also includes a rake plus a plant mister. Indoor air is usually dryer than plants like. You'll be amazed at what a little misting can do. The tote for these tools and garden mister is handy as you go from plant to plant and ensures you'll find all your gardening tools in one place.
