Designed by the famous British gardening author Christopher Lloyd who lived at the East Sussex estate known as The Great Dixter, this fork is one handy tool in tightly planted beds.
Cottage garden beds are typically tightly planted, making it hard to weed and work the soil. This tickling fork allows you to do this, all without bending over and staining your back.
Handmade in Holland
“Fergus Garrett received the original tool from a fisherman in North Wales and after using it everyone fell in love with it. It was adapted by giving it a longer handle which enables you to use it without an aching back and its central tine was extended to give greater precision when dealing with individual weeds. The head is angled perfectly, to make it flow from your arms and feel a part of body. A narrow, light handle makes it easy to use and flat tines allow you greater contact with the soil.”
