Garden Transplanting Spade by Burgon and Ball

$ 95.00

This long, narrow-bladed garden transplanting spade is perfect for digging amongst dense planting, for example in a tightly-packed border. Despite its slender shape, however, it is extremely strong. It has been tested to a breaking strain of 200 lbs – that’s 82% stronger than the British standard.

The mirror-polished stainless steel head gives rust resistance and clean movement through the soil. Wide comfort treads at the top of the blade prevent any discomfort for feet, allowing you to really dig deep – but without disturbing neighboring planting.

The FSC certified Ash handle has a comfortable 'Y' grip and is attached to the base via an extra-long, double-riveted strapped socket that introduces strength and an element of flex at this key joint.

Like all the Royal Horticultural Society-endorsed stainless steel tools, this transplanting spade comes with a lifetime guarantee against manufacturer's defects.

A new favorite.

I love this new spade. It is the perfect size for digging up perennials as it’s not cumbersome or too heavy, but due to its long blade it has excellent leverage for popping the plants out of the ground to divide. I’m not a big person and this is a great addition to my tool shed. It’s already a ‘favorite!’
