Spear & Jackson Spades & Forks
Spades come in two sizes: border spades (smaller and for use in flower borders) & general spades (larger and designed for heavy digging). An Irish spade has a narrow curved head and a straight handle.
The fork is the most useful garden tool when hand weeding, the gardening hand fork will loosen the soil around the weeds and ensure that all of the roots come out. Then afterwards a general scuffle over the surface leaves a tidy finish. It can also be used for planting out. The hand fork is a vital tool for any gardener.
