Spear & Jackson Cultivating Tools
When you have dug over the soil, a cultivating tool is useful for breaking up and aerating the soil, and hoes are good for levelling and weeding. To cultivate is to turn, move, mix, stir or tidy the soil. Cultivation is the preparation of soil for growing plants. Weeding is an important part of cultivation - weeds grow fast and reproduce fast so if not exterminated by the diligent gardener they will deprive your plants of both nutrients and water.
