More great Christmas gifts for the gardener in your life! The New Year is also the perfect time to introduce those friends and family who aren’t yet gardeners to take up the hobby. We hope that these ideas from Bulldog Tools will inspire you for the coming seasons.
1. Mini Pruning Sets
Always incredibly popular with customers at any time of year! This boxed gift set includes two mini pruners, one pair with straight blades for dead-heading, trimming house plants and for cut flower arranging and another pair with bypass blades suitable for cutting back foliage and harvesting fruit and vegetables. Both pruners feature lockable stainless steel blades and soft easy grip handles.
2. Premier Rabbiting Spade
The tool you didn’t know you needed! You may never have seen a rabbiting spade before, but we think every gardener will love this all-round digging tool. The solid forged, dish shaped, narrow head is perfect for digging planting holes, making furrows and ditches, digging fence post holes and turning over soil close to existing plants. The rabbiting spade is fitted with an Ash ‘T’ or ‘YD’ handle that is both strong and durable. Described as ‘excellent’ by testers at The Telegraph newspaper, this is a really useful garden tool.
3. Premier Wizard Rake
The magical rake that’s perfect for every garden. The Wizard features special soft, flexible tines that make it part rake and part brush. Gardeners can ‘sweep up’ leaves on lawns, flower beds, vegetable patches, decking, patios, paths and driveways without damaging any surface. The wide 20″ head makes every raking task seem easy and the long straight ash handle is very strong and gives extra reach. This rake is also available in the smaller Merlin version with a 10″ head.
4. Pedigree Long Handled Hand Tools
Many of us need a little extra reach in the garden from time to time. These stainless steel long handled hand trowel and fork are a very useful and elegant addition to any keen gardener’s tool shed. The polished stainless steel tool heads reduce soil adhesion and make them easy to wipe clean and the long, traditional ash handles are strong and durable. These tools are particularly useful if you grow vegetables, fruit or flowers in raised beds where the extra reach makes all the difference.
5. Premier Topiary Shears
Old fashioned open bladed ‘shear’ style topiary shears for quick trimming. This cutting tool features sharp stainless steel blades and sprung handles with traditional wooden grips. Perfect for delicate and precision trimming of formal and ornamental garden plants like Box, Yew and Holly which can be effectively shaped with these shears.
6. Pedigree Power Ratchet Secateurs
Great secateurs for those gardeners who aren’t quite as strong as we used to be! This tool incorporates a special ratchet system that allows users to cut through thick branches more easily with a coated blade to reduce corrosion. Fitted with comfortable soft grip handles for prolonged use, these secateurs have a cutting capacity of 20mm and come with a guarantee.
