Copper plated fork and trowel set
I love the idea of using tools which will last for years and years, so when I buy hand tools I am looking for wooden handles, good quality metal, something that fits my hands comfortably.
I have used the non copper version of these hand tools since we stocked them at the Country Living Fair in 2005 and they are still going strong. These ones are copper plated - partly, it must be admitted, because it looks pretty - but also because as the copper plating gradually wears off through use, it will be left in the soil and help to deter underground slugs.
I have taken the opportunity of trying these out to make up a second basket of hand tools so now have one in the greenhouse and one in the shed - so there is no excuse to lose them.
These tools would make a perfect gift for a new gardener - especially someone who has just moved into their own place or is beginning to garden in pots or small beds. They are pretty enough to have in a basket by the back door, or hang up on a peg rail.
