Based on a traditional Dutch design, this versatile heart-shaped spade is perfectly crafted for border perennial planting.

With a 45cm long handle for extra reach and leverage, and a head pointed and sharpened for easier soil penetration, the design is ideal for digging and dividing perennials, lifting weeds and planting bulbs with precision.

The curved head produces rounder planting holes to reduce the risk of air pockets when back-filling, and the chunky T-shaped handle makes it comfortable and easy to manoeuvre.

As the handle will naturally shrink over time, a locking nut fixes the head in place - letting you simply re-tighten it to keep the tool solid and strong.

Please note: take care not to place excessive strain on wooden handles when levering out roots or rocks in very firm soil. To help, water the area well to soften ground first. A crowbar may be more suitable for very heavy or stubborn obstacles.

Head width 11.5cm
Total length 50cm
