Plant Up With WOLF-Garten: Not everyone is blessed with wide expanses of outside space to grow plants, fruit and vegetables. A lot of people have a smaller garden, some may rent and are unable to dig up the easy-care patio beloved by landlords, and for some, access to green space is limited to a balcony or window-box. This need not mean that they cannot enjoy the colour, scent and pleasure that plants can offer.
Container and balcony gardening means that the joy of cultivation is open to all, and with a collection of WOLF-Garten Hand Tools, specifically designed with the smaller garden in mind, the job couldn’t be easier. The range has been created for working in areas where space is limited or in densely planted pots and containers. The range includes forks, trowels, a hoe and bulb planter, all of which are lightweight and comfortable to use, as well as being compact and easy to store. A major benefit of the range comes from the handles. Each of the tools has a fixed handle that has been developed with three specific zones which ensure optimum control, comfort and power when needed. This is all fitted into a compact, lightweight package, with comfort and control at the forefront of the design.
The 7.5cm Flower Fork is perfect for planting and transplanting in pots and containers, with its strong steel tines providing stability and the comfortable handle preventing pain from pressure points.
The 7cm Wide Trowel provides manoeuvrability around areas with limited space and makes planting up versatile plants, such as the hardy begonia or the delicate summer snapdragon, a breeze.
For planting areas with even less space, such as a window-box, the 5cm Planting Trowel is perfect. Its narrow width means that plants can be interplanted without disturbing their neighbours. It is ideal for mini herb gardens that have been suspended out of the kitchen window!
Once planting is done and foliage begins to fall later in the season, the 11.5cm Small Sweep comes into its own, neatly sweeping up fallen leaves and petals from even the tightest of gaps.
