The smaller head has ample tread edge to help push the spade in with your foot. The comfortable wooden handle helps leverage and aids comfort when digging into heavy, hard going or compacted soils.

The spade can be used to to dig or loosen soils in raised beds and borders with finer precision. The border spade has a smaller head that allows you to add definition. Border spades are great for creating planting holes as well as for turning soil for weeding and improving drainage. If your ground is new, compacted or very heavy, you may need to break it up with a carbon steel border fork or a stainless steel border fork before turning over with a spade.

Using a Border Spade

Border spades are Ideal for jobs in beds and borders. They suit cultivation, turning soil, even aerating and breaking up soils. Great for raised beds or creating new vegetable plots and breaking ground for planting up with wooden cold frames.

CAUTION: When digging, it's important to keep a straight back at all times. Always use the spade to leverage the soil with minimal effort and deposit soil as close as possible to minimise twisting and stretching.

For earlier planting in larger gardens, use a poly tunnel with growhouse shelving or a walk in growhouse. Whatever space you have available, get a jump start on spring and choose from our range of growhouses.
