This season we are delighted to offer a selection of fine garden tools from the renowned British firm of Burgon & Ball, which celebrates nearly 300 years in business. This heritage firm uses only the finest materials in its tools: carbon-forged steel for the blades and sustainably harvsted (FSC approved) hardwood for the handles, plus a leather hanging loop. They are designed to last a lifetime, and probably to hand down to your gardening great-grandchildren.

A few select tools from Burgon & Ball's collection have been specially endorsed by the Royal Horticulture Society (RHS), Britain's largest gardening organization and charity, as exceptional in craftsmanship and performance. And from those, several have been selected for a special gift presentation. We are pleased to offer the Passiflora Collection, a boxed set containing a garden fork and trowel boasting violet painted handles and an engraved quote from renowned Victorian gardener and writer Gertrude Jekyll on the blade of the trowel.

The Passiflora Trowel and Fork Gift Set is simply the gift of a lifetime for a dedicated gardener. It arrives hansomely packaged in a sturdy box patterned with a floral design taken from a c. 1790 painting by James Bolton (housed in the Royal Horticulture Society's Lindley Library). The tools each have a vibrant, rich violet-purple handle made of the same sustainably-harvested hardwood used in all Burgon & Ball tools, plus high carbon steel blades guaranteed to last a lifetime. Along the open face of the trowel is engraved:

"The love of gardening is a seed once sown, that never dies."

To say that this gift set will please any gardener is to understate the pleasure these fine tools will bring! This is a once-in-a-lifetime gift, never to be forgotten. The tools come with a lifetime guarantee, part of their endorsement by the Royal Horticulture Society. And although they may seem too pretty to use, before you know it, that special gardener in your life will have them out in the beds and borders, enjoying their beauty in the landscape!
