Stainless Steel Hand-held Daisy Grubber
Less than 2 inches wide, it targets just the root, not the whole garden!
The daisy grubber comes to us from England (as you might guess from its name -- here we might be more likely to call it a "dandelion yanker"!) and has become the favorite tool of the gardeners in our trial gardens. It's just so precision -- you get just the root you want, without disturbing nearby plants. And it digs deep -- at 17⅓ inches long, this is one tool that can travel far down into the soil to remove troublesome weeds at their source.
Of course, the daisy grubber is also useful for drilling deep, slender holes in the soil, such as are used to set bamboo stakes and other supports. It's ideal for reaching down through the dense branches of a shrub and plucking out a sucker or other volunteer without harming any of the foliage. The polished stainless steel keeps soil from adhering to it as it is withdrawn, so you get a very tiny hole that fills in with the first watering. Nice!
The daisy grubber is constructed of ultra-durable polished steel and FSC certified oak, with a contoured handle that's easy to grip and very comfortable. It even includes a leather carry strap, perfect for hanging it from your garden belt or above the potting bench. And it comes from Joseph Bentley, the best name in British garden supplies since 1895. There's no substitute for quality, and you will find this to be one of your finest as well as your favorite garden tools. Add it to your wheelbarrow this season! 1 lb.
