Stainless Steel Transplanting Trowel
Great for planting seedlings, potting, and digging.
The transplanting trowel measures 12¾ inches long, of which 4 inches are curved, pointed blade and the remainder are steel shaft and oak handle. The blade is perfectly shaped to make planting, transplanting, and digging in narrow spaces easy and efficient. And the center of the blade is etched with planting depths from ½-inch to 4 inches, so you can place bulbs at exactly the right spot. (You'll be surprised how often -- and for what a wide variety of tasks -- you use this "portable ruler" while you're in the garden, by the way!)
But planting bulbs is just one of the many jobs this trowel is prepared to do. Because it's so long and narrow, it's ideal for digging deep into smaller pots and garden spaces. The curved sides help you lift out soil and plants without cutting too deep a swathe or dribbling soil as you go. And the handle is contoured to fit your hand nicely, so you experience less fatigue over the course of a long day in the garden. There's even a leather hanging strip so you can put the trowel right onto your belt or hang it in the potting shed.
Joseph Bentley has been the best name in British garden tools for more than a century, and one look at the transplanting trowel tells you why. The blade and shaft are ultra-sturdy stainless steel, while the handle is FSC certified oak. You won't soon find another trowel as expertly made, as durable, or as attractive. Add it to your garden tool shed this season, and we predict you'll make Joseph Bentley your preferred source of all gardening equipment! 1 lb.
