Item # 38794

The Potato Harvesting Scoop looks like a combination gardening fork and sieve. The end is blunt and wide, with tines spaced just far enough apart to sift out soil and small clumps while retaining bulbs and root vegetables. This tool is "stab proof," allowing you to safely dig for roots without damaging or slicing through them. And the best part? It is so effective and well made that it has been endorsed by the Royal Horticulture Society, and comes with a lifetime guarantee!

Measuring 20 inches long, the blunt end of the Potato Harvesting Scoop is 6 inches wide, a good size for grubbing around in the soil in search of potatoes, flowering bulbs, and even the rootballs of small plants that must be transplanted. It is an excellent tool for large containers, where plants are often rearranged and replaced. And it's sturdy and efficient enough to use in a large field of potatoes or other root vegetables.

Fans of heritage tools will recognize that the Potato Harvesting Scoop is basically an update of the classic garden implement known as a potato grate. The tines really do look like a grate, but it is the bar across their ends that is the real innovation of this garden tool, making it stab-proof and also keeping it in alignment -- no bent tines pointing in different directions, even after years of hard use!

You will find many uses for this scoop, from lifting baby bulbils from established bulbs to safely extracting dahlia, 4 o'clock, and begonia tubers at season's end. And for anyone breaking in a new patch of garden, it's the ideal sifter to eliminate those lingering rootballs, chunks of old grass, and even large stones.

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.
