Part Trowel, Part Dibbler, It Goes Narrow and Deep!

Item # 38793

Sold Out

Engrave your initials onto this wonderful tool, because it is going to be borrowed frequently by all your gardening friends and neighbors! The Widger is a hybrid of a trowel and a dibbler, and we find that it comes in handy for a wide variety of tasks. Need to dig a narrow, deep hole for planting small bulbs? Done. What about extracting a seedling from a crowded planter without destroying half the stems and all the roots? Let the Widger do the job. Want to furrow a straight line for direct-sowing seed? The Widger does it in no time flat.

Measuring 13 inches long but just one inch wide, this tool acts as both a digger and an awl. It's absolutely tops for working in flowerpots and tubs, where space is so tight and it's easy to damage neighboring plants when weeding, pruning, or planting. We like scooping under weeds and removing them from the very root, even when that root goes straight down a foot into the soil (as weeds always seem to do). And it's ideal for making quick planting holes, of course.

So where does the Widger come from? Well, this one originated with Burgon & Ball, a British garden tool firm renowned for its use of quality materials and fine craftsmanship. The Widger has demonstrated such good performance and longevity in the garden that the Royal Horticulture Society, England's premiere gardening organization and charity, has endorsed it! It comes with a lifetime guarantee, and we are very honored to offer it to Park gardeners this season.

The long blade of the Widger is carbon-forged steel, and its ergonomically friendly handle is made from sustainably-harvested (FSC) hardwood. It comes with a leather loop for hanging on the wall of the toolshed or potting bench. Simple care instructions are included. All this, plus a lifetime guarantee! Not many garden tools can equal that!

Make the Widger part of your collection of garden tools this season. We predict it will soon have its own place in your garden apron, or will ride around dangling from the handle of your wheelbarrow. It's just that useful -- an all-purpose "long reach" for tight spots! Order yours today!

I Use for Weeds in and Around Plants, but...careful with hard and dry clay soil.
Home Gardner from CA wrote on June 10, 2018

Pros - Great around my vegetables and flowers...long enough to help me go after remnants of Bermuda grass that re-emerge after planting beds or rows. It is narrow with smooth edges which helps me not to hurt the plants I'm weeding around. It's my "go to" tool for going after weeds that sprout up between closely planted vegetables or flowers. Con - When I first got this widger, I thought that carbon-forged steel meant that it was hardened steel (similar to a hammer or chisel) so I went after weeds in compacted, dry clay soil at the beginning of planting season (before preparing the rows), and I bent the end of the widger. It was replaced under warranty (I had to contact the manufacturer), but now I use the tool after I have planted (for follow-up weeding), and it works very well...if they made this tool out of hardened steel (similar to a hammer or chisel), I would give it higher than a 5 star rating!
