Our De Wit Dutch Rockery Transplanter, comes with an extra long narrow blade that makes transplanting a breeze. It also comes in handy when sowing seeds. The narrow blade is great for digging out the drills and then you can load it up with seeds and sprinkle them along the lines before gently covering them with soil. An excellent tool for working in tight nooks and crannies in rockeries. The sharpened channel shape makes this very useful for weeding out tap rooted weeds and plants Fill trowel channel with seeds, draw back in soil and shake seeds into the drills. The Dutch are rightly regarded as makers of the finest gardening tools. De Wit have been around longer than anyone. They started in 1898 and the 4th generation of De Wits are now in charge of the business; one is a trained wood turner, the other trained as a blacksmith. De Wit forge their tools from carbon steel in the traditional way. Carbon Steel is naturally tougher than stainless steel and is not prone to metal fatigue. De Wit also burnish their steel. This not only helps to protect it for longer but gives it a patina that blackens it - just like traditional English tools from the Edwardian era. All De Wit tools have turned hardwood handles of oiled Ash. Ash is not only very strong but resists shock better than woods like oak or beech, which is why it was traditionally used for Axe handles. The result is a beautiful tool to hold in the hand but rugged and durable. They feel so natural to use that they are like an extension of the person that uses them. These tools will give you a lifetime of use, until you hand them on. Size Head: 2cm wide ( 1) Total Length: 35cm long (13.75)
