Spring Watering for Seedlings and Plants
It is gardening time and the doors of The Garden Shed are open.
I have the most beautiful Haws and Burgon & Ball watering cans, made in England from Sheffield steel which will not rust. Each has a solid brass rose that will last a lifetime. Available in a range of colours, not all in this photo. Prices are $75 and $120.
Hand made, Tas Oak Garden Markers
Made by Mike in Woodbridge, these durable little signs with burnt-in text make lovely additions to your garden or perfect gifts for giving and posting. $3.50 each or 3 for $10
Mike’s wife, Tricia, makes our calico, Cygnet Market shopping bags which are $4 each. And she makes all the net bags I use for my sourdough kits and workshops. Lovely, local, retired couple.
Ho Mi and Razor Hoe
The Korean ho mi has been in existence for thousands of years. It is hand forged from high grade steel and will never rust. I have had mine for about 15 years and give it a heavy duty workout all the time without there having been any deterioration in its shape or strength or sharpness!
The Razor Hoe is made from hardened Japanese steel and can be honed to be as sharp as a razor. It will hold that sharpness for a long time and is perfect for cutting weeds at the soil level and other jobs in areas where the ho mi is too big. Available in left and right hand models.
