This compact DeWit hand spade combines the digging power of a border spade with the lightweight manoeuvrability of a hand trowel.
Comfortable and easy on the wrists, it makes perennial planting a breeze. Use two-handed to effortlessly break up compacted ground with the forged sharp steel blade before planting.
The small head is the ideal size for lifting roots and bulbs, and makes it easy to work in tight spaces and corners. An indispensable tool for all serious gardeners.
Please note: take care not to place excessive strain on wooden handles when levering out roots or rocks in very firm soil. To help, water the area well to soften ground first. A crowbar may be more suitable for very heavy or stubborn obstacles.
Head 11.4cm x 17cm (4.5” x 6.75”)
Total length 51cm (20”)
