With a narrower blade than a standard trowel, this streamlined trowel is designed for transplanting plants and seedlings, but equally useful for digging up tap-rooted weeds, planting bulbs and general cultivation.

Constructed from robust tempered steel, it won’t bend with regular use, and the sharpened blade gives it superior soil penetration to make single-handed digging easy.

The perfect tool for working in smaller spaces, it's ideal for planting up pots, containers and baskets, and weeding densely planted beds and borders.

Probably my favourite trowel

Ideal for transplanting and weeding. They have others too, but this is the one I always have with me

Multiple use tool

This narrow trowel is ideal for removing deep-rooted weeds from a rockery or border. It is very comfortable for my small hands and reassuringly sturdy. I expect it to last a long time and continue to be very useful.

A handy tool

It's a quality product and good buy. I use it to transplant seedlings, make holes for bedding plants in the heavy clay soil at my allotment.

I would recommend this product

I like De Wit products and this trowel is great for transplanting in small spaces. The trowel is narrower than other trowels and doesn't disturb the plants nearby when digging around.

Has become my main trowel

I have found that this narrow trowel with very sharp edges is actually more useful than my regular trowel. Excellent for getting plants out of the soil prior to moving them as it goes down and deep and preserves the root ball. And a must-have for large bulbs like daffs. Makes a neat cylindrical hole that the bulb drops into.

Help to starting grow vegetables please...... Hi there, I??'ve got a very small east facing patio garden but would very much like to grow some vegetables and plants in pots. I a??m an inexperienced gardener ?? - this is my first garden! So really need some advice about what is easy to grow and everything I need. For the vegetables: - I'??m interested in the windowbox collection, ?? could you tell me what else I need to buy (compost, fertiliser, pots, tools, supports for growing the plants etc). I??'m happy to buy them all from you so a complete shopping list would be fab! I would also like to grow some potatoes and possibly some bay and chillies as I use these in my cooking. Could you tell me what varieties I should buy (one's that are easy to grow) and again everything I need to grow them. Any more instructions on the above would be fab too! I'??ve got 2 cats,-do I need to do anything to protect the plants from them or other animals/insects (slugs?)? Cheers, ??sorry to ask so many questions but I a??m really naive when it comes to gardening! :-) Many thanks

Hello there again, I think you are on the right track. You won't need any protection for the vegetables from the weather, and a cover won't protect them from the slugs and snails I'm afraid. Probably best for you just to be very vigilent and watch out for the slugs and snails. Hope this helps

Rachel King

Thanks for getting back to me. I've been thinking hard about this. I thought about going for:- a) Mini Raised Bed, support frame and Liner. I thought this would be good as it will offer some protection from the elements as well as the weather. My patio is east facing so really only gets direct sun in the morning.... Assume that this will be the equivalent of 1 large window box. b) then thought I'd go for the vegetable planting bag with willow surround. I would get 2 of these, as these would be the equivalent of 2 large window boxes. If I buy these do I need to get anything to protect from pests - a cover of some sort - if so what would you recommend? I know I do have a problem with snails and slugs already c) finally what compost would I buy? Sorry to bug you with more questions. Just want to make sure I get the right stuff.

Hello There, It is difficult to give a definitive list of things you will need as the collections may vary slightly. They are however sent out with some general growing instructions. If planted out into the ground, the window-box collection will fill a patch aproximately 3m??, but you can use 4 really large windowboxes, troughs, growbags or planters. There are loads available so I would choose ones that you like the look of that suit the style of your garden. Once you have decided on these you can then calculate how much compost you will need to fill them (1000 litres of compost will fill 1m3). A trowel will come in handy, a few bamboo canes for anything that needs support and you will need a general purpose fertiliser such as Growmore to feed them. As they grow you will need to keep an eye out for pests and diseases, but spraying with insecticides is not recommended on edible crops. They will need to be grown in a sunny spot and will need to be kept well watered. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

Thanks Helen, this is great - I've put the order in. There wasn't any John Innes No 2 compost - so I ordered the no 3. Says was good for veg - so assume ok. Now all I have to do is plant them and try and keep them alive! :-)

Buying vegetable plants

If you just want to grow a few vegetables or have suffered losses with early sowings, buying plants is a great way to play catch-up. Buying plants also allows you to grow vegetables if you do not have the facilities to raise them from seed yourself or whe
