Product of the Week: Ridging hoe

This is one of the most popular items on our shop, and little wonder. It looks like something the Grim Reaper might carry around – a typically solid, bombproof and no-nonsense gardening tool from Chillington that will last a lifetime.

The ridging hoe is used for making potato ridges or seed trenches for planting seeds and young plants. Also useful for earthing up vegetables, far quicker than with a spade, thanks to the blade sitting at right angles to the shaft (so it's used in a levering motion, much like a scythe).
