The great thing about learning to garden is that there are so many helpful tips and insights out there to help get you started, with 36% of gardeners stating that they enjoy sharing ideas and knowledge on gardening in the UK. For those of you looking to start gardening, we have listed the top must have garden tools for any shed.

The right tools for the garden

  1. Trowel - This gardening tool is a must have product for weeding, digging or potting. It makes light work of planting borders or filling flowerbeds and is an essential piece of equipment to any gardener. The trowel is perhaps one of the most popular gardening hand tools.
  2. Spade - An obvious and essential tool in the garden is a spade. Useful for digging, turning over beds, planting and mulching, the garden spade is a multi-purpose tool. Available in a variety of sizes, this is most definitely a tool every gardener should have.
  3. Rake -The rake is a tool often forgotten by many until the autumn comes. As the summer ends and the autumn begins, a rake becomes a useful and often vital gardening tool as it clears the leaf litter that can suffocate flowerbeds, lawns and damage ponds. It can also be used throughout the year to help you maintain a green and healthy lawn.
  4. Secateurs - Secateurs are ideal for pruning and trimming large or thick plants and bushes during the growing season. Regular trimming keeps your plants and shrubs in a healthy condition and protects them from the winter.
  5. Watering Can -Unless you have a sprinkler system a watering can is an essential to keep your garden hydrated throughout the dry season. By regularly watering your garden, you should see beautiful blooms and greenery come back year on year. However, remember never to water your garden when it is very hot as this can damage your plants, wait until the evening when the temperature has cooled.
  6. Lawn Mower - We all want to keep our lawns green, healthy, neat and tidy, and the lawn mower is the ideal way to achieve this. It is recommended that you only ever cut a maximum of a 1/3 of the grass at any given time, and try to leave a few days between cuts to keep your lawn healthy and avoid unsightly patches.
