This long, narrow-bladed garden spade is perfect for digging amongst dense planting, for example in a tightly-packed border. Despite its slender shape, however, it is extremely strong. It has been tested to a breaking strain of 100kg – that’s 82% stronger than the British standard.
The mirror-polished stainless steel head gives rust resistance and clean movement through the soil. Wide comfort treads at the top of the blade prevent any discomfort for feet, allowing you to really dig deep – but without disturbing neighbouring planting.
The FSC certified hardwood handle has a comfortable 'Y' grip, double riveted at the base for strength. An extra-long, double-riveted strapped socket introduces strength and an element of flex at this key joint.
This stainless steel transplanting spade is endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society, perhaps the highest accolade in the gardening world. Like all of Burgon & Ball's RHS-endorsed stainless steel tools, this spade is covered by their lifetime guarantee.
