I'm new to gardening and today while weeding the 25+ year old hand trowel I have ended up with multiple bends, so looking for a new one. Can anyone please recommend one for less than £10? Thanks!

    We recently got a nice trowel,fork,and planter set from Lidl wooden handles for that price, at the moment though, not on offer you need to keep your eye out.  They are as good quality as ones I bought hubby from Waitrose

    OK nice I'll keep an eye out, thanks. I just ordered one from ASDA for £4 to use in the meantime. 

    While looking for your Lidl one I just found this which looks interesting https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/153882071232

    I got all my hand garden tools from Asda in 2013, I had just moved into a house having previously lived in a flat, so had none at all. I only paid about £3 for each one of them, thinking that I would replace them with good quality ones as they wore out. I am still using them now.

    I’d go for this. It’s from the Bulldog stable.

    Personally I use the Niwaki hori hori but it is above your budget.

    Well I hope mine will perform as well  :)

    That's a nice one but I wouldn't order it from there because the website appears to force me provide them with my personal information before they reveal the delivery cost and I really don't like that one bit. I'll see if it's available elsewhere.

    I develop E-commerce websites professionally and I can also see some other issues with that website which look very unprofessional, but it could be that's it's a new site still in early development or they have a poor digital team/web-dev.
