Border versions. Big 'uns are great for open spaces and digging over veggie plots. Border are more practical if you're working between plants or in restricted spaces.
I've got a normal spade and love it. I am 5'5''. Use it for everything.
No no Edd I'm definitely not going for a shovel lol. I was just looking at the old one that broke it was a digging spade. My own fault cus I left it outside on all weathers.
all my plants are in a raised flower bed quite cramped together. Just theres big perrenials in there like leucanthemums and day Lilly's that need dug out and split
Thanks Dovefromabove, KT53 and hogweed
a big Irish spade will do the trick Edd lol
