Border or digging spade

    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
