I love garden tools, particularly old, antique ones, I like browsing round a section of a garden that has a display of them or antique hand farming tools.
I find it hard to believe now, with all our new-fangled, ergonomic, make the job easier implements, that so much work was done with these simple tools.
When I bought my first house with a small garden I couldn’t afford a shiny new garden tools set. I acquired a few cheap things, and I inherited some from my Mother-in-law and that is all I had. She had a lovely pair of stainless steel secateurs which I hardly ever have to sharpen and they look as good now as they did when she bought them about fifty or sixty years ago.
Also, a pair of shears with wooden handles, the wood worn smooth as silk over many years use.
Wooden Handled Tools
These tools gave me a love of quality garden tools with wooden handles, I like the feel of wood, it kind of grounds me when I am working. Wooden handled garden tools give me a deeper sense of working with Nature.
I didn’t have a lot of spare cash when I started gardening so I went “shopping” at the local tip. I came back with a fork, rake, hoe and a trowel for a fiver!
I still have them, but I have now moved on to being able to buy some nice new ones. I still choose wooden handles mostly but they are quite heavy compared to modern materials and not so ergonomic. As a professional I need work friendly tools so I also have a set that are lighter weight, better for my posture and easy on my hands and back.

Garden Tool Sets for Women
I’m not one for selecting items that are gender specific. Both men and women are completely capable of using tools efficiently whether they are specifically made and designed for women or men. But I appreciate that some will like the look of some tools over others so I have a chosen a few sets here that you may like. I can only assume that they are considered ideal for women as they have flowered designs on them…also more than suitable and on the wish list of male gardeners too I would imagine. Anyway I’ve found a pink set for the ladies or men in your lives that like pink and who enjoy gardening.

Kids love to get out in the garden and we really should encourage them to do so. With help and guidance they can find huge pleasure and entertainment from gardening. Teach them about birds, bugs and bees and they will happily spend time searching for them. Teach them how to grow and nurture plants and they will quite possibly have a life long interest in gardening.
These Kids Gardening Tool Sets will encourage them more, as they do like to have their own things that look just like the ones Mum or Dad uses. Also as they are designed with children in mind they are brightly coloured, easy to use and child-sized.
