The most useful tool I have is a thing called 'Snapper'. It's really a pair of secateurs on the end of a metre-long pole. It is excellent for pruning hard to reach shrubs, but, best of all, it holds onto the pruned piece so that it doesn't drop into the surrounding plants. I wouldn't do without it.

The most useful tool I have is an azada.It looks like a wide flat-bladed pick axe and is great for turning over new ground or breaking up big clods and it doesn't hurt your back!

where can I get a rollup garden path. I remember seeing such things advertised in the past they were slatted and made of wood?

Hi everyone! Its that time of the year again when I know I’ve got to do something with my garden, it’s a complete mess and I’m thinking of getting some sort of storage unit to put my lawnmower and the gardening tools etc. its not a bad sized garden, so I’m thinking like a double door shed..Any recommendations where I should look? Cheers! Katy :)

Hi I was watching the episode screened 29 July 2011, where Monty used the double headed rake, but he called it a "Hand Hoe". I doubled checked what he said by rewinding (Sky+) and put the sub titles on. Never-the-less, not had any luck finding one. I've emailed the BBC in the hope of some help...

I think the tools mentioned in this post is useful but quite old. Many gardeners are using garden machines like this http://skitech.org/gardenmachines today. I think life gardeners would be easier with machines.
