I have a thick black plastic trowel that came with a gardening magazine. (It might just have been a Gardeners World freebie) but what was basically a thick wedge of plastic really would not dig into anything.
It is probably still lying somewhere on the floor of my "Wendy house".
See original post
If it's the one I am thinking of then after despising it for years, I found the end of the handle unscrews to reveal a calibrated dibber! Both bits are useful in the greenhouse only, as a scoop and dibber.
My useless item was a hand held bulb planter that I am not strong enough to push into the ground (or my clay soil is too heavy) and it does not release the plug of soil afterwards either.
