Unlike GreenG, I prefer the crescent shaped shaped tool for this job but don't see them for sale these days.

Digger........that would be a shame to discount this forum on just a couple of bad experiences. 

Most of the people using and posting on this forum would be only too happy to answer your queries and offer advice.  Some of it may be conflicting and therefore hard to judge for your particular situation but gardens and gardeners are different and have different experiences.

Plants in France

Outdoorgirl.........I found the same as you.  After several years in France, it was quite a shock to return to the UK  2 years ago and see the price of plants. 

Then again, this is not a recent phenomenon...............plants were cheaper in mainland Europe in the late 80's too
