This trowel was designed to the specifications of Christopher Lloyd, that well-known British garden writer who lived and gardened at Great Dixter (get googling if you've never heard of him!). This was one of his favourite tools for planting and weeding.
The long, narrow blade allows you to dig more deeply in tight spaces and the sturdy design gives you leverage. The rounded tip is sharp and provides a good cutting surface. Lastly, the blade is curved so it will hold more soil when you're scooping it out of the hole.
