The transplanting trowel is a more traditional trowel shape and has a wide heart-shaped head with a sharp pointed tip and sharpened edges. The wider blade with slightly angled sides is a clever design feature that will allow you to move/hold more soil when working with this tool.
The sharp tip and edges easily cut through roots and heavier soils, and this is an excellent tool for potting and propagating work. The curved ash handle makes this a nice alternative to a hori hori for smaller hands. This is one of Sneeboer's bestselling tools worldwide.
