Here is an elegantly simple solution to perennial weed problems in densely-planted areas. “Wrotter” is an old Dutch word that comes from the northern part of the Netherlands and means “tough worker”.
The unique shape and precisely angled head allows you to reach deep into the soil to hook and remove the taproots/rhizomes of deeply-rooted weeds and invasives without breaking them off underground as you might when using bigger, cruder tools.
Especially useful for invaders growing amongst the root systems of other more desirable plants, the wrotter allows removal of the culprit without doing damage to the root systems of your precious or rare plants.
The Sneeboer family has been making garden tools for over 100 years. Sneeboer tools are beautifully designed and built for maximum strength and utility - the heads are hand-forged from one piece of stainless steel and they are fitted with ash handles from FSC-certified forests. Each tool is individually shaped, assembled, sharpened, and polished by skilled master craftsmen in their factory in The Netherlands. They are designed and constructed to last a lifetime.
