Top 3 Must Have Tools for the Home Gardener


  1. Felco Pruners are by far the best pruners I have ever had.  They are Swiss made, and last forever!  I have had the same pair of pruners last for 14 years.  They have replaceable parts, so if one part wears out, you don’t have to buy a whole new pair of pruners.  They are tough and sturdy and I don’t go anywhere without them…just ask my husband.  
  2. Wilcox Pro Trowels are the nicest trowels on the market in my opinion.  They are made from stainless steel from one solid piece from the tip of the blade all the way through the tip of the handle.  Even in the hardest soil, you will have a tough time bending this handle.  Also, they are made in the USA right here in my home state of Iowa.
  3. Garden Spade I prefer Ames brand.  After many years of breaking my back and planting on my hands and knees, I have gone to using a spade more often than using a trowel to plant my annuals and perennials.  You don’t have to bend as much, and you can still get a fairly precise hole dug out for smaller plants.  Also, using a spade has reduced the amount of work I have to do with my hands and wrists.
