Great Dixter Planting Spade
The classic planting spade has been part of the Sneeboer garden tool collection for multiple generations. The planting spade is designed to divide perennial shrubs and make planting holes while working close to the ground. The planting spade is a welcome and most useful addition to any garden.
The blade of the Great Dixter planting spade is forged and sharpened on both sides and is formed into a point making it very easy to drive into the ground. The Great Dixter planting spade has a V-shape in the length of the blade, making it more suited to digging holes and scooping up material compared to the regular perennial spade. The short size of the planting spade, measuring 57cm overall, makes it the perfect tool to work with precision in a kneeled position. The planting spade, a smaller version of the Sneeboer pointed spade, is equally suited to dividing shrubs, lifting bulbs, digging planting holes and working in areas where a full size spade would be too cumbersome. The Great Dixter planting spade is fitted with a 42cm ash T-handle.
The Great Dixter planting spade is designed to the exact specifications of Fergus Garrett, head gardener at the Great Dixter. This planting spade is one of a special collection of tools that we are allowed to sell under the “Great Dixter” pedigree and name. Sneeboer is the only manufacturer of garden tools in the world that are allowed to use this name in their product range. With each Great Dixter tool that Sneeboer sells, a part of the revenue is donated to the Great Dixter Charitable Trust. Sneeboer is happy and proud that we can contribute to this excellent example of English cultural heritage.
