Lightweight and easy to use, this set of a hand fork, trowel and rake has been designed for KS1 and lower KS2 pupils.
Ideal for use when tending grow beds and pots, the tools have durable metal heads and comfortable contoured handles.
Gardening hand tools can be used for a huge range of tasks in the school grounds. Small in size, they can be used to easily access hard to reach or tight spaces, they also allow for more precision than larger equipment, so are especially useful for more delicate tasks.
Hand rakes can be used for raking leaves from grow beds, loosening soil for planting, smoothing out soil in preparation for seeds and for gently pulling out weeds.
Hand trowels have a narrow head so are useful for digging small holes for planting seeds, bulbs and seedlings. They can also be used for potting up and transporting plants.
Hand forks are typically used for loosening and turning over soil in preparation for planting and for improving drainage and aeration.
