As a garden designer in Oxford encouraging the next generation to garden is important to me. What better way to inspire enthusiasm than actually providing the right garden tools for children. You wouldn’t ask a child to play cricket with a tennis racket.
Garden tools for children are really important to nurture their enthusiasm in the garden. When they’re very little plastic tools and a wheel barrow are great to get the children out. Little children love discovering insects, making a mess and generally having fun. Hopefully not eating too much mud!
Children’s Garden Tools
When children are a little older a plastic spade just doesn’t work. I decided to get some decent tools and wasn’t disappointed. Burgonandball offer the perfect mini version of a spade, a fork, hand trowel and hand fork. They are beautifully crafted and a pleasure to work with. You will often see me pinching them.
With these mini scaled tools children can happily be part of the growing season. They’ll be digging the allotment, discovering the potatoes and trampling over the lettuces!
Bulldog Tools also offer the above and other tools such as a hoe which is very useful for keeping the weeds at bay
