Houzz TV: 5 Tools Every Gardener Should Own
For eight years, Ella Ancheta has managed the more than 2½ acres of gardens and grounds of the Elizabeth F. Gamble Garden in Palo Alto, California, a home, garden and horticultural nonprofit. As prime fall planting and trimming season begins, we asked her what tools she turns to most to keep the landscape around the historic Gamble home in good shape for visitors, gardening workshops, weddings and more. Here are her picks and how to use them.
It would be so helpful to know where these particular tools could be purchased.
Hi @carolynmckeney – Here is a collection that has everything you need for fall gardening, including similar products to the ones used in this video! http://www.houzz.com/ideabooks/54343021
We call the Hori Hori-style knife, a soil knife. Available from A. M. Leonard in Piqua, Ohio by mailorder.
I couldn't live without my Hori Hori (means to dig in Japanese) knife! I am "digging" that hand rake.
Please write an article with a video of how to sharpen garden tools. I bought a wet stone and it works but is there a better option?
Any good nursery could stock these. Also Amazon. Tractor City and others (ACE, etc) could stock or they can order one thru their suppliers. a tool I find invaluable is a Stirrup hoe.
long extension pole, anvil loppers that will hold the cutting so you can put it where you want it (ideal for pruning raspberries).
suggestions, please, on how to sharpen tools? small hand tools, like the bypass in this article, are particularly difficult to sharpen. we have several gadgets purportedly designed for this purpose, but none of them is really very good
