Serious gardening, made stylish: new additions to the Sophie Conran collection

This season our much-loved Sophie Conran for Burgon & Ball collection sees exciting new additions, including many new large garden tools. The addition of these new large tools, including cutting tools, creates a comprehensive gardening range. So whether you're lopping branches, digging over your borders, or trimming the topiary, you can now do it in designer style! It really is serious gardening, made stylish.

Known for its appealing and very popular gift options for garden and home, our Sophie Conran range features beautifully designed hand tools in stylish gift boxes, which have earned something of a cult following among keen gardeners.

These new additions for 2020, however, take the collection in an exciting new direction. Taking centre stage in the new line-up are the large tools joining the popular Sophie Conran range for the first time; a thoughtfully-designed digging fork and digging spade, a lopper and a hedge shear, created to make tougher gardening jobs easier for gardeners of smaller stature.

Immediately noticeable with the spade and fork are the T-grip handles, very unusual in the UK, which make it easy to use a double-handed grip for better purchase while digging. Both tools are slightly shorter than most digging tools, which also keeps weight to a minimum. The narrow profile of the spade head slides easily through the soil, and the tines of the fork are shorter than most, for reduced soil resistance.

The new high quality hedge shear and lopper feature drop-forged high-carbon steel blades, a production process giving superior strength and sharpness to the metal. Lightweight FSC ash handles with ergonomic grips and branded brass plaque minimise weight and lend a distinctive look. Overall, these new large cutting tools deliver exceptional comfort, balance and lasting cutting performance.

In hand tools, a sleek new polished topiary shear complements the super-stylsh secateur and precision secateur from the range, with the familiar all-steel construction and simple brass lock. A long, thin trowel is ideal for planting, digging, and weeding – a multitasking tool which is sure to win a lot of fans. And an ultra-slim pocket knife is the perfect size for a smaller hand, perfect to pop in a pocket.

Add a touch of designer style to your gardening this year, with the exciting new additions to our Sophie Conran for Burgon & Ball collection.
