A new RHS-endorsed collection of specialist container gardening tools

Containers are an easy and hugely popular way to make an impact in any space, however large or small the garden – and this season we've introduced a new RHS-endorsed collection of specialist container gardening tools to help retailers help their customers enjoy this trend.

The trend for container gardening is universal and growing; today’s smaller homes and busy lifestyles mean there’s often not the time or space for a large garden, while  more extensive gardens also make the most of container gardening’s flexibility, simplicity and style to create an appealing focal point.

This new RHS collection has been created in response to gardeners’ requirement for tools specially designed for use with containers. Together they offer the perfect way to plant, weed and maintain container displays quickly and easily.

The range includes a container weeder, with a compact head and inwards-facing blade to protect plant stems from accidental damage, which is ideal for scraping off moss, weeding and turning over the soil. There’s a container scoop, with an innovative collar to prevent spills and mess, and its generous size makes it a faster filler!

Completing the line-up there’s a container root and transplanting knife. A dished, double-edge blade which is serrated on one side makes this multi-purpose knife ideal for sliding round pots to release the plants within, making holes for planting and making tight holes to add plants to add to existing displays.

Of course, the collection is equally suitable for use in raised beds – in essence, containers on a grand scale! Here too these new tools are ideal, as raised beds also present the problem of working with tight spaces and the requirement to weed, remove moss, and separate out individual plants.

All tools in the new RHS-endorsed container gardening collection are crafted in steel with FSC-certified wooden handles, and come with a ten-year guarantee for peace of mind. With RRPs from £11.99 - £16.99, these tools retail at an attractive price point and will appeal to a wide range of gardeners.
