I have a few favourite garden tools that make my life a little easier in the garden. I have collected these over the years, never paying a huge sum of money for them, but not buying the cheapest either. They are more than sufficient for my needs as I am not a huge gardener (yet) and I suppose, if I get really good at this gardening caper, I will indeed invest in better tools. But for the moment these will do.
A shovel and a garden fork, both bought from ALDI, 7 years ago for $20 each. They have been more than sufficient for my needs. I like them, as they are light weight
Loppers and clippers for keeping larger plants and palms under control. Lovely hubby keeps them sharp and oiled so they are in good working order

2 x hand clippers, the one on left was inherited from hubby's Gran, a "sharp pointy thing on a handle" its great for getting in between the pavers and tight spaces to dig out weeds, another "sharp pointy thing with a handle" I use this for planting out seedlings and seeds, a hand fork, another mystery object that I use for weeding, a hand shovel and a well worn pair of gardening gloves. The spray bottle contains my home made weed killer and it works a treat!
Any gardeners out there? What are your favourite tools for the garden?
