Is this a long handled hand fork - or a short handle digging fork?
Regardless of how you want to refer to it what we've found is that the Sneeboer Great Dixter Planting Fork is massively useful - especially when working on your knees or in raised beds. The longer handle length (42cm) makes it perfect for digging out plants or harvesting root vegetables. Whilst its overall size (62cm) keeps it easy to wield in tight spaces in the border.
The Great Dixter Planting Fork has four tangs and is 12 cm wide and 14cm long. Made from stainless steel.
