"As a gardener I have always dreamed of creating a range of garden tools and accessories. I believe that tools should be functional and beautiful, and make each job a pleasure.
One of the problems I face as a women when gardening is that my hands are generally too small for standard tools. My designs specifically address this issue and I hope will add to the joy of gardening.
The better the tools, the easier the job."
Digging Fork - Sophie Conran
This digging fork is a high performance garden tool, but elegantly combines it with understated designer style. Ideal for gardeners of smaller stature, the fork is slightly smaller and lighter than some others. The T-shaped handle makes it easy and comfortable to use a double-handed grip for added digging power.
The tool head and socket are made of mirror-polished stainless steel, giving rust resistance and clean movement through the soil. The head is a little narrower than some fork heads, and the compact tines are more slender, so it’s ideal for working in tightly-planted borders. The narrow profile reduces the fork’s weight and also allows the head to slide through the soil more easily. Plus, of course, the volume of soil removed is also more manageable.
The fork handle and shaft are crafted in FSC®-certified ash, a lightweight option, and a beautiful brass plaque on the shaft carries the Sophie Conran for Burgon & Ball logo. For peace of mind, this garden fork carries a ten-year guarantee.
