I got mine in a job lot at an auction, 26 tools ranging from hoes to trowels and spades, a lawn mower and what I really was bidding on was a wheel barrow, all for 16

Found a lovely vintage long handled onion hoe today in great condition in an antique market priced up at 12 and I got it for 10. Well pleased

next door to the centre is  a garden centre where a new one was priced up at 29.50 with the steel not half as good as the vintage one

in a boot sale last weekend I had a older  bulldog make 4inch dutch hoe for 2 , a quick sanding down of the handle a  coat of liniseed oil and its ready for use

look out weeds
