There are certainly some good tools here. I have bid on, and been successful in getting a Chillington hoe on Ebay for 10.00.  :D



Good price M! It should have a wide neck for a strong, thick handle, in which case, you can bash just about anything with impunity...

They're great for taking the top layer of greenery off the plot before you dig!

Three prong cultivator is my favourite.
When weeds appear after turning over some soil my cultivator soon scuffs up the little blighter's. It also leave the surface looking fresh for little effort!

My RoLo, a Chillington hoe and a plastic garden chair  to cart round the plot for sitting on while I recover my puff and work out what to do next!

@vit - Canterbury fork - great to know the English name - I imported mine from Portugal and think that it's a wonderful bit of kit, especially to break up a hard pan when double digging
