An effortless way to keep the weeds at bay

I think most gardeners will agree that weeding is a hateful task, rather like painting the Forth Road Bridge.

It’s a welcome change when a product comes along that will deal with the unwanted guests in a flash.

The new Express Hoe from Burgon & Ball has a pivoting blade which finds the perfect angle for biting into the soil, for effortless weeding.

Sliding easily through the soil on both push and pull strokes, Express Hoe swings through weeding in half the time, allowing the gardener to move quickly onto other, more appealing, tasks!

Burgon & BallOptimum sharpness

Express Hoe’s double-edged blade has been created in high carbon steel for optimum sharpness and edge retention and is very thin to move easily through the soil with minimum effort, chopping smoothly through weed roots and shoots.

The angle of the blade has been extensively researched, and Express Hoe really does bite into the soil in both directions to dramatically speed up weeding; unlike some hoes where the cut is easy in one direction, but the tool stops dead on the return.

Designed to retail for £32.99 and with a 10-year guarantee for peace of mind, Express Hoe is a truly time-saving addition to any garden shed.
