Osslating Hoe

A most popular tool! The double action Oscillating Hoe has an outstanding reputation for being fast and effective.  Also called the stirrup hoe.

How to use: Stand in an upright position holding the long handle. Move the hoe backwards and forwards using small movements (10-15cms) so that the hinged bladed moves back and forwards in the soil. The blade is parallel to the ground and cuts the weeds off at the root.

  • The blade of the oscillating hoe works parallel to the ground.
  • Weeds are undercut by pushing/pulling the sharp blade through the top layer of the soil.
  • Effect – weeds cut off and soil surface loosened for better air/water penetration.
  • Blades are made of high tempered spring steel to stay sharp.
  • Hoe widths available: 125mm & 85mm (other on request).
  • Blades are screwed on for easy replacement.

Pruner designed for smaller hands


SeScretures for small handsDesigned for those with smaller hands who may prefer a smaller, lighter pruner.

It's comfortable to use yet every bit as sturdy and powerful as any other of the Felco pruners.

This great tool is ideal for small pruning work such as grape vines, shrubs and young trees, it is also the first choice of many florists. The anvil blade is screw-mounted for easy replacement. The shorter blades facilitate closer cutting to the stem of the plant.

What to do in July

Mid summer July –  Have you done it all ?

Some gardening you could do.

  1. Flowering shrubs which have finishes such as Wygelia, Syringa vulgaris’Madame Lemon’ (Lilac), Philadelphus ( mock orange), in order to enjoy the flowers lower down consider pruning to reduce height.
  2. Geraniums which have finished flowering cut back some will reflower again in early autumn.Keep dead heading flowers such as cosmos, dahalia’s, sweet pea and roses for repeat flowering.
  3. Sow salads and spinach for winter and early spring crops.
  4. Cut out fruit stems raspberries to their base, and tie in new canes for next years fruit.
  5. Thin apples after the ‘June drop’.Leave two or three fruit in each group for larger fruit.
  6. Take cuttings such as camellias, heathers , penstemon.
  7. Feed your tomato plants and remove axil growth on cordon plants.
  8. Keep an eye on newly planted plants for watering. The wind is very drying.Plants do better with a good soaking once a week, as using a hose can sometimes just give a useless sprinkling. Plants prefer rain water, so if you are using mains water allow it to sit for 48 hours in order for the various additives to evaporate.
  9. Plant any annuals you have sown from see, such as Nicotiana,Holyhock and Lunaria annua (Silver dollar plant).Also visit your garden centres to see what is flowering now to fill some of your planting  gaps.
  10. Take photos of your garden to help you make changes in autumn and spring.
