I review these products during tasks I personally carry out within my garden on a regular basis. Using the right product or tool for the job makes the difference of doing it the easy way or the hard way, so I really value a product which can make my life easier.

I am hoping that garden related companies will send me ‘products’ to test and evaluate. However I must stress that I will not be anything but fair and make no promises to these companies other than to tell the truth. Many of the products here are what I have already purchased for my own gardening use and are happy with.

You may ask, what are your qualifications? Well Judy and I have opened our garden through the ‘Australia's Open Gardens’ for the past 10 years, we won Gardening Australia’s 2009 ‘Golden Trowel’, have appeared on the ‘Garden Guru’s and ‘Gardening Australia’ twice and on various other television shows. We give presentations to garden clubs on Sub tropical gardening and open our garden for bus tours. What is more important is that we have learnt from our gardening mistakes.

Best Axe

Let me first say that I am a big fan of Fiskars products, even before I started this website I had tools such as compost fork, tree pruners and secateurs.
The best thing about the Fiskars brand is that they are made in Finland and are good quality not like some of the junk that comes out of China.
I now have an Axe to review, like all other Fiskars products it feels good to handle and is very well balanced which helps when chopping.


The very sharp  blade has a non stick coating and  is rust free.
The  reinforced fiberglass handle is virtually unbreakable but very light which is very good if you are doing a lot of cutting.
I have used it to cut out a tree and it made light work of what could of been a tough job.
This axe comes in four different sizes from chopping size to splitting cutting size.
I was happy to review this product as it is probably the best axe I have ever used.
