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 opened our garden through the ‘Australia's Open Gardens’ for
10 years. We now open to support a specific charity. 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.

Long Prong

I have started a fairly large new project and have finally a chance to use my 'Long Prong' garden tool.
This project will have a park bench sitting within the garden and will be planted with gingers and Costus.
It will probably be my final large garden project as there’s not a lot of lawn left to steal from and anyway Judy has threatened to divorce me if I take any more lawn away.
Just survived this one by the skin of my teeth.
It has certainly made life a bit easier, instead of hammering with a crowbar this tool lifts the pavers and rocks and makes it much easier to remove.
It is also useful for removing stubborn roots.
These are an invention of Peter Nicol from Toowoomba and you can only buy them on-line, not sure but I think I paid around the $70 mark for mine.
There are four models including a lady Prong, it is pink of course.
Thanks to Judy who was the video operator.
