Who says gardening is for squares? Not us. We think it's rather trendy these days. All that pruning, digging and aerating is incredibly therapeutic. What's more it's not just fusty old Percy Thrower-types (ask your parents) who enjoy trimming their borders; fork-wielding presenters such as Charlie Dimmock and Kim Wilde are helping to make gardening quite cool. Well, ish.

The trouble is the tools of the trade haven't changed much since the days of Capability Brown (ask your great grandad). And that's where our Funky Garden Tools come in. These high quality implements are nothing new in terms of functionality, but they look about a million times more interesting than the dreary forks, trowels and secateurs found in most garden sheds. And gardening is all about aesthetics, isn't it?
Fully licensed by the V&A Museum, Funky Garden Tools are adorned with an attractive William Morris floral print entitled Daisy. 'William who?' we hear all you non-arty types ask. William Morris was one of the principal founders of the Arts and Crafts movement, and a celebrated designer of patterned fabrics. So as well as getting to grips with a few highly practical gardening tools you get to gawp at an iconic pattern that helped define an era. Or something like that.
Crafted in coated aluminium, Funky Garden Tools are as hard-wearing as they are eye-catching, and they make ideal pressies for style-conscious gardeners who have yet to succumb to Titchmarsh levels of tedium. In fact these arty tools are so appealing you'll want to leave them on show, not hide them in the hedgerow.
Whether you go for the secateurs (with Teflon-coated heat-treated blades), the hand trowel and fork, or all three, you can be sure you're buying some of the finest gardening tools your garden has ever tussled with. So get ordering. You dig?
