Lyshack said:In my family, at Christmas time, the adults draw names so we only have one adult person to buy for, which keeps things from getting out of control. Unfortunately, that means in a few days, some cousin or sister-in-law or older nephew is going to be asking me for a "Christmas List"... things I want for Christmas. I stink at making such lists.
So I'm asking my fellow garden nerds for a little help coming up with ideas. What are your favorite garden gadgets and tools? They don't have to be tools... weather gages, bird feeders, garden art, but tools also. Like I could really use something to help me with dandelions and thistles. And of course, any tricks or gadgets you use in dealing with daylilies would definitely be welcome.
Here are a couple of my favorites. A while back, I bought a Hori Hori knife like this one:
It's GREAT for digging holes for planting in garden spaces that are cluttered with shrub or tree roots. It also has a handy ruler on it when digging bulbs.
And a couple years ago a friend of mine sent me one of her favorite tools, which looked kind of like this one: https://www.gardentoolcompany....
This is great for shallow or new weeds. For example, my neighbor bought a really fancy but messy Morning Glory. At least once a month, I have to clear a carpet of its seedlings from my adjacent garden bed. This tool is great at getting under the roots and loosening the seedlings so they can be raked away.
What are your favorite garden gadgets?
I love it so much that I bought 5 just in case.
