      Disadvantages

      The quality is pretty good for the money

      Ah, many an hour has been spent on my allotment with an array of tools, and among the most useful and most used, is the Dutch hoe.

      When I first started out on my plot I didn't have many tools, so the whole job was a tad trickier. I gradually built up a selection of tools though, the first was a fork (also Kingfisher), and the next thing I bought was the Dutch hoe.

      I went for the Kingfisher brand because, to be honest, it is in the cheaper end of the market and I was skint (still am!). That said though, the quality is pretty good for the money, I think I paid about £5 for it last year. I don't expect it will last as long as some other well known brands, but it's not getting seriously heavy use, and I look after it well, so I would hope that it should serve it's purpose and last a fair few years yet.

      The tool itself is quite light to carry, and will fit in the boot of most cars.

      It can be useful in the garden for edging, but I also tend to use it to jiggle over the top layer of soil to prevent weeds that are threatening to peek through, it's much easier with a long-handled tool as it reduces the amount of bending required, and it makes light work of the task altogether.

      I would recommend a Kingfisher Dutch hoe, pretty good quality for the price, as long as you don't mistreat it, like leave it out in the rain, or get heavy handed with it. For reasonably light work, it's great.

      Rotavator next! :-)
