Advantages of the seeder for me
It allows me to access the weeds along the perimeter of my flower beds, shrub beds and grass.
Sturdy, efficient, well-made and durable tool
I am a professional gardener, and I can safely say that this is the best weeder I have ever used. It is well constructed, with a long handle and a wide, forged steel tip, with which it is easy to dig up even the tough perennial roots of plants like Dandelion and Pokeweed. I have also often used mine for planting seedlings and perennial divisions. I have bought three in my life, and had the first for fourteen years (of almost daily use), until I unfortunately lost it. I bought two to replace the one I lost: one for use, and one as insurance. They are well worth the price, and have been manufactured by the same company since the nineteenth century.
2-for-1 tool: harvest asparagus the right way, and trim out weeds just below the surface! 1.3-inch x 3.375-inch blade; 15-inch overall length. A lifetime tool. Top-quality hand-forged carbon steel for long wear, rough use. Just right for asparagus and deep weeding. The longer length shaft gets under the plant and into the ground to reach tender stalks. Wood handle. Weight 0.7 lbs.
