Green and Growing: Here are gift suggestions for gardeners with local roots
Today, the Spear Head Spade is available throughout the U.S. — including some local independent garden centers such as Mackey’s Agway in Colchester, Van Wilgens in North Branford, and Natureworks in Northford. I have relied on this spade for three years and give it a perfect “10” for light weight and the deep, precise cuts it makes.Visit www.spearheadspade.com or call (860)-688-3280.
Ratchet-cut pruners: The pruners manufactured and sold by Florian Tools, Southington, work like a car jack, using leverage to increase the power of the pruning cut while reducing hand strain. Result: People with arthritis, carpal tunnel, or diminished hand strength can continue to prune. I’ve used these pruners for three years and give them high marks for lightness, ease of use, and a good cut. Call (860) 628-9643 or visit Riggios on Rt. 153 in Essex and Pequot Plant Farm on Wheeler Road in Stonington.
Finally, many independent gardens centers offer herbs, flowers and greenery year-round, grown and cared for by their staffs. It’s a good bet the gardeners in your life have a soft spot for anything green, especially during these dormant times. Happy shopping.
