Bench Garden

Here are my gardening essentials! I know it may sound silly, but it’s really very true. When you are starting out, it’s a good idea to have basic tools in your garden shed. This No-Bend Weed Wrench is a must-have for any serious gardener: Get rid of weeds easily without risking your back!

If you have an outdoor vegetable garden and plan on harvesting the produce as well as pruning your plants, you will need a pair of good gardening shears. I would recommend you invest in a set of long-handled planter clippers instead of using those cheap plastic ones that come in all different shapes and sizes.

A set of planter clippers will allow you to cut down those pesky plants that take over your yard. The long-handled scissors in the set will also help you trim down those pesky unwanted outdoor plants. My fourth spring gardening essentials is a shovel. I can’t think of a more basic tool to have in your arsenal.

There are many different brands, shapes, and sizes to choose from. It’s a good idea to go to a local store and browse around at the different kinds of shovels they sell. You want to find something that has good value for money and is well built enough to withstand the hard work you will put it through.

Another must-have gardening essential is another long-handled pair of garden gloves. Garden gloves are essential for any gardener. It is critical to protect your hands from the harsh chemicals used in home gardening. I would also recommend investing in some high-quality gloves for extra protection. Make sure they fit you properly.

My sixth gardening necessity is the all-in-one outdoor plants tote bag. I live in the deep south of the United States and every year I get a snowstorm roll in. Having a plastic container to bring wet plant leaves and dried branches back to my house is a lifesaver.

I also have a small set of tools like this with my gardening tools set. You will be surprised how much you can carry in the tote bag. My seventh gardening necessity is a sharpened pencil. This is especially handy for cutting up stem broccoli plants for recipes. Make use of these hydroton clay pebbles if you want to add a unique look.

Cutting up stems and roots is part of the spring gardening tools routine. You don’t want to be spending hours just trying to see what needs sharpening. My ninth gardening necessity is another gardening essential. A small metal spade.

Gardening tools sets come in a few different sizes of spades. So it’s nice having a size of spade that you never use. Spades is another gardening essential. They make digging hole after hole easier.

The clematis is another tool that makes pruning easier. It has a hook on the end so you can hang it if you need to prune your grapevine. Pruning your grapevine also helps avoid disease.

A bulb planter is a must for any gardener. With all of the bulbs available today, there is a huge variety of looks to choose from. Just by changing out the bulbs, you can easily change the look of your garden. One thing that is very important to remember about bulb planters is that they should have drainage holes in them.

My twelfth gardening necessity is a clocheria. This is a flower that can be planted anywhere. This gives the gardener a wider variety of plants to choose from. Clochersia flowers are known as “the plant mother”. If you can’t find a clocheria to use, then your gardening tools will be incomplete.

My thirteenth gardening essential is a good knife. It doesn’t matter what type of gardening you do, you need to have a good knife to do it. There are several different styles of knives that are made for gardening. I recommend going to a knife store and checking out their collection of gardening tools.

My last gardening necessity is a compost bucket. This can become quite expensive, but in the long run, it is well worth it. I don’t know anyone that gardens without a compost bucket. It is important to have plenty of compost ready when you need it. The most important thing that I have found with my gardening tools is that you get quality tools that will last you for years to come.
