Professional Seeder - Lee Valley Tools

Lee Valley Tools

It is difficult to plant tiny seeds such as poppy, impatiens and lobelia by hand. Even small fingers are awkwardly large, unintentionally grabbing 10 or more speck-sized seeds at once and then depositing them en masse. Not only is this traditional method wasteful, but it also creates extra work by making it necessary to thin seedlings. This seeder picks up and releases even the tiniest seeds one at a time with ease. Akin to a turkey baster, it works with a simple squeeze-and-release action…

Giant Weed Torch - Lee Valley Tools

This is a great way to get rid of weeds on patios or between paving stones without resorting to chemicals. It's also effective for removing ice from walkways.

The original torch produces a continuous flame when ignited, suitable for covering larger areas. Also available with a flame-control squeeze valve on the wand that lets you…

Soil pH Meter - Lee Valley Tools

With large graduations and a brightly colored indicator float, this rain gauge is easy to read from as far away as 50'. Measuring up to 5" of rainfall, the plastic tube is calibrated so that the float rises 4 1/4" for each inch of rain – even a light shower registers clearly.

It even helps prevent blossom end rot. The two-part design makes it easy to set in place after the seedling is planted. Set on the soil under the plant, the red crater will increase yields and make the fruit set earlier. (Research done by a number of universities has shown that red reflects a certain spectrum of light…

Prowler Owl - Gardening

Lee Valley Tools

Flexible wings and whole-body movement give this scare owl a dynamic realism that makes it particularly effective for large gardens. Designed to look like a hunting owl, it has large wings that move to attract the attention of birds and other small pests and scare them away. Adding to the illusion, the wings and tail are printed with realistic plumage and the hard resin-plastic head has lifelike eyes. Made of weather-resistant material, the wings and tail flutter in the slightest breeze. The…

Nut & Fruit Gatherer - Gardening
