Burgon and Ball trowel and fork, RHS Ground Works Collection

Burgon & Ball Royal Horticultural Society endorsed trowel and fork presented in a beautifully printed Ground Works Collection box. Formed from hardened and tempered stainless steel, delivering strength, durability and rust resistance. Both tools have FSC hardwood handles, painted earthy red, and the trowel head is engraved with “You cannot plough a field by turning it over in your mind.”  The heritage illustrations are taken from the back catalogue of Burgon and Ball tools, dating from circa 1912. The illustration of 'Gnomen-figuren' is taken from the 19th Century book 'Album furTeppichgartnerei' on planting design by Karl Gotze and forms part of the RHS's Lindley Library.
