The Mira Trowel has a pointed bronze blade and a turned beechwood handle.
It’s narrow blade means it is handy for container gardening and bulb planting, and any weeding or planting in the flower border or vegetable bed.
The Mira can also be used to extract deep-rooted weeds such as dandelions, as the long, narrow blade cuts deeply into the soil without disturbing the surrounding plants.

Blade: 6 1/2,ins long and just over 2 ins wide (16.5cm x 5.5cm)
Weight: 180g, 6oz
