This copper hand trowel is a narrower shape meaning it is handy for container gardening and bulb planting, weeding or planting in the flower border or veg bed. It is also great for extracting deep-rooted weeds such as dandelions, as the long narrow blade cuts deeply into the soil without disturbing the surrounding plants.

Staying free from rust, but ageing with a graceful bronze patina, these beautiful tools are especially great for coastal gardeners and for everyone else - copper is not magnetic so it will not disrupt the electrical fields in the soil. Since using copper tools, folks have found the amount of slug and snail damage in their gardens has greatly reduced.
Slugs and snails are the banes of many gardeners existences. The disappointment of disappearing seedlings after so much effort to bring them into life and all that is left is the tell-tale slimy trail, is heartbreaking. Slugs and snails have no natural magnetism because their blood is based on copper whereas we have iron flowing through our veins, with iron being magnetic and copper non-magnetic and highly conductive, using copper tools literally helps to preserve the magnetic energy field and vibrations in your soil, having the effect of a creating slug barrier as well as being long lasting and harder wearing!
The tool heads are made of solid bronze (copper with tin). Other parts are pure copper, brass and other copper alloys with responsibly-sourced European hardwoods including ash, beech or lime.
A few words on the benefits of copper - distinguished by its rosy gold colour, it does not corrode easily, it is antimicrobial, it is non-magnetic, it is recyclable, since the earliest times, copper items have been melted down and re-made into new ones. About 40% of the copper in use today is recycled. So your chosen tool may once have been part of a Roman Centurion’s breastplate!
Bronze, copper alloyed with a small quantity of tin, is harder still – up to four times the hardness of pure copper. It is used for the blades of all of the tools. It was the first alloy to be created by humans. It has a slightly more orange colour than pure copper, which has a pinkish hue
Copper or Bronze? Bronze is a copper alloy – mostly copper with a little tin. This Weeder is bronze (95% copper). The extra tin gives it the sharpness – and the orange colour. This Copper Dibber is pure copper, a pinkish colour.
