Between a rock and a hard place
29 June 2018
Weeds that germinate in these tight, moist crevices quickly send roots deep in search of nourishment available there. Removing weeds from cracks is one of the most difficult and frustrating of garden chores. That is why, of all your garden tools The Speedweeder is indispensable.
Speedweeders are shaped a bit like a straightened hook of a clothes hanger. The hook has rounder edges, so it isn’t sharp. The tool is designed to slide deeply into a crack and pull out weed roots without cutting through them. The hook at the tip helps to pull out more debris. If, like most gardeners, you’ve spent hours trying to remove weeds from cracks with a table knife, you’ll never part with your Speedweeder once you get your hands on one.
