This fork has been designed to loosen and aerate the soil around plant roots. This will give many plants, shrubs, and even small trees a helping hand, but roses especially get significant benefit from the treatment. Aerate in spring and autumn to improve drainage, and allow the roots to better absorb nutrients, water and oxygen.
It is extremely strong; it has been tested to a breaking strain of 90kg, compared with the British standard of 55kg.
Crafted in FSC certified hardwood, the handle has a comfortable 'Y' grip, double riveted at the base for strength. An extra-long, double-riveted strapped socket introduces strength and an element of flex at this key joint.
The stainless steel tines are highly resistant to rust, and slide easily through the soil. The twin tines are rolled, for outstanding strength and resistance to bending. Although there are only two tines, the full width of tread is retained, for comfort when digging.
The Burgon & Ball stainless steel rose fork is endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society, perhaps the highest accolade in the gardening world. Like all our RHS-endorsed stainless steel tools, this rose fork comes with our lifetime guarantee.
