I enjoy celebrating the humble spade. Here it is again, this time with a delicate lace pattern in the surface. The quintessential gardener’s tool, mine spends most of the year outside ready for action.
Life-size and frost-hardy, this spade reaches 105cm. It can be mounted in any of a few ways: secure it upright with part of the blade in the soil; hang it by a hook on a wall; or here it is shown with an oak plinth for free-standing or indoors.
