Here at Ashton Glen we are CLOSED for the period of the COVID-19 Lockdown. 

During this period I can continue to take orders (via the website, email or phone) as I work alone (here at home) with my ever on-going nursery work. 

PLEASE NOTE:  Orders will NOT be dispatched / delivered until the lockdown is lifted in 4 or so weeks time. 

This nursery is a non-essential business and freight usage during this period is also non-essential.  

In the meantime I wish you all a very safe time and I hope you get out into your garden and enjoy time there.

Niwashi Gardening Tool - Right Handed

Niwashi Traditional Japanese Garden Tool - Right Handed Tool

This would have to be the best garden tool I have ever ever used. I am a horticulturalist by trade with a large garden and I have used a lot of tools! Not any more however. I was given one of these by a friend and I fret badly when I cannot find it. My Niwashi is over 6 years old and has been run over by a lorry, bent back into shape (by a man and a vice) and I carried on without any tears. Still going.
I have arthritis in the wrists and this tool truly allows me to "carry on" terrorizing weeds. It is designed for use in such a way that it allows your wrist to stay in one rigid position, without further aggravation by preventing twist.

Unlike western garden hand tools the Niwashi uses an angled blade that cuts into the soil as you pull it towards yourself. A more comfortable and natural action. The sharp blade makes light work of breaking up compacted garden beds.
Once you've tried it, you will be hooked. Its reputation speaks for itself - just don't lose it, I hate to see gardeners cry.

High carbon steel blade - 12.5cm long.
Wooden handle - 26cm long.
Total length 33cm.

Made in Japan.  Please note that this is the genuine Japanese Niwashi Tool and not an inferior replica.
