A serrated garden trowel has many uses. For example, it is ideal for large areas of hard dirt where you need to divide and remove large clumps of soil or grass, because the blades will quickly divide and the thinner ground will hold the pieces together until the next treatment. A serrated trowel is useful for prepping before you plant your garden. You can also use it as a shovel when you’re just beginning to till your garden.
In addition to prepping the area, a serrated garden trowel is a great tool to have in order to divide large areas of land for planting. If you have several plants that are all about the same size, you can separate them with a forkful of spades. The width of the forkful can be different, depending on the width of the plant you are tilling, but in general the wider the plant, the wider the part of the forkful you will need to divide it with. Using larger spades can actually damage these smaller plants by breaking their roots, but with a serrated garden trowel this damage is prevented.
A serrated garden trowel is one of the easiest garden tools to own, and you can choose from a variety of styles and designs. For example, some have serrated edges, which allow for easier division of soil. Others are larger, with larger blades, and there are ones that simply look like a smaller shovel. You can find these in most hardware stores, garden centers, home improvement stores, and some places that sell gardening supplies.
Some people like to use vintage-style, weird looking, and oddly shaped serrated garden trowels. One such item is called the crazy sitter and has a blade that looks like it is shaped like a bird sitting on a stick. It’s funny and whimsical and it’ll make even more weird and wacky hair quotes as you go through your vegetable tilling.
If you want to have a bit of fun with your garden and don’t want to grow anything, you can divide your plants into two groups. First, you can separate ferns from other plants and put them in a basket. Add water and let them sit there for a day or two and remove them. When you re-pot your ferns, they’ll be so happy they’ll probably spill plenty of water all over the house and into your flowerbeds.
On the other hand, you can group different types of ferns together. Put one group inside the other group. Ferns usually don’t do well together with other hardy plants like boxwood or ash trees. Some conifers do well with ferns and some do not. If you use the Serrated Garden Trowel to divide your plants, you’ll have a healthier, prettier looking garden all the way around.
Here’s the final step: After you divide your plants, you have to decide what you are going to do with them. Do you want to sell them or simply keep them? If you are like most people, the answer is keeping them. But what if you want to use them for the purpose of dividing your garden? Here’s what to do then.
First, take all your ferns and place them on your deck or patio. Then, take your serrated garden tools and stand in front of your plants. When the serrated edge of the trowel is approaching the plant, grab the fronds with your strong hand. Cut the stem apart so that the roots ball can slip down the frond and into the basin.
If this is your first time trying to divide ferns or any other plants by these simple gardening tools, you are making a great start. It’s a good idea to keep a sharpening tool on hand as well. The blade is very important here because it will be cutting into the stem and the core of the plant. This will loosen up the entire plant and allow you easier access to the roots.
Here’s what to do after dividing the garden. Place the divided pieces of your garden soil in a large container. Fill with water and let the soil settle. When it is ready, divide the plants again by hand, just as you intended. Repeat the process until you have no more un-attached fronds.
Many people that like to try to grow plants from seed struggle with this one. They have trouble with the fact that the smaller seeds remain in the center of the soil and are difficult to divide. When you divide ferns or any other plant by this method, it is important to remove the seeds from the center and the frond or petals from the leaves. You can use a pestle to accomplish this.
