Product Details

At the farm, we depend on this versatile rake for tilling soil and clearing away weeds and debris. The 5″ hand-forged stainless steel head is sized to fit easily between plantings, and the long Ash wood handle allows ample leverage, even for taller gardeners. Overall length: 65″

This tool was selected from the Sneeboer line of durable, heirloom quality tools on a visit to England's Great Dixter gardens. Made by the renowned Dutch company since 1913, each is hand forged from top-grade stainless steel then individually shaped, polished, and sharpened. These hard-working instruments are fitted with premium wood handles and are designed to last for years.




The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Small cultivating rake

I have 6 or 7 Schneeboer garden tools -- each a special gem.This one is special for a number of reasons: 1) the head is narrow so it is easy to get between plants, 2) the tines are sharp so pulling weeds is very easy, 3) the handle is long so a person of average height with a bad back does not need to bend as much. FYI all the Schneeboer tools that I have came with lacquered or varnished handles. I sanded it off with a 320 grit sandpaper and then used a fine artificial sandpaper (labeled for "between coats") and applied several coats of a mixture of 1/3 boiled linseed oil, 1/3 turpentine and 1/3 hot water (not boiling). If you are fussy, use Danish finishing oil. In either case, you'll never wear a pair of gloves again! I try this once or twice a year.
