One of those tools that any serious gardener will find that they would be lost without.It is brilliant for planting lots of perennials. Usually the choice is between a border spade and a hand trowel. The one is too heavy and clumsy, the other too insubstantial and gives you a sore wrist. The handspade is used with two hands which is ideal when you are on your hands and knees: power is directed effortlessly and the small head means that you can work in tight corners. The Dutch are rightly regarded as makers of the finest gardening tools. De Wit have been around longer than anyone. They started in 1898 and the 4th generation of De Wits are now in charge of the business; one is a trained wood turner, the other trained as a blacksmith. De Wit forge their tools from carbon steel in the traditional way. Carbon Steel is naturally tougher than stainless steel and is not prone to metal fatigue. De Wit also burnish their steel. This not only helps to protect it for longer but gives it a patin

We believe that the Spork is destined to become one of the must-have garden tools and will become an essential part of every gardener's tool collection. In October 2008 it was voted 'Testers' favourite' by 'Which' Gardening' magazine.In the 'Which' Gardening' trial the Spork was pitched against 9 other border tools by a team of professional gardeners. The trial was conducted over 4 weeks and all tools were assessed for a range of tasks: loosening and turning soil, clearing weeds and planting perennials and shrubs. Seven of the eight Which' testers would happily buy a Spork and 3 would even swap their conventional spade for one. The serrated cutting edge was sharp and easily cut through soil and small roots. The Spork is good for digging, planting and turf edging. "It's an ideal compromise between a spade and a fork -I would definitely buy one" said one tester. "It's great for clay/loam soils, good for digging and turning over soil, and for breaking up compacted ground," said another.

Advantages: Great weather all year round. Gentle cooling breeze, lots to do. Disadvantages: You have to come home!
...I have just returned from a fortnight long holiday on the gorgeous sunny island of Fuerteventura - one of the Canary Islands. I travelled with my 2 children ages 10 and 7yrs old, and we all had a wonderful time. I will try to do some justice to this beautiful island in this review.
I travelled there on an all inclusive package deal from Thomas Cook at the end of June, and stayed at a 3* hotel...
Advantages: Great hotel catering for both families and couples Disadvantages: Don't mention the war :)
...In the past my wife and I have been pretty relaxed about where and how we holiday. We've done all inclusive, B&B, Half Board, City Breaks, Beach Holidays, make it up as we go along etc.
However we now have a 5-year-old boy to look after and so our holidays have to be thought through in advance.
This year we chose Fuerteventura as our holiday destination and chose the Monica Beach Hotel...
Advantages: amazing landscape has to be seen to be believed Disadvantages: the public transport is a bit patchy in places but theres lots locally to take up interest
...Fuerteventura is unlike any place I've been on holiday before. One of the Canary Islands, its off North Africa, which makes it about a 3 1/2 - 4 hour flight from the UK but in my opinion is worth the trip.
When my boyfriend and I were there we stayed in Caete de Fuste. Unfortunately I cant remember the name of the apartments. There are plenty restaurants and pubs, there's plenty of things...
