We've gathered the essential tools that any gardener, regardless of skill, should keep handy.

We only recommend things we love. If you buy something through our site, we might earn a commission.

We aren’t necessarily suggesting an ancient-style obsidian hand ax (though it is an option), but a few basic tools will make your planting, weeding, and harvesting that much easier.
