Essential Tools Etc

There are some essentials you will need to get things growing and help you do all of the preparation work!

For the Balcony / Pots:

  • Secateurs – a good sturdy pair for pruning back old growth, keeping things trimmed and tidy as well as dealing with any broken stems without having to tear them off (which could damage the plant).
  • Plant Labels – or you won’t remember what is what! I found these helpful when learning the names of plants! Also, when growing bulbs you know what to expect and that you have planted in the pots!!
  • Dibber – to make holes to put in small plug plants or seedlings


For the Allotment:

  • Fork
  • Digging Spade
  • Border Spade
  • Rake
  • Wheelbarrow
  • Cultivator (optional)
  • Tarpaulin (optional)
  • Buckets
  • Tea & Biscuits (essential!)
