  • Speed Hoe comes top of the class

    The highly respected publication Garden News has conducted a trial of slicing hoes.  According to Geoff Hodge, writer, broadcaster and product guru, The Haxnicks SpeedHoe has come out top of the class.

    The Hoes

    The hoes were tested for quality, comfort, performance and value for money.  The SpeedHoe got 5 stars on all counts.  It was especially noted for how sharp the edges were all round it, greatly increasing the ease of use.  As a result it beat off stiff competition from bigger brands with big price tags to be crowned the best slicing hoe in the trial.  As much as other hoes had their benefits they all scored less in at least one area.  One proud owner commented that it was "the best hoe on earth" and we aren't going to disagree with her.

  • Grandpa Haxnicks says Make way for EasyPath

    Haxnicks EasyPath

    Good Morning Gardeners!

    February is a good time of year for you to take stock of what is in your sheds and greenhouses, to clear out the old and make way for the new. This is not a phrase that I am entirely comfortable with, but it leads me on nicely to giving you news of something new from Haxnicks. I am very pleased to tell you that Haxnicks EasyPath is poised to appear in garden centres any minute now.

    Haxnicks EasyPath PE Wheelbarrow

    It is a fold-out pathway that goes between rows of vegetables, herbs, flowers or strawberries so that you can work between the crops without having to use planks of wood and, what’s more, because it is made of a tough outer weed barrier with a strong internal structure it keeps the weeds at bay and can also be used to protect wet lawns from wellies and wheelbarrow traffic. It has a carry handle and loops along the edge to peg it down, and when you want to put it away it folds up neatly into a 30cmx30cm square.

    Haxnicks New Garden Products at GLEE

    Grandpas are entitled to a little boasting, so I’ll also tell you that Haxnicks EasyPath won the 2014 New Product Award at GLEE trade show in September. It will soon be available at a garden centre near you and with various online retailers, or you will be able to find it here on our website. There will be lots more exciting Haxnicks news to come and I will keep you in touch.

    I hope you enjoyed hearing from our new friend The Potty Gardener earlier this week, I’m just off to visit her and give some advice on seed potatoes…a 'chit'-chat if you like!

    Goodbye for now.
    Grandpa Haxnicks
