John Miller craftsmanship brought to you by My Garden Spade

We are a start-up company manufacturing traditional garden tools. Based in Marlborough, Wiltshire, our roots go back to a market garden in Jersey and even earlier with our manufacturing partner from Huddersfield in Yorkshire.

We want our customers to love their garden tools as much as they love their gardening. Our grandparents treasured their tools because they were built to last, did the job and were nice to hold. We simply bring together one solid piece of steel and one solid piece of wood and put them together the old-fashioned way.
 

The Products
 
 

Nothing has ever compared to the old fashioned “D” handle. It fits beautifully in the hand; when polished with bee’s wax, you will want to hold it and admire it every time.

 

If you want to treat your loved one or a friend to a unique, high quality gardening gift, we can engrave their name on the handle. 

Above all, think “Quality” with a single piece of forged carbonised iron, which straps onto a continuous piece of ash wood with no weak points. It ages gracefully with a gentle patination of the steel into a timeless friend. That is why we call it a “garden tool for life”.

We have a duty to our gardens which often harbour a more diverse ecosystem than the surrounding countryside. If the tools are not up to the job, we increasingly turn to chemicals, but you really can dig the nettles out with our forks. Try for yourself (but please leave a few for the butterflies!)

    I often ask why people fill their gardens with ornamental flowering trees when they can have flowers and tasty fruit? (Two for the price of one!) - February 25, 2019
