I was a retailer for years, firstly as a small independent and, before my retirement, as Retail Manager for a very successful charity. When I left, there were 7 shops with a huge warehouse which also supported a retail outlet and we kept 250-300 volunteers and approx 20 paid staff very busy indeed. It was a great challenge and I just loved every minute.
So – what I am saying is that retailing is in my blood, and it’s not surprising to anyone who knows me that sooner or later I would get back ‘into the game.’
We have not selected a huge list of gardening tools to stock on our site. In order to make using our store a straight-forward operation we have decided to concentrate only on garden tools that are related to composting. Over time, we will add more products, cut some product out and all the time we will be reading and reviewing so that you will always have current information available to allow you to make well-considered choices.
We think that the best garden tools are those that have evolved for a specific purpose
and although it is not difficult to find substitutes for any one tool, there is no doubt that it is a damn sight easier to rake leaves on the grass with a leaf rake rather than to attempt to sweep them up with a broom. (No asides about sweeping them up off a concrete path, please!) So buying tools that are well-designed and sturdy will definitely ease your task and make the whole composting thing that much more enjoyable.
I always think it a good plan to get started using what you have on hand and then, if things go well and you make a decision to carry on composting, you can decide just what gear you need to invest in.
Of course, if you are a serious ‘shopper’, what can I say? Just give you a big welcome and say “Go to it!” I guess.
