What is it? Garden Tools from 1914


My shed is full of garden tools that I don’t use very often and some that I don’t use at all. Looking through the 1914 Suttons catalogue I saw that some tools have changed very little whereas others look very odd.

Have a look at the image below and see how many names you can put to the images. It may be stating the obvious but items 64 to 72 are variations of the same thing – but what thing?

About Lis

Our Suttons Blog comes from Lis Wallace, Head of Customer Service here at Suttons since 2002. Living on the edge of Dartmoor Lis has a large and “somewhat tricky” garden split across several levels but with the bonus of a stream tumbling through and a large, fertile veg patch. Across the blog Lis will share some of the knowledge she has gained over the years from her father, from working at Suttons and also from her own trial and error. Storm the Jack Russell is bound to chip in now and then. That’s what terriers do!
