Hand Trowel

A small hand tool used for digging small holes for planting seeds and digging up pesky weeds. The trowel should have a narrow, sturdy blade that will cut into the soil easily.

Long Handled Garden Tools | Hand Garden Tools | Garden Rake | Vegetable Garden Supplies | Farm and Garden SuppliesGarden Rake

A garden or ground rake is used for smoothing and leveling out the soil. It should break up large chunks of dirt and remove stones and other debris, which can prevent plants from growing strong.

Garden Hoe

Similarly, a garden hoe can be used to create holes for planting seeds or breaking up clumps of soil.

Garden Gloves

Gloves shield gardeners from thorns, poisonous weeds and more. They can also protect skin from pesticides or other chemicals.

Kneeling Pads

Gardening can be hard on the knees. Knee pads provide cushioning and support, which can help reduce pain and fatigue.

Long-Handled Shovels

A long-handled spade with a straight-edged, flat blade is ideal for digging holes, cutting roots, removing weeds and making edgings.

High-quality, pencil-pointed stakes can mark separate rows of plants or support climbing and sprawling plants, such as beans, peas, tomatoes, cucumbers and squash. Eaton Brothers offers stakes made from North American hardwoods (Oak, Cherry and Maple), which is easier on the environment.

Jute Twine

All-natural jute twine can also be used to designate rows in a garden and secure tall plants to stakes or trellises


As vegetable garden supplies go, this is definitely a nice-to-have vs. a must-have but give your back a break from hauling soil, tools and other debris with a rugged wheelbarrow.

Soaker Hose

A soaker hose offers an efficient flow of water directly to a plant’s root zones. It is ideal for watering flowers, vegetables and looped around trees and shrubs.
