The Radius Garden PRO Ergonomic Stainless Steel Weeder is small enough for even short gardeners to push down on, but long enough that it doesn’t kill your back if you’re tall. And best of all, it get’s taprooted weeds out of the ground in one fell swoop.

Redback does it again with a lightweight yet powerful offering with its new120vRX Lithium-Ion Cordless String Trimmer. It’s simple to use, runs non-stop for about 70 minutes (the weeds will run out before it does!), operates at 6,000 RPM to easily tackle even tall, shrubby weeds, and is highly maneuverable. Plus, it’s very competitively priced. Of all the string trimmers I’ve reviewed, this is the one I most recommend.

Tomato Success Kit from Gardener’s Supply: Product Review

This self-watering planter and support cage works well for growing tomatoes, especially when grow in the organic potting mix and tomato fertilizer that comes with the kit. The 4-gallon reservoir means that you don’t have to water as often and the fill spout is large enough to make filling the reservoir a breeze. Of all the tomato growing kits or planters I’ve tested, this is the one I like best.
