The dandelion foe: It pulls up deep rooted weeds like dandelions with very little effort, making this important garden ritual a little quicker and easier. The simple Pinebush Weeder has a turned beech handle that is comfortable to use. It includes a leather loop strap for hanging in the garden shed. The steel shaft and cutting end are weather resistant and sturdy. The tool is narrow enough to get in close to uproot only the weeds, without disturbing the roots of crops and flowers. Be sure to dig weeds in that critical period before they go to seed. A single dandelion flower can produce up to 172 seeds, so getting the early is essential.
