Product Review: Twigz

Wednesday, 28 May 2014

As you all know I have very green fingers (and not just when I have been painting!) I love trying out the latest plants, products and books on the market and telling you what’s worth buying. Recently I have been trying out a range of garden tools aimed at cool kids like me. Here’s what I think of them…

I was sent a colourful range of products as you can see from the pic I took above in my own sunny garden. There are certain requirement for children’s gardening tools – here’s what I look for:

So do Twigz meet these standards? Here’s my thoughts on the various items I have been trialling for the last month or so…

Metal Bucket

I love this bucket. First of all, it’s a gorgeous green colour (like my fingers). It also comes in other funky colours. It’s made from a really robust metal and is the perfect size for littlies like me to carry veg or fill with weeds. It’s also not easy to knock over (I have tried!) Price is around £5.49.

Watering Can

One of my favourite jobs in the garden is watering. I love watering the greenhouse, the pots and especially my feet!This watering can is really sturdy and made from metal. It has two handles making it really easy to carry when it is full. It has a rosette which can screw off if you wish and it holds 1.5 litres of water, a perfect amount for mini gardeners. And it comes in 4 funky colours – I have awesome orange!

Hand Tools

A good selection of hand tools is essential for any experienced gardener like myself. The clever people at Twigz have developed a set of 3 which includes a hand fork, a trowel (or spoon as I like to call it!) and hand rake. As with all the Twigz products they come in lovely, bright colours. They are also made from durable one piece plastic so they aren’t going to break anytime soon.
Price is around £7.99 for a set of 3.

Mini Greenhouse

In your pack you get a tray, a lid and 30 little coir pots to plant in. It comes in lovely orange and is perfect for growing seedlings on your window sill. I have grown lots of lovely vegetables and flowers in mine. Price is around £6.49.

Gardening Gloves

I was also sent a pair of gardening gloves. I can’t really comment on these yet as my hands are so teeny they are too big for me. They look good quality and I will certainly get lots of wear from them when I am bigger. Gloves are around £3.49.
So, I can conclusively say that Twigz garden equipment is brilliant and well worth the investment. I will be using mine for many years to come (if I can stop Mummy from stealing it that is!)
Happy gardening!
