A New Beginning...
Posted on 08/03/08 | Posted by The Fat Gardener

During 2005, I became increasingly frustrated with the quality of tools in my local garden centres. Many of these centres had opted for Chinese made tools that although cheaper and more profitable for the garden centre left a lot to be desired in terms of quality. This set of circumstances led me to the decision that I could try to do better - and Quality Garden Tools was born. The next stage was to research which tools were best for keen gardeners like me. I visited Kew , Wisley and had lots of chats with professional gardeners to find out which brands they relied on. The more gardeners I met, the more I heard the same names mentioned: Bulldog, Felco, Silky, Tina, Bahco (formerly Sandvik) and power tool brands like Hayter, Husqvarna and Echo to name but a few. Slowly but surely I was able to develop relationships with many different suppliers and increase the range available on both the website and in our catalogue. The business continues to grow and we now supply many of the professionals we originally turned to for advice!

We still try to offer the very best quality available if possible, but stock other ranges which offer good value for those with tighter budgets. We also know where all our tools are made and try to support manufacturers who reduce or minimize the amount of energy used in the manufacturing process. As the Quality Garden Tools journey continues we are always trying to improve our service and the range and quality of the products we stock.
