Prongcroft brings fresh approach to garden care
GTN Xtra Promotion


Prongcroft Ltd, of Nottingham, a company which brings a fresh approach to garden care and maintenance introduced The Garden Prong at Glee last September.


The Garden Prong features an innovative two-prong system that will revolutionise an approach to gardening.


It is a tool with a unique design which lends itself to aerate soil and actually remove weeds around the base of plants and shrubs without damaging the plant or shrub.


The tool head is made from polished stainless steel to reduce soil adhesion, making it easier to work.


The tool is very lightweight, sturdy and easy to use for people of all ages and abilities.


Ideal for all ages and levels of expertise, Prongcroft comes in three sizes – short, medium and long handled – making it perfect for everything from vegetable plots to patio pots.




The company also introduced the Garden Apron, which is easy to wear and can even be worn over everyday clothes.  


Features include:

  • durable materials
  • padded for comfort
  • adjustable straps
  • detachable tool/accessory pocket,
  • one size to fit all.

The adjustable straps are comfortable to wear and do not cut into the knee, as with traditional knee pads. There is also an integral pocket facility to insert standard kneepad inserts.
