As the leaves fall and the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness is well upon us, we thought we’d take the opportunity to let you know what is happening in the world of Bulldog Tools!
Pedigree Rabbiting Spade ‘Best Buy’
The latest issue of Garden News magazine features our new Pedigree Rabbiting spade rating it as a ‘Best Buy’. The spade was chosen by writer and broadcaster Geoff Hodge as the Best Stainless Steel Planting Spade with Geoff commenting that the ‘rounded, sharpened, pointed edge makes it perfect for digging, even in compacted, hard soil’. You can get the latest copy of Garden News at your local newsagent and for more information on the Pedigree Rabbiting Spade, please click here.

IOG Saltex at the NEC in Birmingham is the premier trade show for the sports, amenities and landscaping trades. Our professional range of Premier garden and contractor’s tools are always popular at the show and this year was no exception with our stand drawing plenty of interest from visitors last week. Many groundskeepers and estate workers use the Saltex show to stay up to date with developments in the equipment they use and Bulldog are extremely proud that our tools are used by these professionals at so many prestigious sporting venues and historic homes around the country.
Our new range of Pedigree garden tools continues to prove popular with garden retailers and gardeners alike. We are pleased to announce that as of last month Crocus, the UK’s biggest gardening website, added thirteen Pedigree tools to their comprehensive online product range. Their selection includes stainless steel forks and spades as well as trowels, weeding forks, a soil scoop and cultivator. You can see all the Pedigree tools available at Crocus here.
