Never in my life have I been so excited to see the buds of the trees. After using nature as a refuge from endless zoom calls and the safest place to visit loved ones for a year, we connect more deeply with nature. If you feel like going out into the garden (whether it’s your yard or a collection of pots on a windowsill), this is the time to get your garden tools so you don’t have to dig holes with a serving spoon for June.
With the right tools, you can properly care for your plants, which will make it easier for you and more fertile for your leaf babies. Shop for 10 options below.

1. Tula Plants & Design Niwaki Mainichi Secateurs
Secateurs are a necessity for gardening. “Simply put, you need it to remove dead stems or leaves, which will allow new growth to grow,” says Rachel Mayo, the plant expert behind @growinthelight. “When I prune my plants, they grow bigger and faster. It’s similar to cutting the dead ends on your hair so it can thrive. “
2. Bosmere Kent & Stowe stainless steel pot ladle
A trowel is great for digging and moving the ground. This Bosmere trowel is equipped with measuring tines so you know exactly how deep you are digging, which is great for planting onions.
3. Tula Plants & Design Niwaki Garden Snips
Because secateurs are smaller than secateurs, you can use them to get really precise cuts. “They’re good for propagation, while scissors are bigger and better for pruning stubborn twigs, stems and leaves,” says Nick Cutsumpas, the plant trainer and town planner behind Farmer Nick.
4. Bed Bath and Beyond Heavy Duty Gardening Apron
Protect your clothes from dirt and keep your tools close at hand with this sturdy garden apron. It has seven pockets of different sizes to stow your goods.
5. Sophie Conran Everyday gardening gloves
Keep your hands clean with these gardening gloves – you can thank us later for saving the time scrubbing to remove dirt from under your fingernails.
6. Tula Plants & Design industrial watering can
Watering cans make caring for your plants a lot easier. Use it indoors so you don’t have to bring every plant to the sink to drink, and use it outdoors for potted plants that you don’t want to drag your hose to.
7. Plantx moisture meter
The time of year and the amount of light your plants receive from day to day will affect how often and how much you should water your plants. Take the guesswork out of a moisture meter, which checks the moisture levels in the soil.
8. Bosmere BosNeeleze Luxury Garden Kneele
If you want to spend hours in the garden digging and planting, this padded pad is a lifesaver.
9. Tula Plants & Design Spray Bottle
A spray bottle is ideal for your plants that crave moisture. “I keep a glass spray bottle filled with water and essential oils so I can spray my plants daily,” Mayo says. “I even spray them twice a day sometimes.”
