Kent & Stowe spade is Gardeners? World Best Buy

by | Jan 8, 2016 | Products | 0 comments

The January edition of BBC Gardeners? World magazine has reported on the results of independent tests carried out on twelve top branded garden spades with prices ranging up to ?64.

The test score criteria addressed four key areas: handling, based on comfort, weight and fittings; blade, efficiency at digging and interaction with the foot; robustness and strength, and value for money.

The winner and ?Best Buy? scoring 19 points out of 20 was the Kent & Stowe stainless steel digging spade with an RRP of ?29.99.

Marketing manager Natalie Searle said: ?The Kent & Stowe brand was new to the market just 18 months ago and to receive this accolade from Gardeners? World by scoring more highly than other established brands they tested is extremely exciting for us. We have always been confident in our products and now the consumer can be assured of the quality of Kent & Stowe.?
