 A pick-me-up for ponds
A garden pond should feature aquatic plants, not debris. OASE EasyPick pond pliers allow gardeners to retrieve leaves and the occasional errant critter from the water without disturbing plants or koi—or going in the
drink themselves. The pliers are 4.5-feet long, and their telescopic shaft expands to a full 6.6 feet. A rubberized handle provides a strong grip. $51,
  Ergonomically friendly
H.F. du Pont was passionate about plants, selecting the finest specimens for his Winterthur Gardens. Today, anyone looking for inspiring tools will find them at the estate. Right now, its retail team is stocking these Heaven in Earth lightweight 8-inch quick-release bypass pruners, featuring aluminum handles with ergonomic grips and a blade and hook made from hardened
and tempered high-carbon steel. $32,
A helping hand
Gardening is dirty work that’s hard on hands. Crabtree & Evelyn Ultra-Moisturizing Hand Therapy works as hard as gardeners. Its super-hydrators, macadamia-seed oil, shea butter, and herbal extracts like cooling cucumber and antioxidant-rich rosemary leaf guard against environmental stresses. $24 for a 100-gram tube,
     Enjoy a cold one
Plants and shrubs need water to stay healthy—and so do gardeners. The
REDUCE COLD1 34-ounce tumbler keeps water thoroughly chilled on the hottest day. A three-in-one lid accommodates a sturdy straw, and the tumbler is outfitted with dual vacuum-insulated walls. Like roses, it comes in lots of colors. $23,
For a rainy day
Rain barrels have been around for centuries, storing H2O for dry spells. These days,
the barrels don’t rot. Made from resin,
the Good Ideas Rain Wizard Barrel doesn’t let water from your downspout go down the drain. A screen allows water in, but not insects or debris. The space-saving flat back sits
right against a house or garage. Starting at $75,
