Summer Splash! WEDGIE Gardening Tool Review & Giveaway




With summer in full swing, many of us will be spending lots of time outside in our gardens, getting our hands dirty.  Whether you're planting a vegetable garden or planting some beautiful flowers to enhance your backyard, there is a new tool you are going to want to have handy at all times. The WEDGIE is by far the world's best gardening tool.

The WEDGIE is a bright yellow, 7 inch long planting tool made of durable plastic with an easy to grip handle. This amazing tool allows you to make holes for small plants with a simple back and forth, side to side motion.  It displaces the soil rather than digging it up.  With the WEDGIE, you can transplant your plants from the containers to your garden in seconds and get just the right fit every time. It makes gardening easier for people with arthritis and other disabilities. Its easy to clean, saves time, and helps you create the perfect outdoor paradise.



I found that the WEDGIE was effective, user-friendly and fun. Using it cut my gardening time in half which is a great thing for me since I do it more to save money on veggies than for fun. And since I am six months pregnant, the less time I spend out in the heat, the better.   For more on the WEDGIE, be sure to head over to One2Try and see what Rita thought of it.  Spend less time on your knees and more time admiring your garden with the help of the WEDGIE.

One lucky winner is going to receive a WEDGIE for their own garden. To enter, just visit the WEDGIE website and tell me something you learned.

I like that it's erogonomically helpful for wrists. I've had problems with my wrists for years and this would be a great alternative to my old spade.

I learned that the Wedgie tool "is 7" long and has an ergonomically-designed handle. Fingers do not have to close tightly around the easy-to-hold knob handle and the wrist stays in the level/neutral position when planting", making this an "arthritis-friendly tool". altern147 [at] yahoo [dot] com
