Competition time!

Win a Burgon & Ball Weed Slice!

We’re hitting ‘weed critical mass’ over on the allotment. Our usual, regimental regime of weed control* has been thrown into chaos, thanks to the abundance of Euro football on the telly. We’ve been too busy watching England’s team of millionaire weaklings flop flaccidly out of the competition to bother with any gardening duties, so this weekend will be spent furiously beating back bindweed, ground elder and buttercups with our current weapon of choice, a long handled weed slice.

We love our weed slice. We love the way the small cutting head can work between plants in tightly packed borders. We love the way the weeds squeal with pain as the sharp steel cutting edge slices through their soft fleshy bodies.

In fact, we love our weed slice so much, we’ve managed to wrestle TWO more off the folks at Burgon & Ball, and we’re prepared to give them away to TWO lucky readers!
