Ten Tools for Urban Gardeners
Buckets and baskets
A city gardener needs a practical device to carry tools, plants, soil, compost, and seeds around in. The simpler the better. A simple, colorful rubber garden tub is lightweight, durable, flexible, and easy to use in the garden.
More chic wicker baskets are great for cutting flowers and herbs. There are metal wire baskets that are great for harvesting vegetables. You can simply wash off the soil from your produce right in the basket. When in doubt, there’s always the 5-gallon plastic pail. They are sometimes free and as versatile as your imagination.
