Cute and practical, the Mini Claw aerates and loosens soil, increasing the effectiveness of watering and fertilizing. Also helpful for weeding, the Mini Claw has three angled tines and a vinyl grip.

Its unique corkscrew spiral action means that there is no bending or lifting, so you are protected from undue muscle and back stress.

Its quality design also helps to avoid damaging or cutting vital root systems. The mini claw size is excellent for flower boxes and small, hard-to-reach areas. It is built with rugged, all-steel construction and hardened steel tines for strength, and it has vinyl comfort-grip handles to make your job easier. The mini claw is comfortable and efficient--your garden and your back will love it.

Art & Practice of Gardening (VHS)

Monet's Garden at Giverny (VHS)
The garden that inspired 500 of Monet's paintings is given a horticultural and art history spin. The artist's presence is felt through interviews with Monet's step-grandson and his wife, who speak about how the father of impressionism--who died in 1926--used the garden during the second half of his life to further his art. The resurrection of the garden, neglected after the death of Monet's widow, is followed in painstaking detail as the production presents a year in the life of the garden, which sees half a million tourists annually. The careful botanic study also includes thoughtful analysis about the use of the colorful garden as a palette for Monet's work. An artist, a photographer-historian, a Japanese garden designer, and gardeners weigh in, helping the viewer to see the cornucopia of nature as perhaps Monet did. And, as one artist says, "What wonderful eyes to see it through." --Valerie J. Nelson
