Unseen Heroes – Burgon and Ball

There are many suppliers who give generously to the Love Your Garden team and never get a mention during the show.

Burgon and Ball have supplied every show of the series with some of the finest wooden handled spades, forks and hand tools known to man. We certainly put them through their paces during the build and they didn’t let us down.

Burgon & Ball began manufacturing in 1730 in the industrial heartland of Sheffield and are passionate about quality – many of the most important product attributes are ‘hidden qualities’ that only emerge when a tool is used. Qualities such as ensuring an edge tool cuts months and years down the line, not just when it’s brought home from the shop.

The secret behind this lies with the hardness of the metal – all Burgon & Ball edge tools are made from high-carbon steel, heat treated to the optimum hardness (measured in Rockwell values) for that tool.

Today Burgon & Ball are the largest manufacturer of sheep shears in the world. They are also at the leading edge of garden tool and accessory innovation & design – in recent years launching some of the best received new products in the industry.

  • Burgon & Ball tools are designed to exceed both British Standards and performance expectations.
  • The Burgon & Ball brand has a unique 280 year pedigree and is widely respected among serious gardeners and farmers.
  • All Burgon & Ball tools are covered by a no-quibble 5 year guarantee against any manufacturing defect.

Always on hand – we’ve found Burgon & Ball tools in quite a few of the photo’s from the builds..
