Have You Got Your Trowel?

In keeping with our mission of providing support to gardeners of all genres, DGC is proud to make available seven styles of Wilcox Trowels. This company, founded in 1967, manufactures garden implements that are built to last; in fact, with occasional sharpening, this may be the last trowel you’ll ever buy. Unless, of course, you’d like an additional size and model. They are made in the USA and are backed with a lifetime guarantee. Built of stainless-steel in a one-piece design, they have sharp points for easy cutting and are easy to clean. The blades are marked with a gauge for accurate depth measurement. The 202 model, a 14 inch trowel, was selected the Best Garden Trowel in 2015 by the New York Times.

The trowels range in price from $11.00 to $20.00 and may be purchased from Detroit Garden Center at any of our planned events or by calling 313-259-8383 and making arrangements to come to the office.

Do you appreciate the Detroit Garden Center and what we continue to preserve as well and what we imagine growing? Would you like to participate
or support DGC in some way but the timing is not quite right? A donation is always appreciated and it keeps you in our "growing" community.
