  • To use a hand fork efficiently, use the right technique. Use your body weight to help use lift the soil. Don't try to lift the fork with your arms alone as you will tire quicker or even injure yourself.
  • Don’t forget that the soil below your plants is full their roots which can spread both horizontally and vertically below the plant and may cover a larger area than the actual plant and its foliage. Be careful not to damage your plants by damaging the roots or unseen stems (especially in spring).
  • Clean and dry your hand fork after each use to prevent rust and damage.
