The tools for the job

Visit any garden centre this weekend and you'll be bombarded with the very latest in gardening tools: retractable hoses for ease of watering, hoes and even swoes for quick weeding. If there's a job to do in the garden, someone's invented tool or a chemical to help you. Author, historian and keen gardener Jenny Uglow talks to Katy Hickman about the hard-graft.

A Little History of British Gardening by Jenny Uglow is published by Pimlico ISBN  978-0712664943
