The Subpod Grow Bed bundle is a garden bed, worm farm, compost bin and garden seat all rolled into one! Composting food waste and growing fresh produce has never been easier.
The bundle includes a Subpod Classic Compost Bin/Worm Farm, Subpod Grow Garden Bed, Subpod Compost Aerator, two 100% natural jute worm blankets and detailed instruction manual.
The Japanese sickle is an affordable, lightweight, and essential piece of kit for any gardener who is harvesting, chopping down plants for composting, mulching or cover crops.
A sickle can be used in tight spaces where a scythe is not practical. Cuts and chops directly to the base of plants. Easy cutting down to the roots of weeds. Also useful for harvesting your vegetables.
The curved blade has a serrated edge for easy cutting and the timber handle sits nicely in the hand.
