Customer service

After trying to locate a product for some considerable time the manufacturer mentioned this firm as a stockist. The service was excellent, my questions were answered straight away and the product was delivered promptly by 48 hour tracked. I cannot stress enough the excellent service provided by this company.

Excellent customer service

I came to Creeper & Knotweed after being let down by another store. They were helpful throughout and showed very clearly that they value their customers. I will definitely be using them again.

Monty Don's trowel

Will definitely use them again

Based on 148 reviews

Bought this tool for my husband's birthday as he had seen Monty Don using it and wanted one. Says he didn't know how he managed without it. Brilliant for planting plants and nice sharp point for splitting plants. Very well made and sturdy. Would highly recommend this tool to everyone.

Excellent service, excellent product

Had fallen in love with my stepdaughter’s Sneeboer Dutch Style Planting Trowel, and ordered one for myself from Creeper and Knotweed. The trowel doesn’t disappoint, nor does the prompt service from Creeper and Knotweed.

Simply beautiful

Simply beautiful and a pleasure to look at something so simply beautiful

Superb Quality

Really impressed with the two-pronged weeder. We have a heavy clay soil and this really does the job . Very well packaged and speedy delivery.


This is a solidly constructed work of art

Beautiful and easy to use

I chose this as I had seen Monty Don use it on Gardeners World and it looked straightforward. It is a beautiful piece of workmanship.

Sneeboer heart shaped trowel

Excellent service in every way. The trowels were beautifully packaged and the delivery was speedy, very impressed.

Ideal gift for a special person

Beautiful trowel, hand crafted, and know they last as I have three Sneerboer tools which were well worth the outlay.
Excellent despatch/delivery which brightened up someones day.

Excellent weeding fork

This is a superb tool. It cuts through the soil easily and is really robust, unlike a lot of cheaper weeding forks. Sneeboer really are excellent tools and well worth the money.

Sneeboer are the best!

The quality of the tools by Sneeboer is superb. Creeper and Knotweed were a pleasure to deal with.

Lovely birthday gift

I purchased this trug as a birthday gift. The recipient loves it and says it's extremely well made. Very good service, too.

Just the job

I’m creating a new garden and needed some new tools. The planting trowel makes the job really easy. It’s a good size and comfortable to use. It’s definitely a high quality tool and worth paying the extra for

Heart shaped trowel

This trowel is truly excellent. Perfect shape and slices through soil and weeds with ease. The flat part conveniently firms the ground after planting I wouldn’t be without it! Delivery was impressively quick!

Quality Stuff

Bought as a present for my husband. It arrived well packed and with quick delivery. The trowel looks amazing. Strong and of good weight. The metal looks sharp and solid. Worth the money.

Nice trowel

Bought as a birthday present for my father-in-law.
He was very pleased.
You could even say he digs it

At last...

… a hand fork that will not bend at the slightest bit of tough soil or root. Given most forks cost around £20 and last about a year before bending (if you are lucky) I reckon this is a very safe investment! Really high quality, lovely to use.

Strong hand-forged tool

I’m very impressed with the quality of the sneeboer planting tool. The handle makes it comfortable to use and the blade design makes it easy to slice through the hardest of soils. A great addition to the gardeners armoury of tools. The service and delivery were also excellent. A great buying experience.

Not just a leaf rake!

I purchased this to help me scarify small patches of moss in my lawn rather than wielding my large lawn rake. I can report that it works very well and I am very pleased with my purchase. I will, of course, also use it to rake leaves when needed!

Every Gardener should have one.

The Sneeboer weeding trowel is our go to tool when we have a general garden tidy; seems great for a multitude of jobs. Decided to order this longer handled version as my wife decided she must have one too. Will be ordering another as a gift for my sister in law now. Great service too from Creeper and Knotweed.
