Excellent service

High quality trowel from a renowned maker. Feel very sturdy and should last for many years. The purchase was processed extremely fast and delivery details were excellent, it actually arrived earlier than expected. An overall excellent experience.

Beautiful Trowel

Bought as a gift, I was impressed with the quality of this trowel, lovely handle, beautiful shape, the trowel feels heavy enough to suggest it is of good quality but not so heavy that it would be difficult to use. Really impressed with the plastic free packaging and quick delivery.

Excellent quality

I bought this for my daughter who is just got her own place with a garden. I am hoping it is going to serve her well for her lifetime!


I purchased the old Dutch planting trowel for my wife who is a dedicated gardener, I am pleased to say she is absolutely delighted with it by way of quality and practicality. In terms of the actual purchase process, the service from Creeper and Knotweed was first class.


How refreshing to experience good 'old fashioned' customer service.
To find a Sneeboer stockist online and in the UK was a relief. To be able to speak to someone direct about the product and delivery was a bonus. To be updated on delivery time, by telephone, was reassuring. The product speaks for itself. I'm thrilled to have received the trowel in plenty of time to give as a present. Thank you, C&K.


Looks like it will last forever

Impressive product and excellent service

After another online dealer had let me down, originally claiming that the product required was in stock and later telling me that delivery would not be for "up to ten weeks," I turned to C&K and found them extremely helpful and prompt. I got the trowel four days later - and this despite the order not being placed until after last post prior to the weekend. The trowel was a present for a neighbour and keen gardener with a passion for Monty Don, whose favourite tool it is. I will undoubtedly turn first to C&K for all future gardening requirements.


Can't beat Sneeboer. Looks and feels good. Durable and well designed.

Wedding anniversary gift

The tools were dispatched speedily as they were required to be given as a gift .
They were as described excellent quality and received the next day from the order being made I was kept informed as to their progress through the mail system and delighted to receive them packaged in a way that was environmentally friendly . All in all a great company to deal with at creeper and knotweed.

An amazing and versatile tool for the discerning gardener. A joy to use in the garden for those who appreciate only the best. Highly recommended. Excellent service from the retailer as the tool arrived promptly and in perfect condition.

Wonderful experience

Thank you very much for this item. Received in good time with excellent customer service. Very pleased with eco-packaging and the product was better than hoped for, a wonderful gift. Will use Creeper & Knotweed again and would recommend.

Too nice to use

Haven’t used it yet, but it’s a work of art in itself 👌

Sturdy companion

Originally bought for my wife who had seen Adam Frost using such a tool on
Gardeners’ World. This extremely well-made implement has become my “Go to” companion when tackling several gardening jobs. Ideal for getting into tight spaces in the borders and so easy to handle.


If you buy this think of buying two. I bought one for myself but when it arrived my wife took ownership and I am not allowed to use it now. Great little tool worth every penny.

Great service

Ordered trowel one morning and it arrived next day. Superb tool by sneeboer, good solid tool that should last for years, beware its very sharp!

Royal Dutch Hand Hoe

Bought for a retirement gift for a colleague. Hopefully it will have many years of use. Lovely quality.

Beautiful Bird Box

I am delighted with this beautifully made bird box. The colour is gorgeous and the addition of the little mouse adds an element of charm. Really well wrapped and quick to arrive I would highly recommend this quality item!

42 centimetre spade

An extremely well made tool for the garden.
Great for when access is tight and there are problem plants to remove.
