Founded in 1804, the Royal Horticultural Society is the UK's leading gardening charity and is one of the world’s leading horticultural organizations. The society works to promote horticulture through its gardens around the UK, and through flower shows such as the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The Society has been a trusted source of gardening advice, the latest research, and recommendations on best practice in the garden for over two hundred years, with generations of gardeners looking to the RHS for inspiration and expertise.
Burgon & Ball’s ranges of cutting tools and stainless steel garden tools were endorsed by the RHS in 2012, and we have worked together closely ever since. Our tools are used by the gardeners at the RHS gardens around the UK, and we have worked in collaboration with the RHS to develop specific tools requested by RHS gardeners. All cutting tools in the Burgon & Ball RHS-endorsed ranges come with a ten-year guarantee.
In addition, we have collaborated on popular new product ranges the fluorescent, Easy to Spot tool and glove collection, developed in response to requests at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show for ‘unlosable’ tools.
Sophie Conran is a designer, gardener, cook, author and entrepreneur, and is the only daughter in the renowned Conran British design dynasty. Since launching the Sophie Conran for Burgon & Ball range to great acclaim in 2010, Sophie has worked with Burgon & Ball on a wide range of products, winning numerous awards. In particular, the collection of Sophie’s garden tools has been designed to be slightly smaller and lighter than most, and enjoys a near-cult following among keen gardeners.
