It takes teamwork to create quality gardens - teamwork and quality partnerships.

Clifton Nurseries has a long and enviable record of creating and maintaining quality gardens - right back to 1851! We're delighted that along the way we've received much recognition and numerous awards for our work.

None of this could have been achieved without the use of quality gardening tools and products. We're proud to say that we use and supply only the very best quality gardening tools - a requirement that is met in 'spadefuls' by the carefully-crafted exceptional range of Premier Bulldog Tools. Founded in 1780, Bulldog Tools make all their forged tools in the UK and are quite rightly proud of their British heritage. The Bulldog quality range of gardening hand tools includes spades, shovels, trowels, forks, rakes, axes, mattocks and soil sieves. 

Made to Last

Clifton Nurseries Bulldog Tools for Digging

Just like the gardens we carefully design and build, and just like the quality plants we supply, Bulldog Tools are carefully crafted by true experts and are renowned for their longevity.

The forged garden spades and forks have heads made from a single piece of steel.

FSC Certified ash is used to make the shafts which are buried deep within the socket.

These professional garden tools exceed British Standards and are backed by their lifetime guarantee.
