IN THE GARDEN THE HOE IN THE GARDEN [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 4 November 1926

IN THE GARDEN THE HOE IN THE GARDEN It Is doubtful whether any tool, ex- cepting the spade, is as useful in the garden as a good steel hoe, at least one being absolutely necessary even in the smallest garden. It is equally doubtful whether many vvielders of this tool get the utmost amount of good that it is possible to obtain by a proper and Intelligent system of using It. Hoes, )lke/many other things, vary considerably In shape and size, and in most gardens several sorts will be use- ful, and where this is the case the dutch hoe and the swan-necked draw hoe must be included. There is gainsaying the fact that where soil is fiequently hood during hot weather the moisture, is detained therein to a much gi eater extent than it is in soil that is left untouched simply because the natural evaporation from the soil is cheeked, and moisture preserved by a layer or mulch'' of fine soil. Were the hoe used more frequently and the hose or water can less better ,results in many instances would ...
