A.M. Leonard Tools
Palladio Garden is pleased to carry A.M. Leonard Tools. Most come with a lifetime guarantee and are exchangeable right in the store at Palladio Garden’s horticultural center at 2231 Central Avenue. We are particularly fond of their nursery spades, which come with either wooden handle, a composite handle, or in all steel. The composite handle is our favorite because it is the perfect balance between weight and toughness. With just a little flex in the handle, it is less likely to break or bend during use.
We also adore the A.M. Leonard bypass pruners, comparable to the more expensive Felco pruners, but at a much lower pricing point, still with replaceable blades and a lifetime guarantee.
Our tools are a little more expensive than the tools you buy at big box stores, but they last a lot longer and are much more enjoyable to use. To learn more about A.M. Leonard Tools, check out their website here: https://www.amleo.com/
Our A.M. Leonard tools are usually the same price you pay in the catalog and sometimes even less.
The best times to plant in Memphis are in the spring and the fall. But, if you must plant during July and August, use SoilMoist. Though SoilMoist can be helpful any time of year, it when planting in the heat of the summer. SoilMoist is a water absorbing polymer that slows the evaporation of moisture from the soil. Studies have shown that it makes for better developed root systems and healthier plants when added to soil. You can pick up SoilMoist in Palladio Garden’s main building at 741 South Cox or at our horticultural center across the street at 2231 Central Avenue.
