Gardening gear, pared down

Ha ha yes, pun intended. What do you actually need in terms of tools as a gardener? It's easy to look through garden catalogues and see dozens of things you simply can't live without... but really you should restrain yourself because you'll need spending money on perennials that you can't live without either! Here's a list of what you really need:
  • A good quality stainless steel garden border spade with a flat sharp edge
  • A transplanting spade with a long handle that makes it easy to dig up perennials
  • A superb trowel with a stainless steel shaft
  • An excellent pairs of secateurs - it's worth spending the money on them
  • A kid's rake to get between plants - it's the perfect size
  • A excellent hose with brass nozzle
