With its turned beechwood handle and pointed bronze blade, Mira is the favourite tool of one member of the Implementations team (Castor is the favourite of the other member). Its small size means it is handy for container gardening and bulb planting, and any weeding or planting in the flower border or veg bed. We also use it to extract deep-rooted weeds such as dandelions, as the long narrow blade cuts deeply into the soil without disturbing the surrounding plants.
