Toil in the Soil in Style


Gardener's tool set, £24.00


Leave it to the folks at the V&A to apply one of William Morris's most celebrated fabric designs to gardening tools. Cray, designed in 1884, was the most expensive pattern produced by Morris & Company as it required 34 different printing blocks. Most designs required only a fraction of that -- many of them as little as two. But despite its high price, Cray became one of the firm's best-sellers and was produced in numerous colorways.



Secateurs, £18.00
