Favourite Tools - the Ho Mi

Short handled Ho Mi
The Ho Mi  or Korean Hand Plow is a traditional Asian gardening tool.

It is highly versatile. With a Ho Mi you can:

  •  use it to dig holes for seedlings and bulbs
  • make rows for seed planting and fill the rows in once the seed is planted
  • loosen soil around plants 
  • dig out weeds

They are recommended for people with arthritic hands. I've had mine for years and have found mine really useful.

At the time of writing the Sandy Mart in Sandy Bay is selling Ho Mis for only $10 which is a great price. Otherwise you can order them from online from Gundaroo Tillers
