Burgon & Ball
Burgon & Ball was established in 1730 and ever since then has continued to make outstanding quality tools and requisites for the gardener.

Our flourishing factory still stands on the banks of the river Rivelin in the heart of Sheffield - where we have been since 1862. You can navigate straight to the main Burgon & Ball website by using the toolbar above.

Growing your own fruit and vegetables is a great thing on so many fronts, from showing children where food actually comes from, to reducing food miles and watching in awe and wonderment at the miracle of nature at work - every day.

Together we've devised this plan to show how much can be achieved in a relatively small amount of space and to try and inspire as many people as possible to have a go at growing their own.
