Find a steel-shafted fork

Levering out perennial clumps puts a great strain on tools as well as gardeners; forks break easily where the steel meets the wooden handle. If you can find an 'unbreakable' fork with a steel shaft it will be too heavy for everday use but ideal for this. Look for a modern tool with an expensive guarantee, or scavenge for something discarded like this old road-menders fork, £1 from a tip.
