I do not own this particular sickle, but a sickle is a really good tool to have. I often prefer cutting the unwanted plants around the really small tree seedlings leaving them around as mulch instead of pulling them. This way I have less chances of disturbing the tree’s roots.
I have used the hand held the 4 soil blocker last year, but I might start using a standing one if I scale the number of seeds I start. I have found the soil block to be the best way to start small seeds in a controlled way.
The one I have was bought in the US from Johny Seed’s, but they are also available on Amazon.ca, and I think that with the exchange rate and shipping it might be cheaper there.
