Spring is right around the corner, and if you’re like us, you’re making big plans for the garden. A reliable garden truffle will come in handy for most of your to-do list.

These clever baskets lend themselves to transporting your cuttings, local produce or any weeds. They’re also ideal for your tools, so you can keep your trowel and pruning shears handy while strolling around your beds.

However, not all trugs are purely practical – get creative and use one as an accessory on your windowsill or on open kitchen shelves to hold dried flowers.

There are plenty of options, from practical designs to make gardening easier to pretty personalized baskets that are as decorative as they are useful (and make great gifts for Mother’s Day or Easter).

Here we’ve rounded up some of our picks of the best garden trugs for 2022.

Best Wicker Garden Truffle

Handwoven willow wicker trug

Premium Wicker
notonthehighstreet.com

£39.95

Prestige Wicker are, you guessed it, wicker specialists. We love this traditional looking willow cart, and also have our eye on a log basket in the same style.
Cut:
H9/25cm x L45cm x L25cm

The best hand-woven garden rug

Hand woven custom garden rug

Dibor
notonthehighstreet.com

£26.00

This cable number is too pretty to use for weeding. Instead, use it indoors to display flowers or store fruits or vegetables. We think it would also make a lovely gift – as an added touch, add a message to the wooden gift tag.

If you like this style, Dibor, a family business based in Yorkshire, offers a variety of handwoven trugs.
Cut: H22cm x W25cm x W35cm

The best garden pot for vegetables

Strainer

Handy, this trug doubles as a colander, so you can wash down harvested produce hassle-free. When rinsing vegetables, the handle folds down for easier access. An additional bonus? It’s currently half price.
Cut:
H12cm x W12cm x W31cm

The best custom garden rug

Custom garden cart

wheelbarrow wood
notonthehighstreet.com

£35.00

Barrow Wood, based in Dorset, manufactures decorative wooden garden accessories, including this customizable trug engraved with a floral design. We think this would make a great Mother’s Day gift.
Cut:
H18cm x W22cm x W30cm

Best Hardy Garden Truffle

Galvanized trick

Burgon & Ball/Sophie Conran
farrar-tanner.co.uk

£28.00

This one is part of the Burgon and Ball collaboration with Sophie Conran, and it’s a great way to store all your gardening kit in the shed. Or you can use it to carry your tools to the housing estate – have your name engraved on the beech handle for a personal touch.
Cut:
H13.5cm x W21cm x W33.5cm

Best garden trug for practicality

Hip trug

Burgon & Boule
onbuy.com

£9.99

It’s the most convenient design we’ve seen: clip it to your waistband, belt or pocket, leaving your hands free to pick produce. With a 1.5 liter capacity, there’s plenty of room for cuttings, and it’s dishwasher safe, so easy to clean.

There are several options to choose from, including sets that include knee pads and knee pads.
Cut: H15cm x D16cm

The best eco-friendly garden pot

Natural wood stuff

Burgon & Boule
farrar-tanner.co.uk/

£37.00

Here’s another tip from Burgon & Ball. Made from sustainably sourced poplar wood, it’s the largest cart on our list, so all your fresh produce (or weeding!) can fit comfortably in it.

There is, however, a medium size option, if you prefer.
Cut:
L27cm x W57cm
