Your seeds are in hand. Your plot is sketched out. What comes next? Carson Arthur, the Toronto-based landscaper and TV personality, shares his must-haves for kitchen-gardening success

Water wise

A wand with a gentle spray is best for watering delicate plants; this one has an ergonomic handle and comes in vibrant shades of green, purple and blue. Colourwave 16-inch Deluxe Soft Spray Watering Wand, $22.99 through www.homedepot.ca.

Pyramid scheme

Install a handsome obelisk, such as this five-legged copper model, for trailers and climbers, placing it in the centre of your garden. If you have two or more plots, situate one in each for French-style symmetry. Copper pyramid, $189 at Lee Valley (www.leevalley.com).

Easy on the knees

This is a trusty sidekick for any avid gardener – it can be used as a stool, then flipped over for cushioned knee support. Continental Kneeler/Sitter, $27.99 through www.homedepot.ca.
