Looks to me something like my Chillington Hoe.   I have had one for a number of years and they are absolutely brilliant.   Your wife will be showing you her muscles in a month or two!!   I also have one of their Canterbury Hoes - brilliant as well.

Nice wrapping & good pressie - your wife will be pleased.
I ordered a hoe on-line recently and then couldn't open the front door when I arrived home - it was posted through the letter box and jammed between the outer door and the inner door. After some violent kicking from a neighbour it shifted and we managed to get in without breaking the door down. The moral of the story - buy from the local garden centre instead.
Have a lovely Christmas.

I really can't imagine why anyone would try to post a hoe through the letter box.
The mental picture I have of the scene will keep me chuckling all day.

It made me chuckle too!  What person in their right mind would put a hoe through a letterbox!! 

I hope your wife enjoys her plot and the new hoe to go with it. 

A Merry Christmas to you both.
