Gardening gives great pleasure to millions of people – but it can also come with great pain. And we don't just mean when you accidentally kill any plants.

We're talking about the constant kneeling, bending and contorting yourself into unwieldy positions as you deadhead, prune and pull out weeds.

So we'd like to introduce you to this Foldable Foam Padded Garden Kneeler, which is under £20 and will come to your rescue next time you're outside brandishing your secateurs.

It has been a genuine gardening game-changer for thousands of users.

Why we rate it

This brilliant piece of two-in-one kit has thick, but soft foam padding so it can be used as a kneeler (it's adjustable so you can change it to suit the height you need). But, by switching it over, it will turn into a seat, so you can sit back and allow your green fingers to do their work in more comfort.

Its dimensions are ‎58.5 x 28 x 49cm, plus it's foldable, which means it won't take up too much space so it's easy to store.

Although at 2.5kg it's pretty lightweight, it's made from robust steel tubing so you don't need to worry about it holding your weight.

It comes with a handy three-pocket pouch for you to store your essential gardening tools so they're within easy reach while you work.

But this useful kneeler/seat isn't just handy for tackling your plants and weeds – you can also take it camping, or anywhere outdoors to use as a seat.

What the reviews say

With over 1000 four and five-star star ratings, the Heavy Duty Portable Foldable Padded Garden Kneeler has been described as a "brilliant garden aid" and an "excellent kneeler" by happy gardeners.

Its discomfort-reducing qualities have also been heralded by many shoppers, with one person saying that this kneeler not only stops their knee pain but that the handles are a useful aid to hold onto if you don't find getting up that easy, either.

Another elderly user commented that the gardening kneeler enabled her to do things for her garden that were difficult for her beforehand, while one shopper was wowed by the fact that he can now garden without his back hurting.

With yet more praise being heaped on the product like "gardening must-have" "sturdy and comfortable" "cannot praise enough" "a godsend" and "ideal", giving your garden a spruce-up this summer has never been easier – or comfier.
