The Garden Boss by Bucket Boss is a versatile bucket apron with 12 pockets for storing a multitude of gardening supplies. Editor Russell Mullin says, “I love having the ability to keep my most-used hand tools in one place. You’ll find thoughtfully sized pockets that can accommodate your pruners, trowel, plant markers, seed packets, and more. There’s even a clip for your gloves, and the bucket can hold larger supplies, weeds, or your harvest. It really maximizes the versatility of a simple bucket.”

The Garden Boss has uses outside the garden too. “I’ve found that this bucket apron works perfectly for my bee supplies as well. I have places for all of my tools, with room in the bucket to keep my bee suit and smoker fuel. I place the lid on it to use as a seat, and I could even use it to capture a swarm in a pinch,” Russell says.

This handy organizer is made of a tough ripstop fabric and fits most 5-gallon buckets.
