Red Earth Commerce

Red Earth Commerce, an Oklahoma Electronic Commerce (E-commerce) company announced today that it has acquired the assets of The Gardener’s Friend - a best-selling, top-rated Amazon and Shopify (The Gardeners Friends (tgfproducts.com) Brand and Storefront – from The Valspring Group, Ltd. of Berwick, Nova Scotia, Canada.

“We were so impressed with what Paul has done with The Gardener’s Friend and felt Red Earth Commerce was a natural partner to carry the brand forward,” said Red Earth Commerce CEO Eric Warren. “Building on the strong foundation of the brand, its presence in multiple global markets, and the broad product line, we are confident we can carry it forward to even greater success.”



The story of The Gardeners Friend is a lot like many business ventures. Conceived by someone to solve a problem, a personal one and turning lemons into lemonade! 

Without belaboring the issue, over the past 5 years my bodily mobility has declined in a number of ways.

No one want to hear people whine about their problems so I won’t.

Suffice to say, TGF pruners were developed as a solution for people with hand mobility problems.

This product allows people to garden semi normally even after diminished functionality on their arms and hands.

It is my story as well as that of thousand others and I am proud to say we have done something for ourselves and for thousands of other who share the same disabilities.

Our first product is the TGF pruners, now live and selling on Amazon.com but this is just the start! We are actively seeking good quality and highly functional products for people with disabilities to allow them to garden.

What is you specific problem? Would you share it with us? Maybe it will be an idea for our next product (though we do have 2 more in the works as we speak).

You can find us almost anywhere on the web these days! Our goal is to build a community of people who share these problems and we are proud to be part of the solution.

We can’t cure arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome but if we can help someone with this debilitating disease to continue to experience the joy of being in the garden then our mission will have been achieved.

Here are some of the many places you can find us now! Of course this website: thegardenersfriends.com, our sales website: ergonomicpruners.com, and we continue to seek more widespread web properties to spread our message.

We can be reached at:

Paul and Nancy Grimm,
