This stainless steel bulb planter is similar to a hand-held bulb planter but this version has a long handle and is used from a standing position - the step on the side of the cylinder allows you to push it into the ground with ease. The cylinder is narrower at one end - a clever design feature that forces the plug of soil out of the cylinder so you don’t have to push it out with your hand.
This is a solid, well-built tool that makes bulb planting an enjoyable task, especially when planting in the 100s or 1000s. And far superior to crawling around on hands and knees with a flimsy hand-held bulb planter, a hori hori or trowel - all of which quickly take a toll on your wrists, and knees. Or endlessly digging out squares of turf.
It does a similar job to the Great Dixter bulb planter - it's a pared down, slightly lighter, and less expensive option.
