An indispensable tool for planting bulbs and plants!
Buy bulb drill and plant auger?
Drilling a deep hole in the ground is easy with a soil drill for stakes, also known as a stake drill. This auger has wide handles that allow you to use good force to turn the auger around. This garden tool is indispensable when installing a fence. Fence posts need to go deep into the ground: about a third, if the result is to be sturdy. But also when you are going to place a support post near a young tree or, for example, drill holes in the lawn (to fill with gravel so that water can drain away properly), you need to drill a deep hole and the post drill is an ideal tool.
With the soil drills from Garden Select, you can drill holes with a diameter of 7, 5, 10 and 13 centimetres. For light soil types, you can buy a hand-operated soil auger made of galvanised steel.
Planting bulbs or potatoes
Planting flower bulbs or potatoes is easy with a bulb planter or long bulb spear. A bulb planter is a hand tool with a plastic handle that can be pressed. First you push the planter into the soil, then pull up the planter with the soil in it, put the bulb in place and then press the handle - the soil falls out of the planter back into the hole. This way, there is no need to use a shovel.
