It is always good to have the best tools for the job at hand. Planting flower bulbs is no different. Sure, you can use a shovel or trowel you already have, but there are advantages to using a bulb planter. Bulbs are larger than seeds, and need to be planted at a greater depth. Most bulb planters come with a ruler printed on them, so you can see the depth right there on your tool. Your plantings will be accurate and even, and your garden even prettier.
- Bulb planters are gardening tools that can simplify and speed up the task of planting bulbs, some have long handles, allowing you to stand while planting.
- Some bulb planters have depth measurements marked on them so that you can easily measure the correct depth to plant a bulb.
- The simplest version is a manual bulb planter, but others can attach to a standard power drill for faster planting.
“Using bulb planters in the garden can be especially useful if you are planning a widespread color display and are planting dozens or even hundreds of bulbs.”
