If you want to plant bulbs in the lawn, or the borders, this bulb planter is highly recommended. Tried and tested, it is the best bulb planter we have ever used.
The stainless steel angled blade cuts through turf or compacted soil extremely easily, and the tough foot bar allows you to push the blade firmly into the soil.
The long handle is made from polished ash for comfort and longevity.
To use, press firmly on the foot bar, pushing the planter into the soil. Then lift out the sod/plug that will come away with the planter tube, drop the bulb into the hole, and replace the soil back on top.
This is no longer available see here for hand-held bulb planter which is extremely efficient.
