For planting large numbers of small bulbs, this durable trowel is ideal. Unlike traditional garden trowels, which are used as a scoop, this tool is designed to stab the ground. Jab the trowel straight down and pull the handle toward you to create a slot. The sharply pointed, stainless-steel blade slices through sod or soil. The 12in trowel is perfect for garden beds, and is also useful for transplanting seedlings in spring and for digging out taprooted weeds.
