HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

Denise from Indianpolis, IN
I should have ready the description better. We have had a drought and the soil is very hard. Unless you have a lot of strength or weight this dosen't work well in dry soil. Only was able to get it to go down 2 inches. I am sending it back for the "naturalizing" tool which I am sure will work better. On the plus side this is made to last a lifetime - I don't see how it would ever break. If you have soft or moist soil go for it. If you have hard soil go for the other one.
More to Plant from Missoula, MT
I have used this tool for several years to plant bulbs in established borders as well as in lawns. I have previously used different foot-powered bulb planters and have wound up breaking them. This super-sturdy bulb planter is still going strong. I love the large diameter of the holes (~4"), since I can usually plant about three large daffodils per hole. I can always get my holes deep enough with this tool. This tool is well worth its price.
