Product Details

This planter for naturalizing has all of the virtues of the Bulb Planter for Borders (rugged steel construction, a red finish for high visibility, and a lifetime guarantee on its performance and durability), but it's specially designed with a bend in the blade to offer better leverage for planting bulbs in unprepared, even inhospitable ground—in the lawn, in a meadow, in the woods. At the business end is a notched, 2½"-wide blade that slices easily through compacted and rocky soils. Drive the blade down with your foot, pull the handle toward you, then push it away, and you've created a hole the ideal depth for planting most Tulips, Daffodils, and Lilies. After the first few tries, you'll find a rhythm that will let you plant a hundred bulbs an hour. It goes even faster with help from a friend. The planter measures 38" tall, weighs nearly 8 lb and is painted bright red so you can't lose it. This rugged tool is guaranteed forever. Exclusive.




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.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it.

Inadequate for larger bulbs

I was disappointed in this tool. While it does make a hole, the hole is pyramidal, with the apex at the bottom, which means it gets narrower from the surface down. It's ok for small bulbs (e.g. Tulipa 'Lilac Wonder'), but totally inadequate for Tulip 'Queen of Night' or Allium christophii. I wasted both time and money on it. I ended up using a San Angelo digging bar, which was much better for larger bulbs.

Planting bulbs has never been easier

I planned on spending a few days planting the almost 200 bulbs I ordered but I was done in one afternoon. Once I got a sense of how this tool works it was so simple, fast and fun that I ordered more bulbs. This is a well made, sturdy tool and I expect that I will find other uses for it in the garden, particularly when dividing clumps. I highly recommend this tool.

My favorite "shovel/digging tool"

I have used this tool the past 10 years! It is phenomenal for digging through landscaping rocks...tough clay soils and even compacted, clay/sand soils. It is my "go to" digger.

Terrific Tool

Worked great for planting daffodil bulbs. Sturdy, heavy design is necessary for pushing into dirt. I'm a 56 year old woman and it was not too heavy for me to use. Some soils require more effort to get it deep enough in the ground, but it worked in both tilled and untilled areas of our landscape. The best tool I've found to plant a lot of bulbs.

Best bulb planter ever!

This tool is my new best friend! I just planted 100 of "The Works" daffodils in grass, and it only took a few hours. My other long bulb planter (the round kind that takes a plug out of the ground) would not penetrate the grass, but this tool sliced right through. I had to jiggle the tool around to create a hole big enough for the Works bulbs (which were HUGE), but it was no big deal. I'm so happy, I'm going to order another round of "The Works"!
