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.

Very Useful Tool

I use this tool for a ton of things. I divide plants, I dig up stubborn weeds and, in a pinch, I dig holes to plant (I'm not very organized). It is heavy; if you don't need a really sturdy tool, buy something smaller. I have left this outside for days - did I mention I'm not organized? - and it shows no wear after 5 years.

Not just for bulbs

It's job this year is weeding thistle. I pop those nasties up go on to the next one. Today I pulled up more in 1 hour than I did yesterday in 4 hours.
It's heavy and easy to find. I bought it years ago and it's held up well.

not for heavy clay

Unable to plant any bulbs with this tool in heavy clay soil. Had to resort to plain old shovel. Couldn't get the bulbs anywhere deep enough. Would not recommend this tool for heavy soil.

Versatile tool

[...] I promptly challenged that by planting over 200 bulbs with it in thick clay and sand. It is a bit heavy to transport but I just put it in the wheelbarrow with all of my other supplies and that works for me. I have fibromyalgia so the weight is significant to me. Once I have it positioned it is easy to use because it is so heavy and breaks the soil readily. The red color makes it easy to locate. This spring I used it to aerate soils and transplant perennials. Highly recommend!

Needs improvement

This is a sturdy tool, very well made and easy to spot in the grass, but it is quite heavy to use after a few bulbs. I had trouble penetrating sod and getting deep enough to plant. I had really looked forward to using this pricey bulb planter but had to resort to a fork to get through ordinary sod and fall soil. It also was awkward to use, but perhaps if the points and blades were sharper it would help. I ordered "The Works" and planned to plant them along the edge of our woods and down the drive. Only got a few planted by the driveway entrance then had to give up and gave the rest of the bulbs away.
