Product Details

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, and is marked in inches and centimeters as an easy guide for bulb planting depth. The 12″ trowel is perfect for garden beds, and is also useful for transplanting seedlings in spring and for digging out taprooted weeds.




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. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at 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. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Only tool I use.

Except for a shovel and rake, this is pretty much the only tool I ever need. I have snapped handles on many a trowel, but this one is indestructible!

Easiest bulb planting ever!

Perfect for small bulbs like crocus---the width is perfect to make just the right size and depth hole for naturalizing in the lawn without too much disturbance to the existing sod.

Really good all-purpose trowel

I was ambivalent about spending so much money on a trowel, but I was really tired of trowels that bent out of shape when I used them in my hard clay soil, so I took a chance on this one.

I have been very pleased with the performance of this trowel. I have used it now for about 3 years. It has never become misshapen when I dig with it. I have inadvertently left it out in the rain, and it didn't rust at all.

I use it in place of a shovel for planting small perennials, to plant bulb when I have just a few, and to dig up dandelions and other weeds.

The trowel is long enough that you get good leverage from it. So unless I have to plant something large, I can usually use it instead of dragging out my shovel.
