Bulb Planter

I use a bulb planter to move or transplant small plants like cabbage, broccoli, tomatoes, dill, ground cherries, lettuce, beans, etc. You have to have the kind with an adjustable release.

First squeeze the handle till the blades open a little bit.

Then center the selected plant in the opening and push down about 3 inches and release. Make one half turn and pull out your plant.

Place the plant in a previously dug hole.

Bury the whole thing. Then squeeze the bulb planter all the way out and gently remove it from the soil.

Add a little water and cover. Practice makes perfect.

  1. FANTASTIC!!! Finally, a useful idea for a bulb planter! I bought a bulb planter years plant bulbs, of course. I planted about 2 bulbs with it and threw it in the garbage. Decided it was easier to dig a proper bulb hole with a spade.
