Autumn is the time of year when gardeners start to clean up and organise their gardens for the upcoming winter months. It is also the perfect time for planting out bulbs to be ready for spring.
What a lovely way to start spring to have some bulbs pop up and add some colour to your garden.
And in planting bulbs, our long-handled bulldog bulb planter will do the job exceptionally well. This gardening tool has a plug tapered blade design and can cut down to create a clean core of up to 15cms of soil. Both the socket and blade is made to be exceptionally sharp and durable. It is forged from a single piece of Manganese steel and securely fitted with a strong Ash T-handle to ensure its durability through many years of rough usage.
This bulb planter has already been tested by a lot of professional gardeners and featured in the some UK garden magazines. It has been featured in the gardening section of the UK Daily Telegraph where it was described as “ideal” and continued “This long-handled tool is designed for the job. Hand-forged in Britain from one piece of steel, the treaded blade allows for the easy removal of soil plugs, even in compacted soil.” It has also been tested by Tamsin Westhorpe and featured in the English Garden Magazine as the Editor’s Choice feature. Tamsin comments that the bulb will definitely last for a long time and also notes that “there are no weak points, which is a benefit”.
Tesselaar, a well known garden bulb nursery advise that ‘most bulbs are planted twice as deep as the bulb is high/tall and the same distance apart.’ And with a 15 cm blade, the Bulldog Bulb Planter will be able to do the job exceptionally well.
