This fearsome thing looks like a medieval weapon. In fact, it’s a great way to get large bulbs into (or out of) unprepared ground—a lawn or a meadow, for example, or at the edge of woods. It is a rugged tool made of aircraft alloy steel. A foot pad on the back allows you to put your weight into driving the 12-gauge, semi-circular blade into the soil.
If the tool is pushed into the ground once, rotated 180 degrees and then pushed into the ground a second time, it can be used to pry up a core of soil 3 inches in diameter and 6 inches or more deep, just the right size for a hefty Colorblends daffodil. Can also be used as a shovel. You can speed up planting and save yourself much stooping if you engage a coworker, an employee or a friend to drop bulbs into a hole you’ve made while you move on to dig the next.
