Bulbs Gardening Laidback Gardener Tip of the Day

For Quick and Easy Bulb Planting, Use an Auger

20161013A.jpgIf digging individual holes for your fall bulbs putting you off, try a bulb auger.

It’s simply a spiral bit that attaches to a hand drill (preferably cordless: who wants to drag a power cord all over the garden?) and thus converts it into a mini-auger.

The new tool allows you to dig a hole to the desired depth in seconds and is especially useful when you want to plant bulbs (tulips, narcissus, hyacinths, etc.) in tight spaces, such as between two perennials.

If you can’t find one in your local garden center or hardware store, they’re easy enough to locate on Amazon and Breck’s Canada also offers one.
