"Bulb Auger" Planting Tool

Got an email from I place I occasionally buy tools from for a "Bulb Auger":

Goes into the chuck on your cordless drill, and augers out a hole for you to plant your bulbs or other plants into.

Kind of a neat idea, especially if you have really hard soil, like a lot of places do.

I don't know how well it works, as I've never used one, but I thought I'd pass it along as I know some of my readers are into gardening.

Learn more about it here, at JTS Machinery and Supply.

Since the above link takes you to the Bulb Auger page, and the "Home" button doesn't take you to their main website, here's the link for the main JTS Homepage.


  1. I've used similar tools for lots of non-gardening digging tasks to make trenches, post holes, etc. in hard soil. Once you have one and a powerful modern cordless drill to spin it you'll find lots of other uses for it. Sometimes I'll even use a shop vac. to suck out the loosened soil.

  2. Looks like a neat application for bulbs, especially if creeping arthritis is taking a toll. I too have vacuumed-up dirt (and rocks) with a Shop-Vac!


Keep it civil, please....
