These soil-digging augers are a brilliant way to plant bulbs, particularly in heavier soils. They're especially great if you have loads to do, as you can drill planting holes in record time.

The best way to use them is to dig the holes in stages, lifting it out once or twice so the loosened soil is deposited next to the hole. Once the hole is deep enough, pop a bulb in the bottom (pointy side up) and refill with the loose soil.

The ingenious tool can also be used for aerating the compost heap.

The techie bit:

The augers are designed to use with a cordless drill with a voltage between 18 and 24 volts (not included), and have a 'hex' end to stop them slipping around in the drill chuck.

To be on the safe side and avoid twisting your wrist (if you hit a rock or tree root), the torque settings on the chuck of the drill should be set to medium.

We offer three sizes for different bulbs:

  • Snowdrops, anemones & crocus (small) - Ø1.25” x L18" (Ø3cm x 45cm)
  • Daffodils, tulips & iris (medium) - Ø1.75” x L30" (Ø4.5cm x 76cm)
  • Alliums & bedding plugs (large) - Ø2.75” x L24" (Ø7cm x 61cm)

Very useful set of tools

5

Extremely useful set of ground augers that work well with cordless drills. I have used the small and medium sizes for bulb planting in a grassed bank and there was far less damage than when using a trowel. The star prize goes to the large auger used to bore 3" by 24" holes in my clay allotment soil which were then filled with compost and finally sown with parsnip seeds. The results were long, plump and straight parsnips every time! You do need to be careful as the auger can snag on stones and woody roots resulting in the drill nearly twisting your arm off. I've found it best to drill slowly and not to apply too much downward pressure. Using the clutch on the drill chuck helps too.

A great product

I use this product with a cordless drill. It takes the pressure out of digging heavy soil. I also use it to mix my compost, takes the strain away from the wrist.

It says 'designed to use with a cordless drill with a voltage between 12 and 18 volts'. Is there any reason why I could not use a 240v corded drill?

VRW

Hi. Although these will work fine in a more powerful drill, the main reason we recommend a cordless drill is the safety aspect involved. Using any kind of electrical equipment in the garden carries a risk, and this is heightened by the increase of power and use of mains electricity. Hope this helps!

What diameter are your bulb planting augers small = ? medium = ? large = ? Are these augers UK manufactured or imported USA / elsewhere?? regards DavH
