Frequently Asked Questions

What Size Plant Auger Do You Need for Planting?

The plant auger you need will depend on the size of the plans you’re planting as well as the soil you’re working with. Small bulbs and flowers can be planted with a small plant or bulb auger, while you will probably need a larger auger for planting plants that need bigger, deeper holes. Additionally, hard, compact soils may require larger, heavy-duty plant augers for drills. If you’re still unsure what size plant auger you need, check out this guide or take our auger quiz

How Do You Use an Auger for Planting?

Start by securing the plant auger bit to your drill. Then, choose a planting spot and start drilling with the plant auger. Start the drill and lightly push the plant auger into the ground, letting it cut its way through the soil until you reach the desired depth. Pull out the plant auger, place the plant in the hole, and backfill with soil. Finally, water the plant well to settle the soil around it. 

How Long Does It Take to Dig Holes with Plant Augers for Drills?

Digging time with plant augers for drills varies based on auger size, soil type, hole depth, drill speed and power. In general, using an auger for planting can significantly reduce the time it takes to dig holes compared to manual digging. With a plant auger, you can dig multiple holes in a fraction of the time it would take with a shovel or trowel, and the resulting hole is more precise.

Can I Use a Plant Auger for Potted Plants or Container Gardening?

Absolutely! Plant augers can be a great tool for container gardening or planting in pots. You just need to ensure that you use the right size auger that fits your pot or container. They can help you easily create holes for planting, which can be especially helpful if you’re dealing with compacted potting soil.

Can Plant Augers Be Used for Other Purposes Besides Planting?

Yes, plant augers can be used for various gardening tasks beyond planting. They can be utilized to mix soil, compost, and fertilizer, and they can also be used to aerate the soil in your garden. Some users even use them for small-scale excavation tasks and for making holes for fence posts. However, it’s essential to check the auger’s specifications and limitations before using it for a purpose other than its intended use.
