“I had my pink bulb planting auger for several years and love it. It’s great for planting bulbs but also works well for planting potted plants. I love it so much, I just bought one for my grandson who has a wonderful vegetable garden and decided to branch into flowers this year. Make sure you have the right kind of drill and you will be amazed. PS I volunteer at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens and when I brought my auger to work during the fall bulb planting all the volunteers and horticulturists wanted one.”
