A bulb or transplant trowel; the perfect garden trowel


Often when gardening you can find yourself transplanting very small seedlings, or trying to plant in small pots or tight containers.

When this happens, a regular garden trowel is just too large, and makes too big a hole.

Well if you haven't tried one, use a bulb trowel, also called a transplant trowel.

It's the perfect tool for making small, narrow holes in areas with little space and it makes just the right sized holes for small seedlings.

This type of trowel has a longer and narrower blade than an ordinary garden trowel and it holds a sharp edge, which makes it very easy to use.

A bulb (or transplant) trowel is also great when working in a rock garden when you need a narrow, but deep, hole necessary for roots to grow in the crevices between the rocks.

It is a handy tool for planting bulbs, digging long tap-rooted weeds, or planting seedlings where space is at a premium.

So next time, instead of trying to cram a regular-sized trowel into a small area, use a narrow-bladed trowel instead, it will make your life so much easier!

Primula Love Cool Weather

There are many varieties of Primula and they all love cooler temperatures and shade to partial shade areas.

The top three favorites are English Primrose (Primula Polyanthus), Fairy Primrose (P.malacoides), and P.obconica.

They make great woodland plants, bedding or edging plants, and container plants.

They are perennials, and when planted in the correct spot, will last for years.
