World's oldest garden tool...
The dibble ( or 'dibber', or 'dibbler' ) is the world's oldest garden tool--a sharp stick. A fast and efficient tool for planting small wildflower bulbs and for setting in transplants. Transplanting with a dibble is much easier on the wrist than trying to transplant with a hand trowel or spade. Push your dibble into the ground and push or twist it to the depth desired. It's easy to enlarge the original hole with a gentle rocking motion, provided the soil has been well worked.
Care of your dibble: After use, wipe off with a damp rag.
ZENBORI SOIL KNIFE
This tool's been used for thousands of years...
The digger/planter is a unique all-purpose garden tool of Korean origin. It digs, weeds, and thins. Use it to dig holes for planting and transplanting, open and close rows for planting and transplanting, loosen soil around plants. The curve of the pointed blade allows soil to be thrown to the side like a plow. This makes it easier to dig holes and trenches. Pulling this tool is easier for digging and loosening soil than pushing a hand spade.The edges of the blade are used to level, mound and loosen soil and cover seeds. Use to tear up sod, remove heavily rooted weeds, turn dirt back from sidewalk edges and for defining bed edges for mulching. It will cut through landscaping fabric to insert plants, grub out weeds, and move and smooth soil and mulch. A versatile garden tool I wouldn't be without.
