Our soil-digging augers are a brilliant way to plant bulbs, particularly in heavier soils. These long versions are great if you have loads to do, as you can drill planting holes in record time from a standing position.

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.

Made from robust powder-coated steel, 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 & muscari (small) - Ø1 ¼” x L18" (Ø3cm x 45cm)
  • Daffodils, tulips, iris & gladioli (medium) - Ø1 ¾” x L30" (Ø4.5cm x 76cm)
  • Alliums, lilies & bedding plugs (large) - Ø2 ¾” x L24" (Ø7cm x 61cm)

Bulb auger - splendid tool!

I have purchased two of these augers, one for small bulbs in the lawn and one to assist with installing tree stakes in heavy soil. Excellent product, used carefully with a good battery drill.

Used to plant a hundred daffodils in compacted grassland (sandy loam) and bluebells in woodland. Different sizes of auger for different depths. Very competitively priced from Crocus and do the job well. Did work better with a hand brace than with an electric drill.

Bought for planting bulbs in lawn. Hard work to penetrate compacted soil. Might be more efficient in a border

Augers will for planting bulbs

Great tool for planting large numbers of bulbs. Make sure when drilling through the soil that you pull out the augur to draw out the soil every so often otherwise the soil gets compacted around the augur...

My garden is exceedingly stoney, normal bulb dibbers just bounce off. Using the auger in a power drill made light work of getting down to the right depth for daffs. Also used under a tree where the profusion of roots would also defy conventional methods of making holes to plant bulbs. Reasonable price, tough tool. Very pleased.

Used regularly each year when I plant additional spring bulbs in the lawn. Saves a lot of backache and strain and ensures bulbs are properly planted.

Need easy soil to begin with.

You need light soil to start with & if you do this isn't really needed. Soil with any amount of "stickiness" & it's useless.

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
