Excellent digger; prone to rust
This digger quickly digs round chunks of soil. With two people, one person can pop the bulbs in the hole while the other hops around on the digger. In heavy soil, you need to jump on the digger with vigor. The harder you jump, the deeper the hole. This is helpful when you are planting bulbs with different soil depth requirements. We planted hundreds of daffodils, muscari, and bluebells in one month using this tool. Unfortunately, this stainless steel digger has rusted after just one season. It was kept indoors all winter. We purchased the entire set of tools sold as the NRG PRO tool gift set which was marketed as stainless steel. Of course, we wonder if the remainder will rust too.
I liked this auger so much, I bought two
I bought this auger because I do a lot of planting, but my back has begun to complain about the bending. After trying out my own and finding that it cut way down on the need to bend from the waist, I gave a second one to a gardener friend who is retiring. Digs a nice deep hole for bulbs or for transplanting perennials or even planting vegetable sets. Nice and heavy duty. I love it.
