Many plants (especially flowers) must be sown, raised and then installed in their final place, sometimes after an intermediate transplant in a bucket. The seedlings planted in the terrine, in the bucket or in the nursery are transplanted. The material differs depending on whether the plant is bare-rooted or with its root ball. In the latter case (as well as for the planting of the bulbs), it is necessary to dig a larger hole.
• Most often all-steel, it is used to dig holes for transplanting bare-rooted seedlings.
• It is also used, at the time of sowing, to open the holes of seeds placed in pockets.
• The dibble is also used to tighten the soil against the roots of a plant that has just been transplanted (boundary) by digging a hole right next to that of the transplanting.
The bulb plant
• As its name suggests, it is used mainly to make the holes that will host the bulbs, both in the pleasure garden and vegetable garden.
• It works according to the same principle as a cookie cutter: by pressing on the handle, a metal part is pushed into the ground, which makes it possible to extract a "carrot" of soil and thus to make the desired hole.
• The bulb plant is also used to prepare the clodding holes.
• Finally, note that there are cookie cutters with long handles, which are pushed in with your foot.
• A small, generally rounded metal shovel that is used mainly to take seedlings out of a nursery, for example to transplant them in place.
• The transplant can also be used to dig the holes required for transplanting or
to the placement of the bulbs.
• This tool is also used to fill the planters with potting soil or to plant the planting holes before transplanting them into a mound.
