The design of the planting trowel has its heritage in the beginning of the 20th century, and it can be used for planting bulbs, seedlings and small plants. The large head is also very effective at breaking and turning soil. The planting trowel is hand forged and sharpened on both sides making it the perfect tool to work fast and with precision. The Sneeboer planting trowels are the garden tool of choice of the gardeners at the Dutch Keukenhof Exhibition where it is used every year to make the plant holes for millions of bulbs. In addition to that, and as a testimony to its usefulness, it is the favorite garden tool of English tv-gardener Monty Don!
