Very expensive but looks and functions very well. Durability of the wooden handle and how it is connected to the metal sleeve is a cause for concern if the usage is high.
As anno domini creeps on we bought this product to plant in leeks. It worked a treat and saved the old backs from crouching/bending. It will be used for bulb planting at the appropriate time. We have had the potato planter from the same range for many years and it is one of our favourite garden tools. They are solidly made. They are not cheap to buy but should last a lifetime. I can thoroughly recommend.
I recently move to a house with 3 plus acres and have planted woods then I got over a thousand bulbs to plant namely daffodils. This planter saved my back and made planting much easier. The only fault is the metal head soon starts to move around in the shaft of the handle but to date has not fallen out. Overall it is a very well made tool and would highly recommend it. It is a shame they do not make a small diameter cutting head for small bulbs.
