Dibble

Dibble, hmmm, that's not a common word for most people these days!

But a dibble is a common tool for most gardeners! It's just a wood turned pointy shaft used for creating holes in the ground for planting. It's most commonly used to create holes for bulbs as they need to be inserted fairly deeply in the ground and require a good sized hole.

If you need a fun and easy to make gift for a gardener friend, a dibble is a winner!!

A Dibble (also called a Dibbler) is a simple tool used by gardeners to create holes in soil for planting seeds and small plants. The base design includes a ball-shaped handle, a flare and a taper with a series of 6 markings at 1" intervals that serve as a depth gauge. Modifying the Dibble with your own ideas or to fit your favorite gardeners needs is simple.
