Crocus and other late winter bloomers are best planted in early autumn. They are most effective in landscapes when planted in quantity, tightly spaced and clumped together in large swaths. Leave it to the bulb-loving Dutch to provide the perfect tool for such a job. Made of boron steel with hardwood ash handle, the planter is 10 long, weighs 6 oz, and has a diameter of 1‚1/2". Quick and efficient even putting in hundreds of bulbs. Also, really useful for forcing bulbs in pots.
