Garden Dibber - Just the Right Size, Not Too Big But Not Too Small
A 'Dibber' – or 'Dibbler' as they're sometimes called – is a small hand-held tool used to neatly poke perfectly sized holes in the garden soil for planting seeds. Good ones are slightly tapered - but not too much - with markings that make it easy to get just the right depth of hole - every time.
Really good ones are just the right size, not too big but not too small, fitting effortlessly in your hand along with the seed packet or tray. Watch the video showing how nice it is - just click the Video tab above.
Ours not only have all of the above features, but they are handmade in Washington state of reclaimed wood by a small family company - much like ours. We are very happy to feature these quality tools that will become treasured parts of your garden history to become heirlooms in their own right.
Our Garden Dibber is an updated traditional English design, making this the ideal tool for sowing seeds, small bulbs or transplanting. Each dibber is marked in 1" increments, taking the guesswork out of planting. No more hunting for a pencil or using a finger! Keep one dibber in the greenhouse and a second in your tool bucket.
Wood species vary according to availability but are typically maple, cherry or apple. Each dibber is hand made and measures approx. 6" long x 1 1/2" wide.
Hand sanded then treated with a coat of pure tung oil followed by a traditional wax polish. The result is a silky-smooth finish that will last for decades.
All materials are locally sourced, recycled and crafted by hand in Washington, USA.
From the soil to the seed to the food you eat - we'll help you grow your best garden!
I also bought some for Christmas presents for gardeners and they all loved them too. All commented on how beautifully they had been made. Well worth the price of shipping to Australia.
I didn't know what a dibber was before this. They are super cool! I tried it in my garden, and they are way more useful than making a hole with my finger or a stick. These dibbers are also beautiful. I purchased 3 more for my friends, and they loved them. One note, in clay soil, the clay definitely sticks on them, but it's okay!
