This gadget is useful for planting out large amounts of small tubestock and plants. It creates a planting hole without having to use a shovel or spade. At the time of writing this I had a shoulder injury that was exacerbated by the jolting action of digging. So I was looking for a way to plant a tray of native tubestock that wouldn’t aggravate my shoulder. The power planter was a great solution, allowing me to create appropriately sized planting holes without any of the harsh jolting action associated with digging.
