Planting flower bulbs has never been quicker or easier than it is with the Bulb Bopper®. Attach this stainless steel bulb auger cylinder to any standard power drill and let it do the work, creating 2" diameter planting holes up to 9" deep.

I would probably buy this product again.
The product works great in sandy loser soil, but not so good in clay soil or if the soil is very wet.
So much easier to use!

I was hesitant at first looking at this but what a difference it made getting bulbs into the ground quickly at a given depth! Definitely would recommend!
Practice makes perfect!

Had to do 100 holes 6 inches deep for tulips, was fine for the first dozen or so then got a little tedious cleaning out the dirt. Also, it seemed to bog down as I was drilling and almost overheating the drill. I tried a couple different ways and finally discovered that if I drilled just thru the grass plug, removed it and then finished the job it was much, much easier. Took me just over 2 1/2 hrs to do all 100 of them and that was with a 20 - 25 minute break at the halfway point.

Definitely saves strain on your wrists over using a manual bulb-planting tool.Plus helps get the job done faster.
Could be great but...

Great potential, but our drill did not have enough power. I think we need a heavy duty or professional model drill.
Planting bulbs is easy now
I planted 250 bulbs in just a few hours!
Awesome IF you have good soil
from Smyrna, TN
This did help me in certain spots in my yard but I live in Middle Tenn. and it's clay based. I did end up using a hand trowel. The drill just couldn't handle the density and the Bulb Bopper just isn't sharp enough.

This saved so much time and energy! Last year it took two days to dig 50 holes by hand for bulbs, in our heavy clay soil and I hurt my shoulder. This year, with the bopper, I did 28 holes in under an hour. The bulb bopper is a life saver.
This was a great choice.

It is much faster than digging by hand. It picks up the dirt so you can drop the bulb in the hole & put the dirt back in the hole from the cylinder with much less effort that trying to put it on something so you can get it back in the hole without disturbing the mulch too much. I give it a 5 out of 5.
