Love it

Love it it well made and tuff . And made in the USA

A true time saver and back saver

This thing is the freaking bomb. In the time it took me to plant 20 bulbs the weekend before I planted 75 with this in about half the time.

Works perfectly as advertised!

This thing is amazing. I've tried trowels, shovels, handheld plug diggers, and augers. Nothing works as well as this does. I live in Virginia and we have gotten record-setting rain on top of mostly-clay soil. Even in the soggy, rooty muck under my magnolia tree, this is punching perfect holes at easy-to-measure depths. Seriously the best $40 I've spent.

Used it to plant bulbs.

Did exactly what I needed it to do. Ground was wet, which probably assisted.

Absolutely fabulous.

Absolutely fabulous. Works best on dry or moist soil but can be used if soil is wet. Highly recommend it.

Makes bulb planting easy!

This really makes bulb planting easy.
You do need to water a couple of days before to get the soil damp. It took me a couple of times to get just the right amount of moisture so the soil would not clogged up the tube.

Works great

Easy to use

easy to use, works well

planted several hundred daffodils over the last week, no problems with plugging. easiest tool I have used for bulb planting. also used it to remove material from lawn high spots

Works great

Very solid build, they have really designed this tool well.

Dirt just gets stuck, no help at all!

This hole digger was no help at all! Dry dirt was too hard to dig, and wet dirt just got jammed in there. I had to clean it out with a stick, with great difficulty, because the dirt became so condensed. It just made a mess of my bulb planting. You're better off just using a small trowel.

ProPlugger response: We're very sorry to hear that you had clogging issues. For the best success with plugging, use when the soil is moist - not overly saturated. Empty the tool after taking a few plugs to reduce the chance of clogging. To empty the tool, turn over and shake into a wheelbarrow or bucket. If the dirt is stuck, you can tap the tool firmly but carefully on soft dirt. Because of the tapered end, the last dirt plug doesn't always slide out. You can usually push it out with your thumb. Again, we are sorry that you had issues with the tool. 

Amazing product

Amazing product. Had 37 flats of dwarf mondo put in and it made the process so much easier. Worth every penny!

Worth the money

This made it much easier to plant flowers

The Best!

I am a senior citizen, this product is comfortable to handle. Planting bulbs and pulling out weeds is now easy on my back.

Great product!

The Pro Plugger works as advertised! I would buy it again but unless I lose it I won't have to since it is built to last!

Worth every penny!

This product is so easy to use and made planting 100 tulip bulbs pain free and so fast. I can not recommend it enough.

Planted 30 bulbs in minutes

Planted 30 bulbs in minutes, and my back was spared! Heavy duty construction. Worked well in Pacific Northwest late-November soil.


I usually don't write reviews but this bulb planter is easily the best $45 I have EVER spent for a gardening tool. It works great in clay soil and the only time I can see it being less useful is if you have large roots or a very stony soil. I highly recommend this product.

Very easy TIME SAVER

Planting 500 various depth bulbs

Do not buy

Do not waste your money. Great idea, but poor quality construction. Broke during first day of use.

ProPlugger Response: We're very sorry to hear that your ProPlugger had an issue. Please return it to Amazon for a full refund. We would appreciate hearing more your experience so we can prevent this from happening again. 

Works great!

So far, so good! I dug and plugged some, but my ground is hard and dry, so it doesn’t push in well. In softer spots, I can quickly get 10-15 2-4” holes, put in grass seed and compost, and water, all in just a few minutes. So I do it every day, until we get some rain (if ever). Water stays in scooped areas, so little water needed. Very fast. Pleased with how it captures the plugs, and empties easily.
