Anyone who knows me knows that I love gadgets. The bulb remover is a handy one for the garden, and can be used for planting and also transplanting bulbs.
Grasp the handle and press the edges firmly down into the soil. Turning it as you push helps loosen the dirt. Pull it upwards and the soil comes up too.
To remove the soil that is contained in the bulb remover, press the edges of the handle together to release it. Simple and effective.
