bulb planting

Hi Everyone, It’s a beautiful fall day in Minnesota and today we’re going to talk about something different. We’re going to talk about planting fall bulbs. For those of you who are like me, you like a simple way of gardening. That’s why I started straw bale gardening. I also like a simple way to plant bulbs. I know you’ve seen a million different tools and things that work for planting bulbs but today I’m going to show you the easiest, best invention ever.

I’m going to plant these tulip bulbs. They’re just some simple, cheap (I buy them when they’re on sale) tulip bulbs. I try to get them planted before the ground freezes. So here it is the day before Halloween when I’m out planting. But I’m going to show you the real thing I love which is this new ProPlugger. I bought this a year ago, a couple of years ago actually, and it is truly one of the greatest tools for planting fall bulbs. Let me show you a few little tricks that it can do.

JOEL KARSTEN, a farm boy who grew up tending a traditional soil garden like others have for centuries, shook up the gardening world with his first book describing his breakthrough STRAW BALE GARDENS® method.

Karsten earned a BS in Horticulture from the University of Minnesota. He is a popular speaker, making appearances around the world at events that celebrate innovation, gardening enthusiasts and healthful lifestyles.
