Small Tools for Seeds

Post  trolleydriver on 5/2/2016, 8:31 pm

My wife does beading as a hobby. She picked up some tools from the dollar store for working with the beads; however, she did not like them. They are now part of my gardening tool set. They come in handy when working with seeds.  For example, you can pour seeds into the tray. When finished you can return the seeds to the packet by unscrewing the cap on the end (at the top in the photo) and use the tray like a funnel. To give an idea of the size, the tray is about 3 inches wide and the smallest scoop is 2 inches end to end.

That tiny scoop would be about perfect for planting out starts from cell packs.  I'm using a spoon right now.

I am using a butter knife to scoop out the plant from the cell pack.

Some of the utensils look nice!   I am currently using a plastic knife to separate my 3/4" squares with the seeds/ plants.
