Simply enter your e-mail here to subscribe to Pegplant’s Post Gardening Newsletter, an e-newsletter about gardening in the Washington DC metropolitan area. Each issue lists local gardening events, recently published gardening books, articles, and tips specific to this area. Pegplant’s Post Gardening Newsletter always has a giveaway, an opportunity to win a free plant or gardening-related product. For the upcoming September 2022 issue of Pegplant’s Post, the giveaway is a set of garden augers, courtesy of Power Planter.
The augers are used to drill holes in the ground, making it easier and faster than digging with a trowel. The set has two sizes: 2 inches x 7 inches and 3 inches x 7 inches. The 2-inch diameter is perfect for planting annuals, grass plugs, or seeds while the 3-inch diameter is great for planting bulbs. The augers will fit most electric or cordless drills on the market. These are made by Power Planter, a third generation, family-owned auger manufacturing company in Illinois.
