Gardening can still be done on a small scale by simply burying seeds in the ground. But larger gardens often call for the faster, more precise approach provided by a seed planter, or seeder. Today, there are seeders for every need and to fit every budget.

Hand Seeders

Garden Harvest Supply stocks two hand-used seeders that make short work of planting even the tiniest seeds. The Mini Seedmaster Hand Seeder is a small plunger that injects the seeds into the soil at the right depth. The WOLF-Garten Multi-star Garden Seeder operates by dispensing seeds as it rolls along a garden row.

Wheeled Garden Seeders

For larger gardens or to eliminate the bending to plant seeds, DR Power Equipment offers a push seeder. The device opens the soil, plants seeds at the correct depth and spacing, covers them and marks the next row. Six plates are included for planting small seeds like carrots and radishes and larger seeds like corn, beans and peas.

Local Distributors

Garden seeders are also available at garden centres or farm supply outlets. The Agway company is a distributor with locations across the northeastern U.S. from Maine to New Jersey; it stocks push-type garden seeders.
