$15 - Gardener's Dibble - A dibble, also called a dibber or a dibbler, is a garden tool that makes planting seeds, seedlings and bulbs a joy. It makes holes in the soil to a consistent depth. I make these dibbles from any of several hardwoods. The material is always salvaged from items others have thrown away: baseball bats, table legs, tool handles, etc. They may be hickory, ash, teak, oak or maple.
