Dibbers & Tampers

Tampers are used to press down the compost in pots and trays prior to sowing seeds or inserting cuttings. By pressing the compost down you create a firm, level surface and ensure there will be good contact between the seeds or cuttings. Using a tamper prior to planting will also remove any air pockets within the compost which could lead to over-saturation of roots and possible collapse of the surface compost on watering. Tampers are also known as 'Presser Boards'.

Used in a greenhouse, a small Dibber is used to make holes in compost when sowing larger seeds or cuttings. Often with a gauge along one side, the dibber is a tool which lets you create the correct depth of hole for the plants you are sowing. In the garden a Dibber is also used - this time a larger version - to create a hole when planting rows of vegetables such as brassicas or leeks. Again, these larger Dibbers often have a gauge on the side to help you plant everything to the correct depth for successful growth.

Dibber and Widger Planting Set
The Dibber and Widger Set is a useful set of tools for "pricking-out" and "potting-on" - make holes with the Dibber and gently lift seedlings with the Widger.

Pot Dibber in Beech
This smaller Pot Dibber makes it easier for you when sowing seeds and transplanting seedlings. It makes it easy for everyone to accurately plant seeds in pots, seed trays or plug trays. The Dibber also makes it simpler for you when transplanting delicate seedlings without damage.

Round Beech Tamper
A Tamper is used whilst sowing seeds to compress the compost. Compressing the compost removes any air pockets in the compost, which could result in roots becoming water logged or exposed to the air. This Round Tamper is perfect for firming compost in round pots with a diameter of 2½" or greater.

Square Beech Tamper
This square wooden tamper is designed to make it quick and easy to gently compress the compost in seed trays or pots prior to sowing seeds. This square tamper will reach easily into the corners of seed trays so you have an even surface of compost on which to sow your seeds.
