Gayle:  I had to have 800 tulip bulbs and 200 daffodil bulbs planted at a
landscape client's home.  We bent a bulb planter, the clay was so hard, but
when I bought one of the augers, it really did work great and we were able
to plant (myself and two teen age boys) all those bulbs in two afternoons
after school.  They worked great for us!
