Originally a dibble was nothing more than a six inch end section of a cows horn. Well, needless to say cows didn’t cotton to that kind of activity and went on strike forcing mankind to use wood and plastic as an alternative.
When choosing a dibble make sure it has a strong handle. You’ll come across two different types: a T handle and a D shaped handle. Both are ergonomically correct and easy to use.
If you do a lot of planting or have a large yard a dibble can help you poke holes for planting purposes quickly and efficiently. If you’ve never dibbled in your garden before, you don't know what you’re missing.
