ryobi battery powered post hole digger.  It's great for planting.  I use the 8inch for 2gallon and one gallon.  10inch for five gallon.  Will dig about 60 holes per charge

    Is it from planting trees?

    I use it for anything one gallon or larger.  It's also a great post hole digger

    It takes gardening to the oil rig level...if you have hundreds of holes then I understand it, but for the average Brit this looks surreal. Laura/Garden Answer on YouTube is very keen to sell them...but then she has acres of garden and tonnes of free annuals to plant.

    I don't have very much time.  I work a lot.  I'm at the age of taking care of parents and my kids.and so anything that saves time I buy it.  I can plant something with this in less than a minute.

    Good for you, sounds a good buy in your circumstances, I'd do the same. Now I want something similar for weeding!!

    If you have YouTube watch garden answer she has some cool tools

    I bought a set of big drill type things for planting bulbs, but they need a drill with a big chuck (if that's the word) or they slip out too easily especially if they hit a stone or root.
