Single-grain Sower


Finally, one that nobody got.

From the website:


Made of rubber and brass.

Height 5 cm, width 6.5 cm, length 11.5 cm; weight 50 g.

With 3 interchangeable hollow needle tips, detailed instructions and seed list.

One by one.

Not for the market gardener: but if you like planting out on a small scale following a precise plan — one plant here, another there — you’ll find this sensible little gadget a great help.

With it, you can pick up even the finest seeds or grains one by one and sow them in your ready-prepared bed, tray or pot.

The great advantage is that you’ll never have to do any more thinning, for many gardeners an unwelcome, time-consuming chore.

It's easy to operate: you just press the air out of the rubber air-bag, put the tip of the device on to the (single) grain, release the pressure on the bag, which will then pick up the grain and sow it (after you pressed the bag again) in exactly the spot that you’ve selected for it.

It comes with three attachment tips in different sizes (instructions included) for smaller or larger seeds and grains.

It's made by an American sowing machine firm – this is the smallest in their whole range!
