Five Tools You Need for Starting a Plant


Ah, the springtime. It’s a time for new beginnings and all that. But if you’re like me, your idea of a garden usually involves some sort of seed packet, some dirt you got from who knows where and maybe some water from the tap if it’s warm enough outside. If you’re not careful though (and even if you are), your gardening experience can turn into a nightmare pretty quickly with weeds taking over your yard, bugs eating all your plants or even worse: no plants at all! Today we’re going to focus on what tools make starting a plant so much easier—so let’s get started!


The shovel is a multipurpose gardening tool that can be used for a variety of purposes. You can use it to dig holes, move soil around the garden, mix soil together, transplant plants and so much more. A shovel is an essential tool when starting your vegetable garden as it will help you prepare the soil for planting seeds or seedlings.

A good quality shovel will last for many years if properly taken care of and stored in between uses. When buying a new shovel make sure that it has slightly curved sides with sharp corners at one end which makes digging easier than flat sided shovels do because they tend to scoop up more material when trying to dig down into hard compacted earth surfaces like clay soils may have become over time due to repeated rainfall events which cause runoff water moving down hillside slopes destroying topsoil erosion problems occurring upstream from where runoff first starts migrating downhill towards lower elevations where its destination may eventually lead towards oceanside beaches below sea level elevation levels causing flooding along coastal areas near shorelines located adjacent offshore shorelines within close proximity distance away from each other on land masses surrounding them (such as islands)


Pruners are a necessity for cutting back dead branches and stems. They are also useful for cutting back new growth, which can make your plants more compact and less likely to get tangled up in each other. Pruners come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so it’s important to choose the one that works best for you.

If you’re starting a garden or starting over again with an old one, pruners are a great tool to have on hand. You’ll be able to keep your plants tidy without having to bust out the loppers or saws!

Watering canister

Watering plants is one of the most important parts of gardening, but it’s also one of the most boring. You want to make sure that your plants are getting enough water without drowning them in a flood of H20. Luckily, there are many tools out there that can help do just that!

The watering canister is a great option and it comes in a variety of sizes. The best thing about this tool is that you can customize how much water you put out and control how many times per day or week you’ll have to check on your plants. This way, if you have multiple planter boxes or pots at different levels within one area (like me!), then this will be an ideal tool for ensuring everyone gets what they need each time!


The next thing that you need for your plants is gloves. There are many different kinds of gloves, but the most important ones are the ones that protect your hands from the sun and dirt. If a plant gets dirt on it, you will have to wash it off before putting it in water again. Choose a pair of gloves that fit well and are comfortable to wear all day long. The best kind of materials for these types of gloves are usually cotton or polyester because they breathe well and allow your hands to stay cool when working outside in hot weather conditions!

You can also choose a pair with rubberized grips on them so that they don’t slip out from underneath when picking up heavy items such as watering cans full filled up with water inside them – which happened once before while trying one without this feature -_-


A trowel is a gardening tool used for digging and mixing soil. It can also be used for planting potted plants or transplanting seedlings. The size of your trowel will depend on the type of task you need it for; for instance, a small trowel is great for weeding in tight spaces or planting small plants, whereas a larger one may be better suited to digging holes or moving dirt around.

A good quality trowel should have sharp edges that are easy to clean after use (so they won’t rust) and they should also have comfortable grips so your hands don’t get sore while using them over long periods of time. If you plan on doing any serious digging then it’s important that both handles are made from strong materials such as plastic or metal rather than wood – however if all you plan on doing with your new tools is pulling weeds out while standing up then wooden handles may actually be preferable because they’re lighter weight!
