Dibble Stick

A Dibble Stick (or dibber, or dibble) is a pointed wooden stick for making holes in the ground so that seeds, seedlings or small bulbs can be planted. Dibble Stick come in a variety of designs including the straight Dibble Stick, T-handled Dibble Stick, trowel Dibble Stick, and L-shaped Dibble Stick.

The Dibble Stick was first recorded in Roman times and has remained mostly unchanged since. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, farmers would use long-handled Dibble Stick of metal or wood to plant crops. One man would walk with a Dibble Stick making holes, and a second man would plant seeds in each hole and fill it in. It was not until the Renaissance that Dibble Stick became a manufactured item, some made of iron for penetrating harder soils and clay.
