This involves digging a trench in the tilled soil of the right depth, dribbling seeds into the trench and then gently covering the seeds. This always results in a lot of seedlings that have to be thinned. This seed planter does it all much faster and much more evenly. I especially like the fact that you can set the depth of the planting very accurately. It is always hard to get shallow planted seeds at the right depth. This unit opens a trench of the right depth, drops in a seed and covers the seed in one pass. The interchangeable seed discs allow you to get the right size seeds in the ground at the right spacing. I am a bit obsessed about getting my rows evenly spaced and the distance wheel makes every row parallel to the others. Finally, this planter is made by Chapin who makes some of the best outdoor equipment around. I have never had a problem with any of their products. The powder coating on this seeder is flawless and the assembly went without a hitch.

I have used several garden seeders in my 40 years of organic gardening and most are engineered the same using different sized seed plates that pick up seed from a hopper and drops them into a chute which deposits the seed into a determined depth furrow which is covered with soil and packed with the rear wheel. This seeder has a uniquely engineered soil coverer device that actually works very well compared to a dragging chain that is used on some other brands. Unfortunately all of the seed disk planters are notorious for dropping more than one seed at a time and will require plenty of thinning when the seeds germinate. To me, this defeats the purpose of using an automatic seeder in the first place. I went back to hand seeding using a planting stick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chapin Garden Seeder With 6 Seed Plates For Up To 20 Seed Types We began to develop our back yard into an urban garden last year. After tilling the soil, we began hand seeding. It took a long time and a lot of back strain to get a few 50 foot rows seeded. Thus, we planted far less than we had planned. This year, we will have the Chapin Garden Seeder to speed up the process and take a strain off our backs. The design of the seeder is straight forward, and well-made. We will be planting about two dozen different vegetables, so the 6 seed plates will come in handy to accommodate the different seed sizes and spacing. The Chapin seeder digs the trench for the seeds to be sowed, and the rear wheel covers the trench back over the seeds. The row spacing wheel marks the next planting row for you, thus keeping rows well-spaced and even. The seeder came well packaged and partially assembled. It took less than 30 minutes to have it ready to go. A nice feature that we appreciated is that the Chapin Garden Seeder comes with a dual handle design that helps to control the push and balance of the seeder as you work through uneven soil. Other brands have only a single T-shaped grip.

I am an avid gardener and decided to make life easier with the Chapin Garden Seeder. It is perfect for a home vegetable garden and comes with six seeding plate attachments for accurately spacing of 20 different seed types. It also comes with an adjustable row marker wheel for proper spacing of the seeds. The soil is plowed and seeds are sewn into the ground at an adjustable depth. After planting, the wide back tire assists in covering up the seeds, and the unit has a kickstand for times when not in use. This seeder requires loose and cultivated soil to operate. It’s also advisable to use string to mark the rows properly. My garden will be much more organized this year with the Chapin Garden Seeder.

Chapin Garden seeder- This seeder comes partially assembled as shown in the picture. It took me roughly a half hour to put the rest together. Directions are a bit lacking 2 small 10 wrenches are needed. Before you attempt to use this be sure you soil is well tilled, flat and raked fine. It cleans up very easily and is easy to store. I am a huge gardener and put in a lot of seed every year. Frankly, though I wanted to love this, I do faster on my own. This requires far more preparation of the soil than I would normally do. Interesting concept, just not for my clay soil.

Very easy to use and small enough and light enough for my children to get involved in garden planting. Can't wait to use it, waiting for Spring to arrive. Unit came double boxed shipped to my home undamaged. Well packed to assure it arrives in good condition. I will use the box to store the seeder and plates when not in use. I highly recommend this for any gardener.

I really wante to step up my game this year and tripled the size of my garden. As I have gotten older I have found bending over nad planting hundreds of seeds can really do a number on my back. This seeder makes planting a breeze! I was able to plant in hour what would have taken me a few days. They were planted much neater and even then I would have done by hand. This is a really well made implement.
