The patented PRO Transplanter was designed for working in established gardens and landscapes. It has a relatively narrow, deep blade that is ideal for transplanting and separating perennials; planting and transplanting shrubs and small trees; and digging around existing plantings without harming them. The narrow, tapered blade enters the soil much easier than does a standard shovel or spade blade. It’s just the right size for working in raised beds, too. If we had to get rid of every shovel and spade except for one, this is the one we would keep behind.
