Details

Love the idea of growing your own food? Relish the day you can harvest sweet corn? Can you just taste a salad fresh with radishes, leeks, spinach, carrots and lettuce? Long to snap small and jumbo peas for the pot? Bring diversity to your table with beets, okra, swiss chard? Welcome the Fall with a bushel of turnips? In reality, the chore of being on hands and knees to deposit those tiny, tiny seeds into the rows and rows of earth makes your joints creak? And it is so easy to get off track with making crazy zig sagging rows. Ugh….maybe grocery store produce is fine?

Don’t give up so soon! Here is the solution: The Earthway Precision Walk Behind Garden Seeder. One of the six plates will handle those seed crops and more. No more guessing about the distance between the seeds.

The steps are easy:

  • Install one of the precision seed plates that best fits your desired crop;Adjust the depth of planting on the ground opener;Set your 36” long row marker for the desired width;Fill the seed hopper with seeds;and Fearlessly plow through well tilled soil!!

In one continuous operation, the seeder will open the soil, space, and plant the seeds and then pack the soil over the seeds while preparing the next row. Garden Club Gerty next door will be green with envy at the look of your lush and perfectly laid out crop!

The cool features that will make the novice look like a professional gardener are:

  • All aircraft aluminum semi-assembled frame and new row marker clip
  • Rustproof wheels 36 inch/91 centimeter aluminum row marker
  • Adjustable ground opener
  • Cover chain

Be secure in knowing this is a quality product with its 5-Year Limited Warranty.

I just bought mine a week ago this fall and will be using it this spring.
My neighbor had one and it does a great job of planting in straight rows and planting the seed in just the right depth. No more guessing. It all.germinates and comes up at the same time.

I purchased this planter for my husband, as he is an avid vegie farmer, and the rest of our family is, too. I believe he was a bit skeptical at first, but after he used it to plans 2 pkg radish seed, he was sold!!! He could not believe how fast and evenly it worked, and he planted twice as much area as he thought he would. No trenches, no bending, no squatting, no wasted seed, no backache, no covering....amazing piece of equipment to help any kind of gardener!!

We had a poor growing season this spring in South Western PA. Much of my Sweet Corn did not sprout. I needed to reseed with out disturbing the corn that did come up. I used this seeder to fill in between the gaps and it worked just as I had hoped. Corn is already up10 days later. Nicely engineered for simplicity. Thanks.

This is the first time to use the seeder so their is a learning curve .when seeding things that need thinking such as beets it is best to make two passes per row it seemed to space the seeds further apart than I would by hand . I love beet greens so I will plant heavier next time . Beans seemed to have a few skips in them so keeping a closer eye on the despension of seed is recommended . All in all it is a great tool just make a few practice runs to start . Ill get many years of use out of this seeder

Read the instructions before using, not after like most do. Simple to follow and does a great job. Depth is important in seed planting so take note of instruction. I did 1/4 acre of deer corn in 45 minutes. Last year, by hand it took me 3 hours or more. I love it. A little tip, after tilling or discing, run a screen or fence over area to smooth grade. Works like a charm.
Thanks

I purchased this new Earthway Seeder to replace the one I had been using for close to 30 years. The old one was still functional after all these years, but some of the plastic parts were getting brittle. I purchased a competitor's planter a couple of years back and ended up donating it to a charity auction. Earthway is the best little planter out there.

If you have a decent size garden or a huge one you need this planter. It is simple but well made. It will knock hours off of your planting and save your back. The more planting you do the faster you n eed to buy one. It really is that good. The only thing that would improve it would have been a little man in the box to push it for you!

I was amazed about everything when it came to buying it. The price was lower than anyone else, it went out the same day, I got it in 4 days using normal shipping, and it was packed really well. What else could you ask for from a company? They where as good as anyone I have dealt with online.

I wouldn't garden without one of these seeders. I think they're great. I have the 2 different corn plares since some varieties have a larger grain than others. I have 2 of these seeders and also the fertilizer attachment which works great if there's no humidity. Setting the depth is the main thing when using the seeders, I raise 4 large gardens and these will pay for themselves in a single year.

I have owned one of the seeders for over 25 years. I have planted almost every garden seed imaginable and can say that it is an excellent little planter. I have I planted 8 acres with it last year and it performed as expected. I only wish it had a longer row marker and more control on corn seed. I need a new corn Plate. first broken part.
