The Wedgie is unquestionably my favorite and most-used tool. Every year, I plant over
1,000 seedlings in my rooftop container garden, and the Wedgie has allowed me to plant twice as quickly as before, which really adds up! It is far more efficient than a traditional trowel or spade, as it quickly creates a planting hole that is exactly the size
of a standard plug, without spraying soil all over my clothes and my deck. And although I experience problems from carpal tunnel syndrome in both wrists, I can garden for hours at a time using my Wedgie without pain; I recommend it to friends with similar problems as well as arthritis.
In 2005, my container garden won First Prize for Rooftop Gardens Citywide in Chicago’s annual Mayor Daley’s Landscape Awards contest. I couldn’t have done it without my Wedgie!

When I was called upon to share my favorite gardening tools at my garden club meeting, I immediately thought of my Wedgie. I have two Wedgies so I took them both to ‘show and tell’ and passed the Wedgies around so everyone could see the Wedgie up-close and personal. It was the hit of the meeting. Thanks for a wonderful addition to my gardening tool collection.

I found Wedgie to be very useful especially in the window boxes. It took a lot of pressure off my wrists and cut digging time. I found it to be quite comfortable and if anything would like to try longer versions of it.
I pack my containers with lots of plants when initially planting them. The use of the “Wedgie” enables me to have better leverage in placing the plants. As a professional landscaper this saves me time and makes the project look better because the rootball of the plant is less compacted. I recommend the use of the “Wedgie” for all gardeners, professional and homeowners.

Absolutely I'm still using my Wedgie! The best part of it is that I can put out a flat of plants in no
time at all....half the time of using any other gardening tool! This has also been one of my own personal
"favorite things" (like Oprah) to give as gifts, and I can vouch that each recipient has been thrilled!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart....and my knees!
