A dibber is an essential tool for preparing flowerbeds and garden patches. Its pointed end helps to dig holes in the soil for planting. You can make one at home or purchase one at a garden store. There are many types of dibbers available, including straight, T-handle, and trowel-style. If you have a small garden, you can use a watering can instead of a garden hose.
