A tulip garden trowel has a deep dished blade with three sharpened tips on the end, which create the shape of a tulip.
It is used to plant flowers into heavy clay soil. The tips on the end of the blade help to cut through the clay, which would be difficult with a normal garden trowel blade.
The sharpened tips allow the blade to cut through roots whilst digging a hole for planting. By cutting through the roots there is more space for the new plant’s roots to spread and grow, making it healthier.
