Seeding your garden doesn’t have to be a chore.

This simple yet versatile seeder is perfect for well prepared seed beds. It makes it simple to open soil, space, plant seeds then pack the soil over those seeds... Without ever getting on your hands and knees.

Simply walk behind this ultra-efficient tool and let it do all the hard work for you! It will accurately plant small to large seeds effortlessly. Next? Sit back, smile and watch your lush, perfectly laid out crops grow.

Built to work in well-prepared seed beds in any soil. It is also the only one that works in fine sandy soils and soils that get very airy or fluffy after rototilling.   NOTE: It is NOT meant for planting in crusted or non-worked soil, it needs a crumbly prepared seed bed.   (our Push Planter model is better at handling crusted or hard soil)

Customer Reviews of the Hoss Garden Seeders

"It worked very well everything planted came up and spacing worked out good no thinning yet. My Hoss seeder is made well and easy to use no much of a learning curve just start planting. Shipping was very quick two days and at my door in Northern Michigan."

Don, in US  

"The device came on time and packed well. It's sturdy! It does a good job in uniform, pre-dug, flat soil. Not so great on less even or clumpy soil surfaces. Small seeds are problematic - too tight and the seed discs wont spin - to loose and the small seeds collect under the disc rather than being planted. I ended up planting the carrots, radishes and lettuce by hand."

Large Home Garden, from NY  

"I must say the unit I purchased is well made and is a pleasure to use. I planted a 1/4 acre of southern peas in no time. Seem to have a good stand. The standard plates will not plant large beans so I will have to custom fit a plate. Have found no problems with this planter, and the cultivator does the job. "

CemGem, in TN  

"The Hoss Tools seeder is an excellent, well designed, well made tool. Though this is only the first season of use, it is obvious this tool will last many years."

William, in CO  

"I am very pleased with the Hoss Wheel Hoe and Planter that I purchased from easy digging. I have used it to plant collard greens and carrots so far. I love it! It does a great job and it is very easy to use. The order and shipping was fast and easy. From all of the positive things said, by past buyers, I knew this was the company that I was going to use. I was not disappointed! This is high quality tools, so the price is higher. You get what you pay for! One more thing, It took me a fraction of the time to plant with this tool."

How To Use This Garden Seeder

Rather than explaining with words, here are a few videos showing it being used.


This video shows all the details.   Great way to see how it is constructed. He shows it from all angles, and explains how the seed plates work. It's a little long, but well worth watching his review.

 


Shows the loose fluffy soil this seeder can handle.   In this video they are planting a long bed of salad greens. This tilled soil is very loose and soft. Notice how deep his footprints are, and how the fine soil moves.

Six seed plates for the most common garden crops are included with this seeder. They are listed as plates 1 through 6 below.

There are optional plates 7 to 10, and blank plates in three thicknesses, which are also described below.

Plates 1 through 6 are included with the Hoss seeder and with the Hoss Push Planter.

  • #1 – broccoli, cabbage, turnips, mustard and other fine seeds (8 holes, 3/32″ thick)
  • #2 – onion, similar small seeds (6 holes, 3/32” thick)
  • #3 – okra, and {pelleted* carrots, lettuce, chard and beets} (6 holes, 3/16” thick)
  • #4 – small sweet corn, popcorn (4 holes, 3/16” thick)
  • #5 – small peas and beans (6 holes, 1/4” thick)
  • #6 – medium beans, peas, large sweet corn, field corn (4 holes, 1/4” thick)

Plates 7 through 10 are optional plates. They can be purchased individually or as a set at the Seed Plate page.

  • #7 – radish, leek, asparagus, spinach (6 holes, 3/32” thick)
  • #8 – cucumber, watermelon (2 holes, 3/32” thick)
  • #9 – butterbeans, lima beans (2 holes, 3/16” thick)
  • #10 – squash, pumpkin (1 hole, 3/16” thick)

There are Blank plates that you can drill for special seeds or spacing. They can be purchased the Seed Plate page.

  • Thin Blank Plate - 3/32" thick
  • Medium Blank Plate - 3/16" thick
  • Thick Blank Plate - 1/4" thick

*Note: These 4 seeds are pelleted to allow them to work in walk-behind seeders. Raw (non-pelleted) seeds for these 4 crops do not work well in ANY seeder.

This seed planter uses flat round seed plates that are 3/32", 3/16" or 1/4" thick for small, medium, and large seeds. Holes are drilled through these plates to create seed spacings ranging from 1-1/4" up to 19". The seed plate makes one revolution for every 19" of ground travel - so plate with 1 hole gives 19" spacing, 2 holes give 9.5" spacing, 3 holes give 6.3" spacing, etc.

Product Specifications:

Each Hoss Garden Seeder includes:

Steel Wheels - 15" Diameter - 3/8" bore with bronze bushings

This Hoss seeder is made the way things used to be: Strong, Simple, and Reliable. It is made with 18 pounds of steel. The only plastic parts are the collection of seed plates, and the hopper they fit into.

The handles are made by an Amish family business from Ash, and strong hardwood. Now you can buy a garden seeder online that you can pass down to the next generation of gardeners someday.

The supplied Seed plates 1 to 6 are for common veggies like...
Large seeds (peas, beans, field corn, etc).   Medium seeds (sweet corn, okra, pelleted lettuce/carrots/beets, etc).   Small seeds (broccoli, cabbage, onion, turnips, etc).   For more details, see the Seed Plates tab above.

 

Additional Details:

Some of the other highlights of this seeder design include the coulters, or disc opener, that it uses to create a furrow for the seeds. Check out the picture in the image gallery above.

This rotating disc mechanism pushes the soil down and apart, while seeds fall down through the steel tube that passes down between the back of the pair of discs. Its advantage over a shoe or plow style furrow opener is that it does not hook and drag along stringy decaying plant matter from the soil.

The depth of the furrow is controlled by turning a large knob located between the front wheel and the seed hopper.

There is also a kickstand on this model that keeps it standing upright while you are not using it.

Is the Hoss Seeder right for me?

Well we hope so, but you will have to decide. There are some easy clues to help you decide...
> If you have a big garden, then a push seeder of one type or another is definitely handy. For a tiny garden, it is more of a luxury than a necessity.
> If you have fine sandy soil, or soil that gets all airy and fluffy when tilled, then stick with this Hoss garden seeder.
> But if you have normal soil, and you ALSO want to be able to plow and weed with your machine, then check out the Hoss cultivator with the Push Planter seeding attachment.
