Planters basket

Previous - Next

1821. The planters' basket is a flat, rectangular utensil of wicker-work or boards, partitioned into three or more parts, for the purpose of carrying with the gardener when about to plant or remove plants. One division is for the plants taken up; another for the plants to be planted; and a third for the tools to be made use of, and for any decayed parts of plants, stones, weeds, or other refuse. By using such a basket the young gardener may proceed in his operations with order, accuracy, and neatness.
