This combined roller and planter can save you a lot of time when transplanting. Equipped with a roller to mark out the alignment and spacing of plants and a frame to secure the trays, the user sits just above the ground, dropping the seedling at the correct interval.
This design was inspired by an implement created on Frank Vuillermet’s farm in Chambéry (Savoie). The 1.0 design is not definitive and needs your comments, ideas and modifications in order for it to evolve.
