very handy!

great way to cast seeds. The small ones fall to bottom, though, so were concentrated in 1 area of the garden - guess there's no way around it. The garden was lovely...Read complete review

Tried it once and immediately realized it was a piece of utterly useless junk. American Meadows should be ashamed to peddle such junk.

I ended up buying a professional grade spreader with a 20 lb. capacity hopper on line from another company. It is great.

None of these hand spreaders are worth the shipping costs.

Love your seeds but this thing should be discontinued.

                  This product was broken upon arrival. I was sent another one but it quickly fell apart before I could get all my seeds spread. I tried to repair the unit but I could not get to the area without destroying the spreader. I just gave up on it.

                  I would recommend that you stop selling this product, its probably not worth the headache. Alternatively charge more and offer a high quality substitute.

                      Does not spread seed evenly. Does not spin smoothly. It isnt worth any amount of money. It isnt even worth getting as a free gift. Very disappointing. Aggravating!

                                I used this handheld spreader to plant my All Annual Mixture this past fall. It worked great and was SO easy to use! Much better and more efficient than spreading the seed by hand.

                                Q & A

                                Plant With These:

                                USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                                To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                                • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                                • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
