EarthWay Garden Seeder
Lightweight and inexpensive, the EarthWay Garden Seeder is the push planter for small planting jobs. The EarthWay seeder takes the guesswork out of planting any row crop

The EarthWay is handy for seeding trials, and can also be used to fill in skips in larger plantings.

Each EarthWay seeder comes with 6 different seed plates: corn, bean, pea, radish, carrot, beet. Optional plates are available for additional crops: cauliflower/broccoli, cucumber, popcorn, lima bean, and carrot-light.

Here’s how it works:

  • Install one of the precision seed plates that best fits your seed,
  • Adjust the depth of planting on the ground opener,
  • Set your 30” long row marker for the desired width,
  • Fill the seed hopper with seeds,
  • Begin pushing in your well tilled soil.
Each EarthWay Garden Seeder (1001-B) comes with 6 Standard Seed Plates listed below. If you need a "replacement-set" of standard EarthWay plates, order 1 each of the below plates ($6.50 per plate / $39 for all 6).
