It is so small that we end up wasting most of the seed where we do not want it to go. A few taps and shakes and you can control the flow of seed.
This seeder has a numbered clear dome with ascending seed sized openings, from completely closed (0) increasing in steps to (5), which looks to be about 3/8" diameter, a pretty large seed would fit through that one.
Carrot seeds are very small and I believe you have a lot less waste of seeds using this. Seeds are very expensive and spreading them more evenly stops that waste. Plus, being able to fill the cap and take it outside, is better then taking a package out.
It is not too large for your hand and the dome comes off easily to fill the body with seeds, and the dome reinstalls just as easily. All told it is a helpful too for small seed planting.
