A dibber is a cylindrical
device used to push down semi-solid material.
, a dibber is about an inch wide, and used to push down soil, to make room for bulbs or seeds. At a push1
, the handle of a trowel
or one's finger
both make perfectly acceptible dibbers.
When hand-rolling a cigarette
, a small dibber is used to push down the material to allow a filter
to be inserted. Some lighter
s have a removable flint
assembly that can be used as a dibber.
It is entirely possible that 'dibber' is a chiefly British
word (as microsoft bookshelf
is fond of saying).
