New No-Dig Gardening or Zero-Cultivation Method: Make a drill 1 inch deep and fill with a mixture of one part soil and one part sifted compost.

What is a Drill in Farming?
by: Countryfarm Lifestyles

Hi Gerald

To make a drill, is a term in planting seeds and seedlings that is connected to using a dibber also known as a dibble; a pointed stick for making holes (drills) into the soil to plant either seeds or seedlings.

It really is just a fancy name for "making a hole" and planting in that, rather than broadcasting seed.

Hope this helped!
