tamper
Explanation:
An Italian gardening manual uses the verb "comprimere" to describe the action of tamping down the soil over newly planted seeds in a box. There's a photo and the tool being used is a square piece of wood with a handle screwed into it (generically called an "assicella" in the text).

There are no "svatori", though!
