Pruning shears

Pruning shears

A good pair of secateurs is indispensable for every (hobby) gardener.

You can choose between bypass or anvil shears. A bypass pruning shear offers precision and is suitable for young, soft wood. It works with two blades that cut alongside each other. Anvil shears offer strength and are more suitable for dead wood because they damage the plant tissue. You can recognise them because they have a blade that lands on an anvil.
