The Perfect Hand Tools for Pruning Your Plants
A skilled gardener or houseplant parent is never without a good pair of quality shears. In addition to removing damaged or overgrown branches, regular pruning, when properly done, can improve a plant’s air circulation, stimulating its natural healing process to promote healthy growth and resistance against disease. The extremely durable, Swiss-made Felco shears have remained virtually unchanged for decades, and for good reason: They get the job done, and are a worthwhile addition to your gardening tool kit, featuring ergonomic, rubber-coated handles that provide grip and ease of movement. We’re also keen on these elegant Japanese gardening tools from the Beijing- and Hangzhou-based Fnji Furniture, made with solid-cast zinc-aluminum alloy that will accrue a pleasing, well-worn patina with use over time.
