Best garden secateurs

by Abby Nair |

Secateurs are an indispensable tool in your garden armoury. Pruning is essential in keeping your trees, shrubs and bushes looking neat and tidy, as well as helping to regenerate new growth – and that’s where a decent pair of secateurs can help!

The type of secateurs you require is dependent on the task at hand; if you will use them for more delicate plants, flowers or shrubs, you are best suited to bypass secateurs. However, if you plan on pruning thick tree branches, I would recommend opting for a pair of anvil secateurs which should make light work of the task.

We have complied this list of recommended secateurs to help you tackle a range of different tasks, taking factors such as cost, durability and ease of use into consideration.
