What are good pruning shears?

Tips for purchasing pruning shears

Invest in a pair of good durable pruning shears (secateurs). There are two types of pruners: bypass, where the blades pass each other like scissors; and anvil, where one blade cuts onto a flat plate. Which you choose is up to you, but it is worthwhile to pay the price for quality. Cheap pruners will soon get blunt or bent under normal pressure. I highly recommend Felco brand pruners; they may be expensive, but a pair should last a lifetime and the parts are replaceable.
