Bypass secateurs are another important tool for beginners as they are used for pruning, clipping, and tidying up.
Isobel said, “Considered an ‘investment’ by some gardeners, it can be worth spending a little more on. So expect to pay more than £ 20.
“Secateurs require maintenance – if they are well oiled and sharp, their lifespan is extended.
“Some come with spare blades and springs, and a colorful handle will also help if you tend to toss your secateurs in the garden trash!”
Isobel recommends the RHS recommended Burgon and Ball Bypass Secateurs.
