The Majority of gardeners name the pruner as their most important garden hand tool. With Pruners being such an important tool for gardeners, Richina offers a wide range of pruners so that you can choose the right tool for your specific pruning job: from Grass Shears Pruining Shears, Hedge Shers,Loppers and telescopic tree pruners.
How to choose the right Garden Pruner, Bypass or Anvil?
With a bypass cutting tool, you draw a curved or straight blade past another blade - this creates a scissor-like motion that works well for cutting live green plants. The spongy, firm outer wall surrounding the stem yields easily to that bypass motion.
With an anvil cutting tool, you bring down a straight blade against a wide anvil usually made of steel or hard rubber. Anvil pruners are better suited for dead and dried-out plants - the crushing motion causes the brittle stem to kind of explode and separate.
