14 Jun Choosing the right secateurs for your flowers
Pruning and trimming can be a real pain if you don’t have the right equipment to keep your flower displays in tip top condition. That’s why we should take a look at secateurs as they will solve a whole host of problems including how well your flower arrangement will take. Personally I really like a set that have some kind of resistance and shoot back open for me but there are plenty that find these uncomfortable to user so we will go through all of the possible problems that you may encounter.
Using secateurs to trim roses
Roses are quite a hardy shrub to cut through so you need to make sure you have the best secateurs at hand for the job. In the resource highlighted you’ll find a whole host of really important and useful flower and garden secateurs. Personally I really like to go with a pair of secateurs that feel good in the hand. It’s really important when you consider that a comfortable pair of rubber grip cutters will really make going through thick chunky wood quite a significantly easier process. Any shrub that has branches that are over 10mm or so to cut is a recipe for needing the right tools at hand.
What to watch of for when buying secateurs
One of the biggest problems your face when buying secateurs is the fact that they simply have so many different varieties and it’s really hard to know that you’re actually getting good value. Some of the times you think that you’re going to be buying yourself a really high quality set of secateurs and actually all you’ve actually really bought yourself is a set from China that’s incredibly low quality and really don’t last very well. The end up rusting and causing you all kinds of problems which is really not very helpful when you’re trying to maintain a beautiful flower garden.
Personally when I’m looking for a second tears I’ll be looking to find that they’ve actually been oiled and Grace in advance. This will mean that you’ve probably got some kind of high-quality Sheffield steel while similar which will result in an extremely durable and long lasting service secateurs. One of the most important things to consider as well as has the blades been tempered and hardened properly. Because if the blade itself isn’t actually that strong then you’ll struggle to actually cut through all of these branches. Roses and flowers are two different things granted but ultimately you want to set of sectors that can really get through good sized chunks of branch and flower.
Maintaining a set of secateurs once you’ve bought them
One of the most overlooked in important aspects of owning a set of secateurs is how that you look after them. Because if you are only intended on spending something like £50 or more for a set of really high quality blades that cut through flowers and make your flower gardens look absolutely perfect then you makes sense that you want to make these last and hopefully you’ll be able to get almost a lifetime out of them. One of most important ways in which you can ensure that the last long is bio oil in Greece in them at any time during the off-season. It’s also worth making sure that every time you use them at the end of the day simply wipe blades down and then and you can also add something like wax or oil.
