My inspiration for gardening came from my grandfather who was a very passionate, amateur gardener. A few years ago we inherited all his gardening tools, many of which were decades old and it reminded us of a time when tools were built to last the lifetime of the gardener and required upkeep and maintenance.
Our experience until recently was quite the opposite. We had purchased what we thought were quality tools, only to have them break after a few months or years – in fact, I remember one that only lasted a couple of weeks before falling to pieces.
Felco has put us back on track because they make tools that are expertly built and thoughtfully crafted, utilising Swiss precision, and if anything does need replacing it doesn’t render the tool useless because we can easily purchase the required spare part. This supports our buy well, buy once and sustainable values.
Here we share our five Felco pruning shears which comprise of four secateurs and one lopper.
