What are the Gardena Premium Secateurs like to use?

These aluminium secateurs feel strong and robust. Their hardened-steel blades cut cleanly and strongly and have a handy wire cutting notch at the base. The metal handles are comfortable with  plastic inserts to make them feel warmer, but the bottom one gets slippery in wet weather. They feel balanced but long and only larger hands can reach the safety catch, which is placed on the top.

Are the Gardena Premium Secateurs good value for money?

Expensive compared to others we tested but these are well designed, long lasting and performed well. Replacement parts are available, and the secateurs come with a long warranty of 25 years, so we think they’re good value for money.

Who are the Gardena Premium Secateurs most useful for?

With their long handles and hard-to-reach catch, these secateurs are best for gardeners with larger hands. They’re ideal for all pruning jobs around the garden.
