Making the Right Cut with Cutting Tools

So many great cutting tools are available for gardeners! This area has seen remarkable innovation in recent years, making everything from harvesting flowers and fruit to major pruning jobs neater and more efficient than ever before. Treat yourself to some good cutting tools — they make life (and plant, tree, and shrub maintenance) so much easier.

Keep 'em clean. As with digging tools, or any garden tool at all for that matter, cutting tools get dirty with use. If you're good about cleaning them after each use or at least when grit, sap, or pitch builds up on their blades, they'll serve you much better and for much longer.
