And when I say pruning loppers, I’m not talking about small pruning shears that fit in one hand and are good for pruning and other small plants. I’m talking about large, powerful pruning loppers designed to cut through sapling trees more than an inch thick with little effort on my part.
Use sharp scissors, a knife, or small pruners to snip steps from your plants. Cut when leaves are dry and free from dew (late morning or in the evening).
TOOLS AND MATERIALS - Sharp scissors, knife, or small pruners - Twine, string, or rubber bands - Paper bags (optional) - Cookie sheet or cooling rack (for oven drying method)
For many pruning jobs, a small hand pruner will do the trick, but when the going gets tough, you'll need a hand saw. Dave shares some thoughts he has about a great hand saw from Felco.
