Ok, my secateurs look a little weary here. I do clean and oil them regularly (honest), but I feel it’s time they had some extra tlc. Felco secateurs seem to be the industry standard. They’re well designed, not cheap, but very reliable and come in numerous models to cater for all needs including left-handed models, swivelling handles ‘to reduce hand fatigue’, and smaller sizes for those with smaller hands.

When rose pruning the other day, I felt mine weren’t quite hitting the mark, and it’s really important to get clean cuts when pruning, so as not to invite infection. So, I’ve ordered myself a new pair of secateurs from the Felco website -they’re not charging for postage and seem to have good deals on ordering holsters too at the moment. I’ve also contacted Burton McCall in Leicester who will give your Felco secateurs a complete service for £19.99 (in Feb 2013) (including return postage). Don’t be put off by their website, which looks more like a swish marketing company. Go through to customer services who are very helpful and informative. Or just send your secateurs off to Burton McCall Ltd, FELCO servicing, 163 Parker Drive, Leicester, LE4 OJP enclosing your cheque for £19.99 (Feb 2015) and your return address. They aim to return your serviced secateurs within 10 working days. As soon as my new secateurs arrive, I’ll be sending my old pair off for a well deserved pampering.
