Pruning Shears Explained: Choose the Best Pruners For Your Garden

Pruning Shears Explained: Choose the Best Pruners For Your Garden

Pruning is one of the most common tasks we have in the garden, so it makes sense to have a full understanding of the different types of pruning shears out there. From anvil pruners to bypass pruners, we’ll talk about the different types, shapes, and technologies that these garden tools use to help you get the job done in the garden.

I’m a big fan of going deep on the research and nerding out so you don’t have to, and hopefully after this video you’ll be able to pick the type of pruner that works best for your preferences and garden.

    Great video!! Thank you!!

  3. James Halleron on June 27, 2022 at 10:08 pm

    Thank you for explaining the differences. I am being taught by a master gardener on how to prune instead of pulling out the hedge trimmers that butcher the poor plant. Thank you again.

  14. Adrian Mendoza on June 27, 2022 at 10:23 pm

    I can’t believe I’ve never heard of ratchet pruners!! Exactly what I’ve been needing lately. Thank you for making this video, super helpful 😀

  15. Hula Shack on June 27, 2022 at 10:23 pm

  16. Scott1Lori2 on June 27, 2022 at 10:23 pm

    Felco 2 for live pruning.

  17. Lisa Sun on June 27, 2022 at 10:26 pm

    what do u use for ginger lillies

  18. tom g on June 27, 2022 at 10:28 pm

    great video…. however, I must say that if you have rust on your stainless blade, there are two possibilities. Either it ain’t stainless, or that ain’t rust. The ONLY time I’ve seen rust on stainless was on a boat anchor after years in the salty ocean. Stainless simply doesn’t rust in other conditions.

  19. 手可摘星辰 on June 27, 2022 at 10:28 pm

    Thank you so much for making this video!! I know what pruner I need now!

  20. Arash Sajjadi on June 27, 2022 at 10:28 pm

    Thanks for this useful video🙏🏻🌻🍁

  21. Martha Fleischman on June 27, 2022 at 10:30 pm

    That you , very helpful

  22. ZenOf Plants on June 27, 2022 at 10:31 pm

    I’ve had my steel Fiskars bypass pruners since abt 1997-98. They are still in fantastic shape as I make sure to clean and sharpen them after every season’s use. I also have had my Fiskars Micro-Tip snips for about 10-11 yrs now and they still cut like hot butter. And those poor souls have been left outside accidentally several times. 💚.

    Also, can you show us which veggies would be best to prune? I prune basil, tomatoes and peppers but I’ve never touched cucumbers or others.

  23. Jan Williams on June 27, 2022 at 10:31 pm

    I don’t know how I pick what I use. My first choice is going to be my newest bypass followed by a ratchet pruner. I don’t so much like anvil but I use them when trimming small trees. I have small hands and not that strong so I work with what will do the job with the less effort.

  24. Bill Rainbird on June 27, 2022 at 10:31 pm

    That was awesome, more to it than I thought. Thank you, and more pruning tips will be appreciated.

  25. Raul Rubio on June 27, 2022 at 10:32 pm

    Just FYI – Centurion is having issues on their site… grrrr.

  26. Diane Greiner on June 27, 2022 at 10:36 pm

    Great explanation and tips on these pruners. Thank you so much! 😊

  27. jessie van Swaaij on June 27, 2022 at 10:37 pm

    Fantastic video, everything is very clear to me at last !

  28. Rachel Gomez on June 27, 2022 at 10:37 pm

    Do you put something on the living plan stem to avoid bacteria getting in?

  29. Sean Sankey on June 27, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    REALLY appreciated the clarity and pace of this vid. Exactly what I was after. Thanks so much for putting it out there!

  30. TheKf4pbl on June 27, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    All things equal, stainless is toughfer than carbon steels

  31. IceSheriff on June 27, 2022 at 10:40 pm

    I like the tree in your back ground

  32. queenSummerKeli on June 27, 2022 at 10:40 pm

  33. Selma Martinez on June 27, 2022 at 10:42 pm

  34. TubersAndPotatoes on June 27, 2022 at 10:43 pm

  39. James Halleron on June 27, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    I have started a handyman business and I am learning alot about proper plant care. Yes, I was the guy who used hedge trimmers for all trimming and pruning tasks but I am changing my colors. Thankyou for explaining the differences in hand clippers/ pruners.

  40. WeRquantum on June 27, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    Skillfully done. Thanks.

  41. Levi on June 27, 2022 at 10:49 pm

  45. TheRealParsnip on June 27, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    Could I use a sterile straight razor for garden herbs like mint and basil, and cherry tomato plants etc.?

  46. Holly Mehling on June 27, 2022 at 10:58 pm

    How and when should we sterilize our tools?

  47. Mike Martin on June 27, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    What type of raised bed is behind you in this video ? How does it compare to the birdies metal beds

  48. Richard 'Red' on June 27, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    The latching mechanism on some wears quite quickly and stops functioning. Some also will cease to stop the pruner from spreading so far that the spring will become unhooked and fall to the ground and possibly be lost. I’ve found it difficult to find one that will last in those two areas.

  49. S M on June 27, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    Nice video!!!….for 2 inch dia branch?

  50. Pbua Lily on June 27, 2022 at 11:04 pm
