Bypass secateurs use two blades that glide past each other, enabling a sharp, clean cut, close to the stem or root.
Bypass secateurs are therefore particularly suited for cutting living plant tissue.
They can be used to cut young or soft wood, as well as semi-woody garden bushes and shrubs.
However, as Bypass secateurs do bruise the plant tissue, they should only really be used for cutting or chopping up dead wood.
Quality is important with both types of secateurs: High-quality, sharp blades will give you the optimum cut.
The precision-ground blades allow precise cutting of flowers, twigs and branches. If required, the blades can be exchanged.
The Premium Secateurs are made from high-quality, solid materials, such as stainless steel and aluminium, and are thereby ideally suited for lovers of solid cutting tools.
The GARDENA Aluminium Garden Secateurs B+/L with its stainless steel upper blade and forged re-sharpenable bottom blade; both replaceable, are perfect for cutting flowers, young shoots and fresh wood (up to 22mm).
The extra-narrow cutting head permits particularly precise cutting.
The ergonomically-shaped aluminium handles with two hand positions provide maximum comfort when cutting.
The secateurs have a practical single-hand safety lock for safe storage, wire cutters and a sap groove and are backed with the GARDENA 25 year warranty.
