I love my Felcos. I always have these handy. Why do I like them so much? Well, it makes pruning so easy. I use them everyday in the nursery, then go home and use them some more.Yvonne points out how easily you can change the blade and the springs when necessary, which is an awesome feature of Felco pruners.

Unfortunately, I’ve only found one place locally that occasionally stocks the Bahco pruners, and that is the saw shop on Alliance near Foster in Arcata. I think I need to pester our local nurseries to begin carrying the Bahco brand, so you all can try them out and choose for yourself.
