Bypass Pruners

I am not the normal lady that has more jewelery than I can wear, but I have to admit,”pruner addict” would be a fair and reasonable description when it comes to my gardening habits. Let’s be honest, it’s a healthy addiction, and I just don’t see what is so weird about asking for a new pair of Left Handed bypass pruners for my Christmas stocking instead of chocolate!
There are many different types of pruners available to all levels of gardeners, and it is important to know what they do, and how to use them properly.
1. The bypass pruner is sharpened on the outside blade edge that slides past a hook. They make clean cuts, close to the stem, and are best used on branches 1/2 inch in diameter or smaller. This is the most popular type of pruner.
