As anyone who does their own landscaping, lawn maintenance or gardening knows, a lot of how hard the work is can be dependent upon the tools you have at your disposal. As a lover of rose bushes, keeping them alive and well groomed with a pair of cheap, dull pruning shears is a losing battle. Some of my rose bushes are very picky and need to be pruned back “just so” in order to keep them healthy and blooming for a full season.
In the past, I have lost a few knockout & patio rose bushes (yes, those hybrids and non-heirloom roses are the toughest) because my pruning tool was not making them very happy.
I was so excited to get the opportunity to try out these Titanium Pruning Shears By Haus & Garten.
One look at these gorgeous things had me really excited. I hope that the picture does it justice in showing the quality of craftsmanship in the manufacturing of these. They are heavy duty pruners!! Just look at the work they put into the design to protect the spring, and by proxy, your hands from ever getting pinched in the spring. I may just be clumsy, but I have gotten the skin between my forefinger and thumb caught in springs before. It hurt. Bad.
My first test of these Titanium Pruning Shears By Haus & Garten was on my 4-year-old peach hybrid mini-patio rose bush. I am in awe of this overly gorgeous, full-blooming bush. I just think she is gorgeous. (Ok, don’t tell the other: she’s my favorite.) The buds on this bush are very small, and (I hope it shows in the picture) dainty. A sharp angled cut gets the best results for a rebloom.
These did just that!! Straight through with one easy closure. I know they are sharper because they are brand new, so I did most of the patio rose while they were sharp, leaving 2 areas still in need of some minor pruning, and went to work on the hardest things in my yard to prune. The privet hedge.
Mine are probably 10 foot high, and I cut them a lot in order to get a kind of “living fence” in the summer for a little pool privacy in my backyard. So I hacked away at some of the branches that were in the way of mowing or growing through the chain link fence to get the blade to dull so that I could gauge how these will hold up over time.
They still did wonderfully!! My rose is so happy!!
I have more to prune back, like my lilac bush that I am grooming to be more of a tree than a bush, and a climbing rose bush; so these will definitely get a workout.
The only foreseeable issue that may come up (as far as I can tell) is that the tool to loosen and tighten the blade is a bit awkward as far as a storage/organization issue is concerned. I will definitely have to make sure that this tool is stored when not in use in the same place each time. I do have a habit of losing things.
I will edit this post if any issues arise in my use of this tool, but for now, I couldn’t be happier.
If you need a great trimmer to get your landscaping in shape this year, I highly recommend Titanium Pruning Shears By Haus & Garten.
You won’t be disappointed.
