Gardening Tools

People who enjoy gardening might enjoy receiving a gift of good quality gardening tools. Or you might want to treat yourself to some quality tools like pruning shears or a folding saw. Where does one shop to be assured of a quality product that won’t fall apart after a few years of use?

Well, many years ago a horticulturist told me about Florian gardening products.  So that is what TheGardenLady bought. Florian manufactures their products in the US. This is an American company that manufactures in the states. I like to buy Made in America products whenever I can. Florian gives a life-time guarantee for their products. This is also something greatly appreciated. And every year Florian has a booth at the Philadelphia Flower Show where they sharpen your tools free of charge. TheGardenLady and friends take our shears to the show every year where they are sharpened- no questions asked. I have their ratchet type hand pruner that is easy to use and makes a nice cut. TheGardenLady has no vested interest in telling you this. I just like to rave about a good product.

Other gardeners have used Fiskars gardening tools and are happy with them. This is a huge holding company from Finland that sells other products. Their gardening tool headquarter branch seems to be in Wisconsin. I have never used their products.

The Japanese are excellent gardeners and they make outstanding knives, so they must have excellent gardening tools. TheGardenLady has never tried any of the Japanese products. But this site claims that Okastune is the best manufacturer of garden tools in the world. At some of the prices, they better be good. But they are for a rich man’s purse, not something I can afford. If their items are in your price range, check out these tools.
