Pruning tools can be essential for keeping your climbing plants in tip-top condition. Common pruning tools include shears, secateurs, lopping shears, and saws. Shears are used to trim away small branches and thin shoots. Secateurs are helpful when cutting hardier branches, while lopping shears can reach further into the plant and make larger cuts. Saws can be used to cut thicker branches. It is important to keep these tools sharpened regularly - ensuring that they are in good working order will make pruning easier and safer!
