Hints & Tips
Celebrity gardener Monty Don has underlined just how important secateurs are to gardening professionals and green-fingered enthusiasts alike.
The broadcaster – who is perhaps best known for his work on the popular BBC television series Gardeners' World – shared details on some of his favourite garden tools with the Daily Telegraph.
Secateurs were among these – and the expert acknowledged that there are many different kinds of them, but emphasised their indispensability.
"You should take your secateurs everywhere with you in the garden and keep them sharp," Don remarked, adding: "Otherwise you may as well not bother."
