Users comments
This pruner is the user’s most useful garden tool. It is particularly useful for roses because he can avoid the thorns. Several examples of practical garden tools can be found in the book: “Möjligheternas trädgård” (“Garden of Possibilities”). The book is available in Swedish libraies (last checked June 2017).
