I am an Avid Fiskars Fan

We've used Fiskars scissors for years and years. Add to that Fiskars lopping shears, extra long handled hedge shears, hand pruners and various hand tools with that distinctive orange trim on the handles.

A few weeks ago I entered a giveaway on North Coast Gardening blog and was a fortunate winner of a pair of Fiskars newest, Quantum hedge shears.

 They came packed in plenty of brown paper in a sturdy carton. The blades are  protected by a reusable plastic shield.

These shears have the gear mechanism that makes Fiskars shears and loppers so easy to use and really sharp non-stick blades.

The handles have a cork grip, something new and really comfortable.

I didn't shear much hedge yet; the weather is damp and what Mama used to call 'Disagreeable' but I snipped a bit of boxwood just to see. These are going to be one of my favorite garden tools.


  1. Wow what a wonderful pair of hedge trimmers. I have some Fiskar's tools too and like them.

  2. Congratulations! I won something on another blog last week - it hasn't arrived yet but even notification feels a little like a visit from Santa.


I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
