I review these products during tasks I personally carry out within my garden on a regular basis. Using the right product or tool for the job makes the difference of doing it the easy way or the hard way, so I really value a product which can make my life easier.

I am hoping that garden related companies will send me ‘products’ to test and evaluate. However I must stress that I will not be anything but fair and make no promises to these companies other than to tell the truth. Many of the products here are what I have already purchased for my own gardening use and are happy with.
You may ask, what are your qualifications? Well Judy and I opened our garden through the ‘Australia's Open Gardens’ for
10 years. We now open to support a specific charity.
We had our 18th Open Garden in 2019.
We won Gardening Australia’s 2009 ‘Golden Trowel’, have appeared on the ‘Garden Guru’s and ‘Gardening Australia’ twice and on various other television shows. We have given over 200 presentations to garden clubs on Sub tropical gardening and open our garden for bus tours. What is more important is that we have learnt from our gardening mistakes.

Gardena Secateurs

I am always on the lookout for quality garden tools, there's nothing worse than shoddy cheap and nasty tools especially ones coming from China.
The old saying 'you get what you pay' for is very true.
These Gardena secateurs are brilliant  and come in two different sizes 24mm and a smaller 22mm which is suitable for my wife.
They are made in Germany and have a 25 year warranty, which is pretty amazing.
They feel good in my hand with two different hand settings.
Gardena say they have tested these to 50,000 activations (cuts).
I am impressed and have started to use these around the garden where they will get plenty of use.
