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 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 give 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.

Fiskars Garden Tools

I am a big fan of Fiskars garden tools.

After buying on a budget cheap Chinese junk garden tools I realized that if I wanted a quality tool that would virtually last me a lifetime I would have to pay more to get the quality and lifespan  I desired.

All Fiskars are made in Europe and are a Finnish firm.

Another great thing about these tools are that they are ergonomic.

So over the past few years I have been steadily building up my collection of these great tools (see picture).



Some I have been given by Fiskars but the majority I have bought myself.

I have never had any sort of problem until now.

The cord on my Telescopic Tree Pruner snapped and as much as I tried to replace the cord the more frustrated I became, I just could not get it right and yes I did download the instructions.




So at $200 plus it is an expensive tool to purchase and I am coming up to the time where all my Custard Apple trees will be needing their annual prune.

I noticed while shopping in our local Bunnings that Fiskars tools have a 25 year guarantee.

I will let Fiskars know and hopefully may have a positive outcome.
