Deadheading and gathering


Snips & Garden Scissors

… and a few secateurs. Is there anything better than pottering about in the garden with a pair of snips or garden scissors, deadheading and tidying in the cool of a summer’s evening? Or perhaps you’re an early morning garden inspector, with dew on your slippers and a cup of tea going cold back in the house? Why not both? It won’t be July forever you know …
