At least two of our garden rebels here in the nursery swear by these micro trimmers. Only seven inches long and about an inch wide when closed, this Precision Micro Trimmer fits nicely into apron pockets or holsters, so it's always available for tidying up hanging baskets, container planters, or any wayward stems in the garden. The narrow blade lets you trim a stem right back to the main branch if needed, and works wonders when deadheading. The easy-to-use locking mechanism can be opened or closed with one hand. The steel blades can be re-sharpened quickly with our multi-purpose tool sharpener so you'll always have clean cuts.
