Forum home Tools and techniques


I have Trigger Finger in all fingers and thumbs (being diabetic) and am finding it difficult to use secateurs because of the gripping required.   Can anyone recommend what might be the best tools for the various jobs

    You may find it easier using some ratchet secateurs. There is a website called Fred’s shed, he reviews various garden tools and products. He himself has disabilities so he usually includes tools to help people with arthritis etc. Might be worth a look.

    I agree Fed's Shed is a good place.
    I've always been pleased with any of his recommendations.
    I did email him once with some questions about shredders and he was extremely helpful.
