A perfect combination of cutting precision and comfort for deadheading, cutting herbs and more.
Enhanced to maximize leverage where you need it most, so you can power through stems and light branches up to 3/4" diameter with ease.
1. The Micro Tip Floral Snip and PowerGear 2 pruner make easy work of cutting through thick and woody stems and flowers like the ones used in this arrangement. These tools give quick and clean cuts each time.
2. After choosing a big, wide-mouthed vase, gather an assortment of leafy stems. The thicker, woodier branches will serve as an anchor to hold all the other stems in place. The first branches will also create the basic shape of the arrangement.
3. The next step is to add in lots of greens and whites in varying textures and sizes. Green viburnum, pieris japonica, white astilbe, star of Bethlehem, and hellebores are all great options.
4. Finally, to give the arrangement that “wow factor,” pops of hot pink ranunculus and spots of black scabiosa can be added to create the finishing touches.
