Choosing Secateurs

Bypass Secateurs


Ideal for soft stems and small woody stems.
The blade ‘passes by’ a metal foot and cuts the stem.

Anvil Secateurs


The blade presses down onto a metal anvil base and cuts the stem.
This type is for the harder woody stems of shrubs and trees.

Both types rely on the blade being sharp so the stem is cut and not crushed.
Crushed stems allow more infection sites in the plant which, if infected, can then kill the plant.
Keep blades sharp with a sharpening stone.
