Do you need to sharpen garden shears?

Ideally you should sharpen your tools little and often, but have an extra session two or three times a year in preparation for busy seasons. Blunt secateurs and shears, tired after a frantic summer, benefit from a good going over in September when you’ll start cutting back perennials and getting around to yew clipping.

What sharpener is best for pruners?

I find the best way to sharpen pruners is with diamond files. I prefer them to whetstones because they are easy to use, even for a novice. You’ll need three levels of coarseness (known as grits): coarse, fine, and extrafine. The files are inexpensive and will last longer than your pruners.

Can you use a kitchen knife sharpener on garden tools?

Absolutely not. A sharp tool requires less force to make a cut, offering greater control and reducing the chances of slipping or overcutting. Just as a chef sharpens their knife before they start preparing for a lunch service, a gardener should at least sharpen important tools before every gardening session.

Can you sharpen gardening tools?

Wash them in soapy water then dry them. Pruners, loppers and shears are all sharpened in much the same way. Hold the tool firmly in position then pass the sharpener over the edge of the blade. Use a file, whetstone or sharpening stone appropriate to the size of the blade.

How do you sharpen dull tools?

For very dull or nicked edges, start with a mill file or coarse sharpening stone. If the blade is in good shape, begin with a medium or fine sharpening stone. Lubricate the stone (if required), then sharpen by laying the stone flat against the beveled edge of the blade.
