Finding the right clippers for the job has been an ongoing quest here at Floret for many, many years. During the height of harvest season, the team and I spend long hours in the field cutting flowers, vines, and foliage. We quickly learned which clippers were sub-par. Far too many dulled easily, would stiffen up, were too heavy, or would simply fall apart after moderate use.
After trialling dozens of different pairs, both in the studio and in the flower field, I’ve finally found what I believe to be the perfect flower snips. I can’t stop singing their praises to anyone who will listen. Everyone on the farm now has at least one (or three!) pairs of these versatile tools. They’re perfect for the home gardener or the large scale flower farmer.
I love how these clippers are lightweight, they stay super sharp, are perfectly shaped to rest in the palm of your hand and last for years. No more aching wrists or sore hands at the end of the day like with other types. The thin pointed blades are ideal for harvesting delicate flowers like sweet peas and ranunculus but also handle thicker stemmed varieties such as dahlias and zinnias with ease. We’ve recently added them to the Floret shop.
