Pruning plants is a great way to shape the way a plant develops and grows. Pruning shears can help trim away dead parts of plants that can hurt yields. However, if you are dealing with smaller herbs or flowering plants that require more precision, a sharp pair of pruning snips cannot be beat. Gardening tools such as pruning snips can be great for removing leaves that are using more energy than they create, harvesting fruit, or collecting flowers.
Other accessories that can help along in the process are a Trimbin to use to collect your harvest and a pair of black gloves to keep your hands clean while trimming your plants.
