One thing about me is that I have been known to abandon my tools in the garden as I rush off to do something else, leaving them at the mercy of the elements. My secateurs are made from a special stainless steel, making them outstanding for cutting as well as being rust-free. They are smaller than the usual secateurs so fit perfectly in my hand, pocket and even my handbag.

Sophie Conran Gardening Tools:
"As a gardener I have always dreamed of creating a range of garden tools and accessories. I believe that tools should be functional and beautiful, and make each job a pleasure.
One of the problems I face as a women when gardening is that my hands are generally too small for standard tools. My designs specifically address this issue and I hope will add to the joy of gardening.
The better the tools, the easier the job."
