Now is a great time to get your gardening tools ready for spring.
You should clean and sharpen your tools, but how is that done?
Check out the instructions below:
- Here’s a video from University of California Master Gardeners in Sacramento County on how to sharpen pruners. They show you the supplies you’ll need, then they demonstrate exactly how to use them. It totally demystifies sharpening pruners.
- Here’s a slightly different way to sharpen pruning shears.
- The National Gardening Association moves on to other tools: loppers, shovels, spades and hoes.
