Town & Country has received a Which? Gardening expert recommendation for one of its new secateurs products.
The company?s Master Gardener Bypass Secateurs were among 12 products tested for the December issue of Which? Gardening magazine.? Each pair was put through a rigorous process including laboratory and garden testing, with experts and an ergonomist putting them through their paces.
Town & Country?s multi-purpose bypass secateurs were recommended by the ergonomist for people with weak grips.? She commented:? ?ideally secateurs should be light and designed to be used one-handed.? The handles should be smooth and comfortable to hold, and when they are fully open they should not overstretch your hand.? You shouldn?t have to apply too much pressure to make a cut and the spring that pushes them apart shouldn?t be???? too strong, as this can make your hand ache after a while.?
She recommended Town & Country?s Master Gardener secateurs saying:? ?This unusual pair has rounded handles that are long enough for most hands, with comfortable, easy-grip rubber sleeves.?? A hook on the lower handle makes them secure to hold. ?You don?t need too much pressure on the handles to make a cut, even on dead wood.? The safety catch is large and simple to operate.?
Town & Country?s chief executive Barry Page said: ?We are delighted to have been given this recognition by Which? Gardening. We know the testing process is a highly rigorous one and to be given the accolade of expert recommendation is a fantastic achievement and a very positive note as we come to the end of another successful year for Town & Country.?
