In association with Beechfield Bonsai

Lots of us rediscovered our gardens last year, and some of you may have taken up gardening for the first time. Of course, you need a range of tools to keep your garden in tip-top condition or keep your veg patch under control, and a good pair of secateurs is a vital part of your gardening toolkit.

Whether you’re an experienced gardener, a keen flower arranger, a bonsai enthusiast or even just starting to potter in the garden, these Okatsune secateurs are the ideal tool to have at hand.

Okatsune are a premium quality brand of Japanese garden hand tools. These secateurs are excellent for use around the garden, and regularly get great reviews in Gardener’s World Magazine.

These secateurs are traditionally style bypass secateurs with Okatsune’s distinctive red and white handles. The razor-sharp blades are made of the best Izumo Yasugi steel, which was traditionally used for Samurai swords.

They are available in a range of sizes and cost around £43 for the 103 standard size. This is a great investment, as with a little maintenance you can expect Okatsune secateurs to last a lifetime!

    Cherry trees. Although the birds get more fruit then we do, I do love both the blossom and the fruit.

  2. Maggie Norvell says:

    I have a lovely white fuschia shrub that I grew from a cutting. Last year it was in flower from March until December. Lovely !

  3. Jill Osborne says:

    It has to be the cherry tree I planted 14 years ago when my dear dog died. It is in her favourite place in the garden and has grown really big now. The birds usually get the cherries before me, but I don’t mind.

  4. Julie Tift says:

    I love my dahlias and have a few different ones. The flowers are so pretty and very different to each other.

  5. Sue McCarthy says:

    I’d say Buddleia as it is so good for wildlife, not only insects but goldfinches feed on the seeds in autumn.

  6. Margaret Clarkson says:

    I like roses, we have standard roses, dog roses and miniature roses in the garden. I love them all.

  7. Hayley Atkins says:

    My favourite garden tree is Tetrapanex Rex.I am transforming my sunny but rather boring patio area into a tropical ‘jungle’ with lots of big leavy foliage plants and this ‘T Rex’ is the monster plant taking centre stage.

  8. Patricia Avery says:

    We have several red peonies from a cutting from my late Mum’s garden many years ago. It was one of her favourite plants and every time I look at them in bloom I think of my lovely Mum.

  9. Tina H says:

    I love my mock orange shrub. I planted it when my cat died and now it flowers every year around his anniversary.

  10. Caroline Tinsley says:

    I have a pair of beautiful camellias, one pink and one red, which are just coming into flower now. I prune them in May, a job for some really sturdy secateurs!

  11. KRYSTAL Light CUNNINGHAM says:

    I ADORE Acer trees, the different colours they turn in the seasons and also Heucheras xx thanks for the chance xx

  12. susan middleton says:

    Tamarix tetrandra Light, feathery large plumes of pink flowers beautiful when a light breeze blows keep mine pruned prefer it as a small shrub a delight to have in the garden.

  13. jo liddement says:

    A Victoria Plum tree that I planted from a sapling 19 years ago. It produced plums for the first time last year.

  14. Carol Thomas says:

    I love our cherry tree and flowers wise, then it will be tulips and daffodils. I can’t split between the two flowers for personal reasons

  15. Peter Ogg says:

    I am trying to grow a plum tree. Don’t think I will be on this planet by time it produces fruit – if it ever does.

  16. Julia Linsley says:

    I’m addicted to Fuchsias ! So much so that I called my daughter Fuchsia. I love all the different varieties shapes and colour combinations

  17. Bridget Anderson says:

    The mock orange shrub in my garden. The twice a year blossom is so fragrant and really pretty. Also the shrub is tall and provides us with some privacy.

  18. Jane Willis says:

    Rudbeckia – as well as a beautiful colour in the summer, the seeds left behind after the flowers fade are much loved by goldfinches. We leave the dead stalks in place right through the winter and have dozens of goldfinches visiting every day, so the plants actually bring colour to the garden all year round!

  19. Terri Dudey says:

    I love nasturtiums so colourful and my 2 indoor bunnies love to eat them too as they really good for them xx

  20. Isabell Whitenstall says:

    My favourite garden plant is the dahlia because there are so many different kinds in so many different colours

  21. Nicola S says:

    I have a Cotinus that I love. I caught my puppy right after he dug it up and was racing around the garden with it in his mouth. I thought the worst had happened but I replanted it in a pot and it’s doing ok.

  22. Rachel Livett says:

    I am a massive fan of wisteria! Although not the easiest to maintain, its always worth it come spring/ summer time!

  23. Allan Mees says:

    We have a Giant Scabius which grows to about 3m high and is covered in large cream flower heads which are covered in bees and butterflies. After the flowers are gone the stems still provide a feature well into the autumn. Cut back to the ground it will recover and bloom again the following year. This was grown from a single seed head from a nearby wildflower haven.

  24. Jools K says:

    I love my Ficus Bonsai, but for a flowering plant I would choose Anemones. They are some of the first flowers to come through in the Spring, and this year they made it through the snow and frost, and appeared early!

  25. Anna says:

    I love my dwarf fruit trees – cherry, apricot, apple and pears and I get so much fruit from them and beautiful blossom

  26. susan leake says:

    My Magnolia tree in my front garden. Unfortunately the frost always gets the flowers as they are just opening

    Acer Palmatum – at certain times of the day, with the sun just touching the leaves, it turns a glistening, vibrant red, looking awesome!

  28. Rebecca Pick says:

    I love hydrangeas – I have 5 in my garden & they always remind me of a small village we visited in Northern France a few years ago. They were in nearly every front garden & were absolutely beautiful!

  29. Mari Sutherland says:

    My favourite is my old walnut tree. Every year it is very late to green up and I am always worried it has died but then it makes a late come back

  30. Katie Harmer says:

    I absolutely love Wisteria. I am really looking forward to spring to see their gorgeous blooms over some of the old and beautiful houses which share this lovely pocket of countryside with me.

  31. Patricia Bowley says:

    Clematis. So many varieties and colours where you can have one flowering each month of the year. Stunning plants.

  32. Ellie Spider says:

    I love our Fuchsia bush it’s so bright and colourful and they seem to flower for most of the year

  33. Susan Willshee says:

    We have a few acers in the garden and I love them because they are all so different but all have the same wonderful sense of style.

  34. Yvonne Stevens says:

    I love Acers they come in a variety of beautiful colours large or small ideal for any size garden or tub

  35. Edith Sitwell says:

    I love camellia japonica- such beautiful blooms and one of the first to blossom in my garden.

  36. Jules H says:

    Our bay tree that sits by the patio is the gift that keeps giving when I am cooking a savoury dish.

  37. Lucy Wright-Booth says:

    I absolutely love daffodils – such a beautiful colour and they make me so happy that spring is on it’s way!

  38. Hazel Rea says:

    Our Hapil Strawberry plants in the garden are my favourite – they are such a delicious strawberry not available in shops because they do not travel well.

    I have a collection of 250 dahlias that need digging up and stoing each autumn and a berautiful yellow magnolia that I adore.

  43. Victoria Prince says:

    I love snapdragons – my grandparents had them in their garden when they moved house. I was 6 and I was fascinated…I’ve loved them ever since

  44. Anthea Holloway says:

    I love my blackcurrant bushes which provide me with so much fruit and they look lovely too.

  45. Stev Rigby says:

    My favourite garden plant is the apple tree and we have a Millicent Barnes and Blenheim Orange in the garden.

  46. Jean Anderson says:

    I love primroses. They are very pretty and provide hope in spring. This year more than ever we need that hope!! Come on primroses we need you to flower!!

  47. Theresa M says:

    I love my Hazel Tree, but I also have two Eddoes that have sprouted … so hopefully this summer there will be a couple of new kids on the block fighting for the top spot in my heart :0)

  48. Carolyn says:

    I do love a Japanese Acer, so elegant and such beautiful colour leaves most of the year round

  49. Susan Fraser says:

    I do love snowdrops – first flower of Spring, they look so delicate yet they are strong enough to cope with really cold weather

  50. Charlotte Wilde says:

    I love my agapanthas – i love the blue ones for their colour and all of htem for their lovley seed heads

  51. Bev Cannar says:

    My crab apple tree , it’s all year round enjoyment and when the field fares come to take the berries it’s awesome

    It has to be Lavender – the vibrant purplish colour and the calming smell – can’t beat it

  53. Darren Bourne says:

    I love any kind of fruit tree and the spring flowers with their promise of warmer days.

    So many its hard to choose, but I love the sunflower for its vibrancy presence and ability to attract the bees.

  55. Karen R says:

    I love Weeping Willows – as a child I thought they’d be perfect to hide in – and there’s still something magical about them xx

  56. Georgie Wright says:

    Dogwood, they bring height and colour to our garden all year round and we have bird feeders hung in ours and they seem to love them!

  57. Leah Tonna says:

    My Oleanders, hubby comes from Malta where they grow like weeds. We’re lucky they survive on our South facing patio in Sussex, but they do need careful pruning to keep them blossoming & looking beautiful.

  58. Sayeed Rahman says:

    Apple Tree as it reminds me of my childhood and all those autumnal gastronomical treats.

  59. Rebecca says:

    i love my lavender plants – love watching the bees drawn to them. Also my rosemary bush – the bees love that when it is in flower too.
