The Felco Pruner no. 7 is pricier than the classic no. 2 model, but the rotating rubber handle provides an ergonomic grip that doesn’t chaff your hands to death while you are tackling tough stalks. Buy them locally at: Island Garden Center, Portsmouth. About $84.
And for those pesky scrapes and cuts on your fingers that can’t catch a break because you’ve got your hands in mud every day, a petrochemical free option from Dr. Hauschka. Buy it locally at: The Green Grocer, Portsmouth. $29.95.
