  1. Using pruning shears  is a essential gardening tool used for effective and safe gardening. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to use pruning shears correctly:

    1. Inspect Your Pruning Shears: Before using them, make sure your pruning shears are clean and in good working condition. Check for any rust, damage, or loose parts. Clean the blades with a damp cloth and, if necessary, lubricate them according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
    2. Select the Right Time: Choose the appropriate time to prune your plants. Generally, it’s best to prune when the plant is dormant (late winter or early spring for many deciduous trees and shrubs) or after flowering for flowering plants.
    3. Identify What to Prune: Before you start cutting, identify the branches or stems you want to remove. Look for dead, damaged, diseased, or crossing branches, as well as any growth that is obstructing airflow or light.
    4. Use the Correct Cutting Technique:
      • Clean Cut: Always make clean cuts. Position the pruning shears about ¼ inch above a healthy bud,
