Kitchen Garden Best Buy and Top Picks

Here are our favourite gardening products for August, chosen for their quality, effectiveness and value for money.

BEST BUY

HEDGE TRIMMER

Advert

This HT20 hedge trimmer adjusts through 135 degrees, allowing you to cut flat on the tops of high hedges while keeping the sides nice and neat. The precision Hedge Trimmer blades will cut through stems up to 15mm thick. The Lithium-ion battery gives a runtime of up to 45 minutes with a charge time of four hours.

If you have lots of hedge, and especially tall ones, this will be just what you need. We liked the adjustable head for different angles (acute and obtuse, so very versatile) and the length of handle. Very light, so perfect for sustained use.
