A Fiskars garden tool giveaway!!!

When I posted about February garden chores last week, I mentioned a Fiskars garden tool giveaway. I finally got the photos ready, and now I can share it with you. I wrote for Fiskars for several years until I wrote my book, The 20-30 Something Garden Guide: A No-Fuss, Down and Dirty, Gardening 101 for Anyone Who Wants to Grow Stuff.

I had to then focus upon book promotion. I still love the people at Fiskars, and they are always so kind to send products to my readers and me. Thank you Fiskars!

Note: This post contains affiliate links so that I get a small commission if you buy a tool. These small commissions make it possible to pay for blog hosting and other trivial things. No, I don’t get rich from blogging. Far from it. Ha!

Fiskars garden tool giveaway. Fiskars PowerGear2™ Lopper (18”) Dee Nash
My favorite Fiskars garden tool hands down, or hands up in this case, are my (18”) PowerGear2™ Loppers. I love them because I can get in the middle of rose bushes and not hurt myself. Here, I’m trimming a holly in my front border. These hollies are always getting out of hand.

My favorite Fiskars garden tool hands down are my Fiskars 18 Inch PowerGear Bypass Loppers. I love these short loppers because I can get in the middle of rose bushes with them and not injure myself. All of the loppers Fiskars makes are wonderful. I use them all the time and have many pair. The longer Fiskars 32-Inch PowerGear Bypass Lopper is great for reaching branches in trees and shrubs.

Another great tool in your arsenal is Fiskars 7-16 Foot Chain-drive Extendable Pole Saw and Tree Pruner Click on the photos below to see them larger.

When we worked on this giveaway, Fiskars let me know they acquired Gilmour in 2015. Gilmour makes sprinklers, hose end sprayers and hoses. I asked if we could also include a sprinkler and hose in the garden tool giveaway this time. They said yes!

Fiskars Micro-Tip Pruning Snip
Fiskars Micro-Tip Pruning Snip

Among Fiskars most sought after tools are the Fiskars Non-stick Softgrip Micro-Tip Pruning Snips. They are great for cutting daffodils and avoiding their sticky latex sap, but they are also used extensively by marijuana growers. Marijuana buds have sticky sap, and the snips’ nonstick coating is great for harvest. Just remember marijuana growing and consumption isn’t legal in Oklahoma so use your snips wisely if you buy them for our state. California, Colorado, Washington, Oregon growers–I’m sure I’m leaving out many states–perform your bud snipping with abandon. For the rest of us, they are great snips to have in the greenhouse because they are small. You can snip with precision.

Fiskars Micro-Tip Pruning Snips are among their most sought after tools.
Fiskars Micro-Tip Pruning Snips are among their most sought-after tools.

All of the Power Gear tools are great because they are easy on arthritic hands and shoulders. I use the Fiskars PowerGear2 Pruner for everything from cutting back Phlox paniculata stems to pruning roses and other shrubs. You get more power with less hand strain. You gotta like that.

Pruning a rose with Fiskars PowerGear 2 Softgrip pruners. That’s just a shadow on my hand. I haven’t gotten some icky grunge or anything.

Fiskars offered to give the following away to one lucky reader:

  • One pair of PowerGear2 Pruners
  • One pair of PowerGear2 Loppers (18 or 35″ your choice)

  • One Chain Drive Extendable Pole Saw & Pruner (7’–16′)
  • One Gilmour hose and one sprinkler
  • You’ll be completely set for spring!

So, here’s how the giveaway works. It starts today and runs through March 23rd at Midnight. To enter, I want you to tell me which Fiskars garden tool you think will be your favorite, and I’ll choose a winner based upon a random number selector. As I wrote above, the giveaway runs through March 23rd because I’m going to be traveling. I’ll announce the winner on March 26th sometime in the afternoon.

  1. I’ve been keeping my out for a good set of loppers! We have lots of things that need trimming regularly.

  2. The PowerGear2 pruners are right up my alley. I have a small pair of Friskars pruners that I love, but these are definitely next level!

  3. Well, I was going to ask for those large loppers, but I just realized that I think I have them already! LOL So I think I’d like to have those micro tip pruners. That’s a niche I could fill in my tool arsenal.

  4. Pretty much any tool would be my favorite!! I’m finally digging into my yard this year, and I have so many plans 🙂

  5. I think the pruners might be used most frequently, but I’m moving to the Skagit Valley later this year and know the Extendable Pole Saw will be a necessity! This is a fantastic package of tools, sure hope you choose me!

  6. I would love to use all of these tools, but my favorite might be the pruning snips- so versatile!

  7. I’m guessing the PowerGear2 Loppers would be my favorite. Living in the mountains means we’ve got some big bushes around the house that could use trimming and longer handles make that easier. 🙂

  8. Thank you the giveaway! I prefer Fiskars tool outside and inside because they always a quality tool and stay sharp longer. My favorite tool is (18”) PowerGear2™ Lopper. It is so easier to cut those branches that are just a tad too big!

  9. The extendable pole and pruner would definitely be the most helpful in the garden; we will be attempting some landscaping this summer and all of these sugesstions are great! Thanks so much!

  10. The pole saw and pruner would be a great tool for those hard to reach areas that need to be trimmed.

  11. I plan to grow my first cut flower garden this spring. I think the micro snips would be perfect for cutting my first flowers! Thank you for the chance to win!

  12. I have never owned micro snips, but I have heard others rave about such tools, so I would love to give them a try!

  13. The SoftGrip Micro Tip Snip seems super versatile in both the flower and veggie gardens 🙂

  14. Those loppers look great! I looked at them in the hardware store last season, but didn’t end up buying them. I would like them to prune back this ancient rose bush in my backyard that I need something really heavy duty for.

  15. I have the 18″ loppers and LOVE them! Being able to win the longer ones would be great! I also use the micro-tips/snips and am ready for another pair so I can get my hubby to join me when harvesting flowers. I prefer Fiskars for most any type of cutting tool – inside or outside the house! (I probably have a dozen different types of scissors for in-home use!)

  16. All of these tools would be welcomed at my house but I would be eapecially excited to have the One SoftGrip Micro Tip Snips. I love to grow flowers and design arrangements so the snips would be perdecr for me! Great give away!

  17. I have never owned loppers, but think they would quickly become my favorite. Just like you, I’d love to be able to trim my roses without sticking my whole hand inside the bush. Fiskars tools are awesome!

  18. The PowerGear2 Loppers. They look like they’ll be great to get into some trees, of which I have a few in need of some loving TLC.

  19. I think I would enjoy the loppers the most. I have the same problem getting poked with thorns. Fingers crossed!!!! 🙂

  20. I’m sure I would use the PowerGear2 pruners the most of all these tools, but when you’re a beginning farmer and money is tight…I’d be grateful to win any of these workhorse tools!! So glad I found your blog!!

  21. The 18″ loppers for sure! Would be a serious upgrade from our current situ, and it is really fun to tell my two-year-old to “hand me those loppers” ?

  22. Gosh, I could really use the power gear 2 soft grip pruners, Micro tip pruning snips, Glimour hose and sprinkler.

  23. I just like the idea of trying to say, “Fiskars SoftGrip Micro Tip Snip” five times!

  24. I would love a pair of the Fiskars Power Loppers, for the very same reason as you – to not get attacked by the thorns from our blackberry bushes

  25. I would love the Bypass Lopper. I just moved in to my new home and the garden needs an overhaul. I will be starting anew and there is a ton of things to be done with my trees and bushes. Thank you for the chance to win!

  26. That sprinkler would make it a whole lot easier to get the wildflower patch going behind my rental apartment instead of the bare compacted dirt that’s there now!

  27. What a great giveaway! My favorite would be the bypass loopers for the exact reason you stated. I have 25 rose bushes and they are dangerous to prune!

  28. In our very hot, humid Kentucky summers the Gilmour hose and sprinkler would be used daily, but I certainly would get great use of all of the other tools, as well. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win these wonderful tools.

  29. I would LOVE the soft grip 2 pruners most. My roses need new sharp TLC and so do my arthritic hands!

  30. Of course I would love all those tools, but I’m pretty sure the Fiskars loppers would be the most used. Thanks for such an awesome giveaway!

  31. Well, I just bought my first house and am totally in need of these tools! I can’t wait to start my flower garden! I think the One SoftGrip Micro Tip Snip would be my favorite because it seems like that’s what I’d use to snip flowers 🙂
    Awesome giveaway!!!

  32. I would love all of them but the extended pole saw and pruners would be the best help here at our home and farm. And I could really use a new hose!
    Glad I found your blog through Floret.

  33. All of these tool are great and must-haves for the garden. One that I can’t do without are the loppers! I Love tree and shrub pruning! It just makes me gitty! Love Love Love it!

  34. I’m thinking the loppers would be the best used in my yard, but it’s hard to choose between them all!

  35. I think the micro snip tips will be my fave, since I like cutting flowers from my cutting garden. Hose are perfect!

  36. My husband borrowed a pole extension pruner from a friend once to tackle some overgrown vines/ brush in our yard…totally amazing!!

  37. What an incredible giveaway! It’s hard to pick just one but I guess I would have to choose the Extendable saw and tree pruner. We purchased our home last September and we have a lot of old trees surrounding our property that could use a snip or two.

  38. Just discovered your blog. I’m way over here in the same town as Erin. Those lovely micro-snips would be very helpful in my garden! Such a lovely giveaway! Thanks for your generosity!

  39. Oh wow, what an amazing giveaway! I would use the pruners every day at work and at home on all my shrubs!

  40. Wow! What a giveaway!
    I’m pretty sure the pole cutter would become my best friend. With a tree lined driveway and house surrounded by them, I spend countless hours climbing up and sawing limbs. Just celebrated my birthday, and climbing is coming a little slower…haha!

  41. What a fantastic givewaway! Those micro-tip snips are just the ticket for my cutting garden. Thanks for the chance to win!

  42. All would be so beneficial for gardening. How would one decide? I do believe that the Fiskars Micro-Tip Pruning Snip would be most beneficial for me.

    Thank you!


  43. I think I would like the 18″ pruners. I have the longer set and I believe the shorter version would be easier on my wrists. I too love everything Fiskars. In the garden and in the sewing room!

  44. All the Fiskars hand tools sound great, but if I had to pick one it would be the pole saw and tree pruner. We recently bought a ne home and most of the trees need some limbing up.

  45. Hello, the Power Gear 2 Softgrip pruners look wonderful to me. Wish I had had those last week while pruning up the limbs on the birches in the front garden. Gardening is starting to feel a little uncomfortable as I am getting older and those pruners would definitely make a real difference for my hand comfort.

  46. What a great opportunity to make gardening easier! Last year I planted some hydrangea trees & had great difficulty reaching the blooms. I would really love, love, love the 35″ Power2Gear Loopers! Those would be my new fav so I can enjoy beautiful newly cut blooms this summer! They would also be perfect for my lilacs. Thx for the chance to win!

  47. Probably the PowerGear2 Pruners, I’ll definitely be needing to purchase some this year for my plants!

  48. Hi there pal! I do not own any tool like the micro tip snippers. And when it comes to pruning latex, I’ve gunked up my share of pruners and loppers pruning Trachelospermum jasminoides (confederate jasmine) in my yard. Thanks Dee! Best wishes.

  49. That long-handled pruner would add some muscle without going to the gym in order to climb in the tree.

  50. After using the 18″ loppers I do not use my other ones anymore. Pruning is so much easier now.

  51. 32′ loppers! Did you know that Fiskars is Finnish-based? My relatives in Finland always send me Fiskars. And I’m laughing so hard about the marijuana and the shadow on your hand! I’m so allergic to stabs and scratches in the garden that I easily bruise without gloves & do look like I have the grunge. XXOO

  52. I would LOVE to win these gardening tools! My favorite might be the micro-tip pruning snips! 🙂

  53. What a wonderful give away! I love the Fiskars pruner that I have, but the micro tip snippers would be wonderful. I really need a better tool for deadheading.

  54. What amazing tools! The pole saw would be great for the trees in my backyard, but I’d have to say that the pruners would probably be my favorite. I use them so much in my yard!

  55. I would love to win this package, I really need the expandable pole saw as I have many branches to trim.

  56. The Extendable Pole Saw and Pruner would be so helpful – we’ve borrowed one before and it was so useful!

  57. I love this brand! The Power Gear 2 Prunes would come in handy. I think I would get the most use out of them in my garden.

  58. Wow! Tough decision, but I think the loppers would be my favorite. We’ve got a lot of brambles that we are clearing and those would be awesome!

  59. We already have the geared loppers, which are wonderful! I think I would love the micro pruners!, thanks for all your wonderful information!

  60. Fiskars 7-16 Foot Chain-drive Extendable Pole Saw and Tree Pruner would be awesome to help me trim the tree limbs over my daylilies. Thanks Dee! ?

  61. I would love the Power Gear 2 pruners. Lots of rose bushes, shrubs and limbs to prune. I am now sharing the one pair I have with my husband who has taken an interest in the gardens. All the tools are great.

  62. I would use the microsnips or multisnips– inspired by your blog and by Theresa Loe’s podcast (and your guest appearance on said podcast!), I’m bulking up on fresh herbs, veggies and flowers for beneficial insects. My yard is going to look and smell SO good this year! 🙂

  63. This would be an awesome giveaway to win! I would use the loppers the most! My spring project is to clear away some invasive wild rose that took over an area in my yard and these would be a great help. Thanks so much! I will share on FB! 🙂

  64. I’m not eligible to win (Canadian) but I definitely need either of those bypass loppers. I’ve managed for years without because I was primarily a container grower, but now that I have an actual yard with actual trees and shrubs, these are becoming a must! Will look for them in stores.

  65. I would definitely want the Pruners. I own an old pair but sometimes end up grabbing a pair of scissors if I don’t feel like walking out to the garden shed to grab them when I see something that needs pruning. I’m afraid I’ll forget if I don’t do it right then! lol So naughty of me, I know.

  66. Fiskers are great. I would probably most love the extendable pole saw and pruner. We have 3 acres of mature trees and pruning never ends.

  67. I think I would love a new pair of pruners. I always like to keep a pair in my back pocket as I am working. Softgrip sounds easy on my hands. 🙂

  68. I would probably get the most use out of the extendable looper, I’m a short woman who loves her tall plants!

  69. extendable pruner, for those dead branches of the nearly-dead tree in the neighbor’s yard, which hang over the fence. Would so love to lop those off!

  70. I would really use the heck out of the 35″ loppers. I have several fiskars tools and use them all the time.

  71. I have a pair of the lopers and they are my favorite too so would love to have the chain driven pole saw. We’ve got many many trees and I’m always needing something just a ‘little longer’ so that tree trimmer would be wonderful to have.

  72. The One Chain Drive Extendable Pole Saw & Pruner (7’–16?) would certainly be my favorite fiskars tool because I’ve gotten to the age it’s impossible for me to climb up into the trees and handle a chain saw.

  73. We moved to our home almost 2 years ago and inherited a lot of garden to take care of. We could use any of the Fiskars products and would be thrilled and grateful! Thank you!

  74. I think I’d most enjoy the hose and sprinkler — currently I have to drag ours back and forth between front yard and back yard, and that’s a lot of work! I think my next most enjoyed would be the loppers, we have some but I can’t use them because my upperbody strength is quite lacking.

  75. I have several Fiskar products and love them all but I have not tried their pole pruner. I have a pole pruner, made by another company, but it jams up so bad I am afraid to use it. That is why I would like to try Fiskars, I am sure it is much better!

  76. The Soft grip micro tip snips would be an awesome addition to our aging garden tools!

  77. I actually already own several Fiskars products, and love them all. But I don’t have a pole pruner that is chain-driven. It just has a rope. And if I win I know a young married couple that could use all the tools that would be duplicates for me.

  78. The Fiskars Power Gear 2 Oeuner, the last one on your oost, looks like it would be my favorite, but the long- handLe bypass prune tgat you use for roses looks great too! Would love to win-my pruners are so chewed up the blades look like pinking shears! Lol How cool it would be to win these new ones.

  79. Oh! The loppers. Mine are in pretty bad shape and these would make my life so much easier. Thanks for the chance to win.

  80. Anyone winning the Pole saw, or any other of the Fiskars is indeed receiving a great gift. I will give that Pole saw a test drive now that I know Fiskars makes one.

  81. Loppers! Those look fabulous! We have an older wooden set that worked great until the Wonder Kids tried to cut down the dogwood with them after they got the Cozy Coupe stuck in the dogwood tree.

  82. Great post and great giveaway! Having recently moved to my very wooded lot, that one chain drive extendable pole saw & pruner would fast become a much-used favorite around here, taming (at least somewhat) those scrubby blackjack oaks I’m surrounded by!

  83. I would love to have a good pair of extendable pruners but every tool on the list would use.

  84. What a great giveaway! I’m just branching out into gardening so all would be useful, but the pole Saw & Tree Pruner would be the most beneficial for me. My backyard tree is rather weak and needs a good clean up if it is to stand a chance this tornado season.

  85. I would love to use the 18″ loppers. The neighbors hedge hangs over my vegetable garden and casts a huge shadow. I could print that sucker right back! ;0)

  86. The extendable polesaw & pruner would be great because sometimes I’d like to prune higher than this short woman can reach. I love Fiskars products!

  87. I would use the Extendable Pole Saw & Pruner because there is a broken tree limb tangled in another tree limb hanging over my drive way and there seems to be no good way to get to it w/o a cherry picker. lol Maybe this would work.

  88. Its a hard to pick a favorite, I think all of these would come in handy! But I would really like the Fiskars 7-16 Foot Chain-drive Extendable Pole Saw and Tree Pruner. I have some serious tree pruning to do this spring after the tough winter winds have broken a lot of branches. Love your blog and your live videos. I always learn something! I consider myself a intermediate beginner. I hope to be as experienced a gardener as my great grandmother someday. Even as a small child, I saw the talent she processed and the love she received from her beautiful flowers.

  89. Ooooooo . . . . A veritable gardener’s toy box!!! I love the snips, the pruners, and the loppers! I probably use (and am the hardest on) my pruners, though.

  90. The pole saw and pruner would be a huge help in my garden. But if I had all of these in my tool cabinet, I thing the one I would go back to time and again would be the Power gear pruners. Anything that reduces the strain on my hands is a favorite.

  91. I have the power gear pruners and the micro tips and love them both. Another set would make it possible for a friend to help me prune! I would love to try the loppers.

  92. Definitely the loppers. We have lots of mature trees and bushes….the branches are too big and too high for me to get comfortably.

  93. Power garden pruners! my old ones are fizzling and Heaven knows a gardener is lost without her garden pruners!

  94. The extendable pole saw would be my a dream. I’ve wanted one for SOOOO long. but I would use the tip snippers most often. i only have one good pair and they’re never where i need them to be.
    What a great giveaway. Thanks SO much!

  95. Well all of these would be fantastic I think I would use the One Garden Multi-Snip the most. I also always (always!) can use a good hose around the garden.

  96. All of these tools would definitely get a lot of use, but the Chain Drive Extendable Pole Saw & Pruner would probably be my favorite. I am greatly lacking in the stature department, so there are a lot of places needing trimming which I am unable to reach.

  97. It would have to be the pole saw….I have never used one, but I think I could get the hang of it.

  98. Pole saw and pruner. My yard needs this . But I can make use of all the tools. Thank you, Gina Wagner

  99. I would probably use the heck out of the loppers, I have a black lace sambucus that can get quite large in one summer and needs constant pruning and requires getting a ladder most of the time. Those micro-pruners are also a really wonderful addition to any toolbox.

  100. The pruners would be a big help…My current pair is terribly dull. I have a pair of the power gear loppers and they are amazing!

  101. The Extendable Pole Saw & Pruner will be much appreciated. I’m under tall & need all the extension I can get!

  102. I would love the loppers and the pruners. I use the 18 inch loppers, but I don’t have any of the others. The Power Gear loppers really do make a difference for ease of use if you have arthritis. I love them! I love your blog too; I always get helpful information although I garden in Northern California.

    1. How wonderful to have this whole array of garden helpers! Now retired and a full-time gardener, I rarely walk out the door without pulling a weed or two nipping at a bush or shrub! The Fiskars tools would certainly be helpful with my little obsession!

  103. I love the micro tip pruning snips. I have a pair and have worm them out over time. They are great for harvesting herb and make quick work of it! I haven’t tried any of the others but would love too! I know my husband and mother in law would love the pole saw since we have had so much ice damage to our trees.

  104. I love Fiskars. I have a pair of pruners I have had for over 10 years. I would be so blessed to win the PowerGear2 Loppers. They would come in very handy on our little farm.

  105. PowerGear2 Loppers look amazing! I think they would be my favorite because I would use them the most. I already own the micro tip pruning shears and I love them!!!

  106. I’d think at this time of year, I could make the best use of the chain drive extendable pole saw & pruner. My yard & gardens are surrounded by problematic sycamores and pines. I also harbor way too many over sized rose of sharons’ and red buds. Fingers crossed.

  107. I would LOVE to have the 18″ Loppers. I have a lot of unruly stuff along my fence line that could use trimming and those would be perfect. I also would love the extendable pole saw/pruner. My tree branches are often JUST out of reach and that tool would help a lot!

  108. My husband and I really have enjoyed the Fiskars products, that we have purchased. We use our power gear loppers extensively for trimming off fence rows on our farm. The pole saw would be a great help in trimming low hanging limbs.

  109. I’m a big fan of Fiskars. The tool I would probably use the most is the Power Gear Loppers. There is so much pruning and cutting back that needs to be done multiple times a year.

  110. The PowerGear 2 loppers would get a serious workout at my house. Would probably have to arm wrestle my hubby over who would get to use them first ?.

  111. I have always loved Fiskars tools and this is terrific selection of them. I think the PowerGear2 large (35″) loppers would be my favorite tool from this group; my garden is getting more and more mature and my shrubs are thicker than ever!

  112. I love my Fiskers tools. The Extender pole saw and pruner would get a work out in my yard. Thank you Dee and Fiskers.

  113. Oh wow! How does one choose? 🙂 Well, I think pole saw would come in very handy. Although, I do need a new hose and sprinkler. Hmmm…:)

  114. The power gear loppers for sure. My loppers are terrible and pruning is one of my favorite chores!

  115. hard to pick, as any of them would be useful here – but my hands and arms would especially love to get themselves around the loppers, pole saw or soft-grip pruners. thanks for the chance to win. –suz in ohio

  116. All of Fiskers tool’s are top-rated in my opinion. The micro -tip pruning snips are great for florists to use on cut flower designs and in the garden to snip fresh herbs and blooming flowers. Love them. I also love using my Power Gear 2 Soft Grip pruners for rose stems and woody ornamental foliage I prune for fresh floral designs. It is a big help to reduce strain on the tendons in my hand and wrist. I have not used the pole saw pruner but would love to try it out!
    Thank you Fiskers! Great garden and fresh floral tools for gardeners who love to play in the dirt!

  117. I think I’d burn up those micro tip snippers deadheading, harvesting garden goodies, and fine trimming! Love your real person reviews – saves me from making expensive buys that aren’t what I need.
