A new addition to the Fiskars range is MyFirstFiskars, which includes four stick tools, one watering can, four innovative hand tools and a box for storing all the items with a lid that transforms into a snow sledge. The company said it can be sold in garden centres' garden tools sections or among gift items.

Quantum is Fiskars new flagship range. Positioned at the top of the market, it is aimed at the "ProSumer" — knowledgeable gardeners who make up about 20 per cent of the market. The range includes one pruner, four loppers and one hedge shear.

The handles are made from aluminium alloy, the grip is made of cork and the blade is adjustable. The shape of the handle is designed for different grips used in different types of cutting and the shape of the pivot area is new. The pruners have a cutting capacity of up to 26mm.

Fiskars has also announced two new cutting -collections that include SmartFit secateurs with ergonomic features.
