The PowerGear mechanism is described as "an evolution of engineering and ergonomics that aims to make pruning and lopping easier than ever" and "creates 3x the power in every cut".
The product has PFTE coated blades and 3D soft grip orange handles. The new range will be previewed at Glee (12-14 September) for sale in January 2017. Brand ambassador James Wong will be on the stand for the first day of the show.
Wong has also been recording a new BBC Radio 4 documentary "on British horticulture's nostalgia fixation", unterviewing amazing UK designers and art historians" on "Why is a 'good' garden for so many people one that was created 100+ years ago?"
He has also been working on a cook book featuring items such as hot chocolate with enhanced polyphenol content.
Wong has been filming on a French beach to explain the role of salt in human biochemistry, in Bulgaria to talk about the effects of UV light and in Peru on Andean crops for a project on science and food.
