I sent them a pair of secateurs that had completely rusted shut. No acknowledgement, no nothing.. and I sent a cheque for 19 quid to pay for the service - had read about this deal, but was a bit hmm

The secateurs came back this morning, in perfect condition, sharp as razors. WELL worth it since new Felcos cost a huge amount. Worth it for me because I have SO many roses. This is one business which is providing fabulous service...!

Really? Because i think I've lost my Felcos in the compost heap, and I'm hoping they're going to be uncovered when we empty it at the weekend.

I keep meaning to send mine off - they would benefit from some TLC.

Do they really do that? <thrilled> That's made my week! I've been meaning to clean and sharpen mine for about five years

I've just bought a sharpening file for mine, but really I want to send them off in case I botch the job to have it done by experts.

Where do you send them to? I looked on the Felco website but couldn't see anything.

It's on the front page of the website

blush Now why didn't I see that when I looked earlier? <Muppet>

Have to say, that advert that pops up is the best advert for secateurs I've ever seen.

Actually, come to think of it, I think it's the only advert for secateurs I've ever seen.

I want a holster for my Felcos, so I can stride round the garden like Annie Oakley.

Have two pairs of Felco - one of them is over 20 years old.
Some day soon they might need servicing but not yet.

I'm sending mine off pronto. I've worked with mine professionally for ten years, they could do with a trip to the secateur spa. One of the red handle covers even managed to fall off recently.

I think Felco used to do this service for free, maybe I'm just imagining it.
