It’s been a bumper few months for us here at Darlac. We’ve featured in not one, but two editions of BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine as part of the ‘On Test’ section. Our wonderful tools have been truly put to the test by gardening experts and we’ve pleased to say we passed with flying colours!
In the September issue, our garden shears were put to the test. We all know how helpful a reliable pair of shears can be, especially at this time of year. Shears can help you to get jobs done quickly and help you to care for your shrubs, hedges and lawn.
Two of our shears were featured in the magazine; the Darlac Lawn Edging Shears and the Darlac Lightweight Shears. Our Lawn Edging Shears scored top marks with 5/5, and our Lightweight Shears scored a very impressive 4.75/5.
We had a fantastic write up for the Lightweight Shears:
“These shears gave an excellent cut, slicing cleanly through the branches of every hedge on the test. They’re remarkably light; at just 820g, they weigh less than a bag of sugar. This weight makes them very nimble for precise trimming, but also a joy to use when cutting large hedges and shrubs. They’re made even more comfortable by their effective shock absorbers. They come with a lifetime warranty.”
The Darlac Lawn Edging Shears also received a brilliant review and was the award winner for the shears category.
Here’s what they said:
“A BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine Best Buy award winner, these lawn edging shears are extremely lightweight. They have adjustable handles, which adjust from 66cm to 108cm, so you can use them with a straight back whatever your height and soft grips make them comfortable to handle too. These edging shears feature strong, wavy-edged blades that cut well, and, at 29cm in length, are quick and efficient to get the job done. They also come with a lifetime warranty.”.
Our magazine features didn’t end there! We were very happy to see the Darlac Bulb Planter also get the spotlight in the testing section of the October edition of Gardeners’ World Magazine.
Darlac Bulb Planters
We like to make light work of your garden to-do list, creating garden tools to make your life easier. The Darlac Bulb Planter is no exception, and what’s more, our bulb planters have been put to the test with rave comments. With it being bulb planting time in the garden right now, the timing couldn’t be more perfect!
Other comments included, “kind on the back” and “simple and easy to use”. Lot of pros were also listed as part of the test and both products received four stars for value for money. It’s wonderful to be recognised for the quality products we create, and we love nothing more than being ‘put to test’ because we know we’ll stack up!
This isn’t the first time we’ve had our products reviewed, and it isn’t the first time we’ve been awarded a Best Buy recognition. You can read more about our award-winning products in our Amateur Gardening Magazine best buy review blog post.
