Hello and welcome to our official website!
For many of us, the time in life has come when our “Aging Parts” don’t work as well as they once did!
Hi I’m Paul Grimm and I want to tell you something that has helped me and I hope will help you too!

I recently became a “Senior Citizen” by Canada’s definition. Along with this has been less mobility in my joints and muscles.
I have spent most of my life working in the farming industry and for the past 28 years in the nursery production business. Working in both nursery and orchard production, many hours have been spent in the fields and nursery pruning trees, shrubs and other plants.
But over the past few years I have experienced increased trouble with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and the development and increase of Arthritis in my hands.
For years I have used and loved my Felco pruners which are extremely well made, durable and in fact, I still have the same pair I bought about 30 years ago! But as physical limitations developed, these have become more and more difficult for me to use.
So…we began to search the world for a pruner that would work better with my weakened hands.
And the more we thought about this, the more it occurred to us that there are many people in our position who still love to work with plants and gardening but no longer have the strength in their hands and other body parts that they once did.
Our search proved fruitful and we found a manufacturer in Asia who would produce a line of pruners for us that would fulfill this need. We have decided to have these manufactured and make them available to you.
Introducing: (Drum Roll Please!!!)
“The Gardeners Friend”
The Gardener’s Friend is the brand name we have chosen for our line of products. Plans are to provide many great tools for gardeners who have some restriction in mobility but still want to actively garden.
At the moment our “Line” is one product only. “The Gardener’s Friend 3-stage Ratchet Pruner” but our intentions are to continue adding great products until we have an extensive line of “The Gardeners Friends” tools and gardening aids.
We may also along the way, add products for folks with no restricted mobility as we are constantly searching for high quality products to offer you.
Let me assure you that I am a real person and have really done what I have told you.
My story is true!
And so is my desire to help you continue in the hobby you love for many years to come.
Click Here and you will be taken directly to our listing on Amazon.com where you can purchase your Gardeners Friend Pruners. We have chosen Amazon fulfillment for a couple of reasons.
First, they provide excellent fast service. Secondly, they offer fast FREE SHIPPING for orders of over $35.00 and this is simply amazing if you have paid shipping and handling costs for any online purchases lately. (Try buying something on EBay and see what the charges are!). And finally, at our stage in life we want you to have the availability of these wonderful tools but do not want to have direct involvement with the order processing, shipping and handling.
And frankly…Amazon does it better than we ever could!
Check back here often and enjoy as we add additional great products to “The Gardeners Friends” line.
