Planting and pruning small, fragile items can be difficult. I cannot count the times I’ve cleared all the foliage from a string of pearls (Senecio rowleyanus, Zones 9–12) just by trying to plant it—that is, until I discovered this pair of long-handled, stainless-steel tweezers sold by LGEGE. These tweezers are the perfect tool for planting in tight spaces and for pruning pokey cacti and succulents. They are sold as a set, with a straight-tipped and a curve-tipped version, both of which are about 10½ inches long. If you’re considering doing anything delicate in the garden, you must add these tweezers to your tool collection.
