Where to buy Felco Pruners?

I had a pair of Felco pruners (the original - #2) but lost them last fall. I need to replace them but I'm wondering if there is really a big difference between #2 and #5. I'm not a professional, gardening is just a hobby.

Any thoughts?

I have used Felco 2 for over 25 yrs and wouldn't have another style. I have more than once pruned a whole orchard of fruit trees with nothing more than these hand pruners. I haven't had to replaced or sharpen the blade in 3 yrs. The #2 will last forever!

Get Your Garden Growing with These Top Tool Picks

Father’s Day is right around the corner — June 21 if you didn’t know! — so if you are in a dither over choosing a gift for a gardening dad in your life, fret no more! Of course a gift certificate will always be welcome but there are more possibilities for a garden-related gift than I can possibly mention. Here are a few ideas to consider. Find them at most garden centers.

• Most dads love tools, especially good quality tools. (I once heard a gentleman customer in the tool department of a local garden center say enthusiastically to the employee helping him, “Ah! The toy department!”) If his hand pruners, saws or long-handled loppers are worn, he’ll be very glad to be given new Felcos, Coronas or another good quality brand. A favorite for anyone with trees or large shrubs to prune is a pole pruner. The new ones are lightweight, extremely strong and some have telescoping poles to extend the reach. One of my all-time favorite and most useful tools is a mini-pole pruner, sometimes called an extended-reach pruner. They make it possible to trim up-high twigs or spent flowers without climbing on a ladder.
