    A good, sharp pair of scissors.... spring loaded if possible

    It takes 2 off us about 10 days to drop my room bro bro working 8 to 10 hour shifts absolute pain in the balls and requires ether holidays or a sick note for work lol I’ve had a machine that cost about 400 quid but it kept over heating there are some crazy priced machines that seem to be much better now but for me it’s a few pairs of brand new scissors every 3 months or so it’s the only part of growing that causes me to want to stop lol never has though

    Up the irons

    Been hating last part of growing ever since started growing 8 years ago, but lately its not such a disaster thanks to mashine called Bonsai Hero. Check it out its electric scissors that saves you like 50% time. Love that thing recommend to everyone it's about 550e but worth every penny. Let me know if someone has one and what you think..

    spring loaded scissors is generally the standard method but if your bringing down more than a couple ive had a friend link me a decent machine looked like a table with a fan built in the top and you just ran your branch over whilst rotating ya bud seemed to work a treat caught all the sugar leaf too in a bucket for some nice shake
