    I got mine from Aqua Essentials - only a small pair but they do the job! They were about six pounds.

    They would work! Generally, the scissors that we get have a small "mouth" and this makes shaping stems harder, the wider the mouth the better, for some applications.

    TGM sell the best scissors i've seen but these of corse come at a premium!

    I bought a pair of 7 inch curved scissors on ebay for a few pounds- they are lovely to use :D would have preferred a 12" pair but they do the job. Nice and sharp :p

    Ebay
