Season after season: a year of Corona's high-quality garden tools from the USA


Shown in its entirety for the first time at Glee last year, the selection of Corona tools available in the UK through Burgon & Ball is now a popular choice for horticultural professionals as well as keen gardeners. The Corona tools are engineered for lasting performance, offering unique and exciting opportunities to retailers.


Corona Tools is America’s leading tool innovator and for decades the name has been a by-word for quality. Holding great appeal for consumers looking for authentic brands with real heritage, the company’s origins lie in the orange groves near the southern Californian city of Corona. In 1928, the manufacturer developed a small shear for harvesting oranges revolutionised the citrus industry, and Corona recently celebrated 90 years of growth, innovation, and engineering expertise. 


Since its inception, Corona has excelled at combining the best of American engineering with a can-do approach to solving real gardening problems. Gardeners rely on Corona cutting tools, hand tools and long-handled tools for their long-lasting durability and performance. These trusted tools combine superb engineering with the highest quality materials and advanced technical design, to ensure that Corona tools are more than up to the job, however tough it gets. 


From the extensive Corona ranges, Burgon & Ball has curated a core range of exceptional tools specially selected for UK gardeners, bringing new choices to the British market. The collection offers a wide choice of high quality cutting tools, saws, axes, digging tools and long-handled tools, all of which incorporate advanced technical features to create the perfect tool for every task - and for every gardener. 


Ranges include the MAX Forged family of professional-grade tools built for strength and durability, offering the lasting sharpness and reliability which hardworking landscape professionals depend on, season after season. Another notable range is the ComfortGEL family of feature-rich tools with soft-grip handles for the keen domestic gardener, designed to make gardening easier and more enjoyable. 



Patented design features add to the appeal of Corona tools. DualLink, a feature of some of the MAX Forged range, is an advanced dual compound lever system, minimising cutting effort to make easy, powerful cuts. DualCut, available on products across both the MAX Forged and the ComfortGEL ranges, features a uniquely shaped cutting block (anvil), giving the user a choice of two cutting zones, to make either powerful or fast precise cuts.


It’s this strong combination of innovative design and exceptional engineering which creates garden tools unlike any other range on sale in the UK. These are high value, premium ranges, offering retailer an excellent return on space. 


To give an example, stand-out lines include the patented Corona FlexDIAL Branch & Stem Pruner with adjustable dial for a custom fit (RRP £34.99). A DIY Week ‘Garden Tool Product of the Year’ finalist, the handle opening can be set for different grips for different garden jobs, or for use by several gardeners.


The Corona MAX Forged Convertible Branch & Stem Pruner (RRP £44.99) is another eye-catching design. A heavy-duty forged steel bypass pruner, the handles easily fold out to create a two-handed mini lopper, perfect for when a little extra cutting power is required.


In addition to a back wall stand, a variety of flexible freestanding and castor-mounted display options are available, allowing the range to be positioned in areas of high footfall.


Corona tools are now available in the UK through Burgon & Ball, now also a part of the Venanpri global family of the finest hand tool brands, already home to Corona Tools. For further information, including a catalogue showing the complete range of tools, visit
