Magic secateurs are obtained during the quest Fairytale I - Growing Pains from Malignius Mortifer, south of Falador. It is the only weapon in game that is capable of damaging Tanglefoot. If players lose their magic secateurs before defeating Tanglefoot, they must reacquire them by taking the required items back to the Nature Spirit; otherwise, after defeating Tanglefoot, additional pairs may be purchased from Malignus Mortifer for 40,000 coins each.
When equipped, the magic secateurs increase the crop yield of herbs, allotments, celastrus trees, grape vines, and hops by 10%, as well as yielding more herbs from Herbiboars. When held in the player's inventory, they function as normal secateurs without the crop yield bonus. Tool Leprechauns located at each Farming patch can store magic secateurs in the normal secateurs slot.
Players can also use a pair of magic secateurs to create the Otherworldly theme in the theme space of a Superior garden in a Player-owned house. Doing so removes the magic secateurs from your inventory and a new pair will need to be acquired again.
Magic secateurs do not count as a weapon when travelling to Entrana, as there is a hops patch on the island. Additionally, because of the stab and slash bonuses, they can be an alternative to the Dramen staff on the island when using melee.
Just like normal secateurs, magic secateurs can be used to cure the disease of trees by using the secateurs with the tree.
In addition to being used to cure trees from disease, they can be used to obtain willow branches from farmed willow trees. Up to 6 willow branches can be cut at a time, after which the branches regrow one at a time at regular intervals of approximately 5 minutes.
