    Evening all (or is it morning?)

    I’m after a new pair of garden gloves for general gardening jobs and some light maintenance work.

    Any suggestions?

    TIA

    I swear by the Town and Country Professional Master Gardener gloves. You can pick them up for around £8 in most garden centres. They are waterproof, rose proof, and last forever (well, a long time!

    Hey Basketcase,

    I usually go into a garden centre and buy a couple of pairs of their cheapest gloves! I’m always losing the odd one!

    Have to admit that I usually just buy whatever looks like the best deal! I’m a sucker for a 2-4-1 offer.

    Have to admit I love the Gold Leaf gloves – they are endorsed by the RHS 🙂

    Ooo yes, I love the Gold Leaf gloves! I saw them at Chelsea Flower Show a few years ago and haven’t looked back since.

    Have a look at their website http://www.goldleaf-gloves.com

    Evening Basketcase,

    I prefer the latex-coasted gloves as they mean I can garden regardless of the wet weather. (they are also prety cheap!)

    I agree with GF – the Master Gardener gloves are great gloves and a steal. Great for roses and keep your hands dry while watering too.

    I’d recommend them every day of the week.

    Hi Basketcase,

    I know you said gloves … but have you thought about a barrier cream for your hands? There are several great ones available – I use them all of the time 🙂

    Spot on there GG. I use a barrier cream when I am tinkering with mowers/cars/bikes. Means that I can really feel what I am doing and the grip is fine. Also, when you wash it off you are left with lovely soft hands!

    Some good ideas here, thanks. I know quite a few people who use the Master Gardener gloves. When I went to Chelsea Flower Show I saw the Gold Leaf gloves, but the stand was just too busy to get close enough – maybe that is an advert in itself! Hadn’t thought about Barrier Cream – I’ll investigate further.

    Thanks everyone 🙂
