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.
