Re: What kinds of gardening gloves do you use?

I always wear leather gloves. Deerskin are nice, too.

The roses usually grab my arms, though. I'd need a leather space suit. {#emotions_dlg.laugh}

The only thing I worry about is dirt under my fingernails, so I just wear the thin one use medical gloves. I'm a complete wuss.

Check out Mud Gloves. They have a variety of styles and will have just what you need for not being pricked by bushes and shrubs when pruning. As a gardener I have several gloves I use for different tasks, and they are all Mud Gloves.

WALMART has some great gloves. They are latex coated and protect your hands from thorny barberry bushes. The ones I purchased last year were manufactured by MIDWEST and are identified as GRIPPING.

They are very inexpensive and I found them hidden way back in the gardening center with the fertilizer and plants, not with the expensive ones out front.

I use Mud gloves for planting annuals when I have those 4 or 6 pack seedlings. They are great because they are close to your hands or fingers to push the seedlings into the soil (not oversized at all).

Re: What kinds of gardening gloves do you use?

Thank you all for the great suggestions. I finally decided to go with Mud Gloves from Amazon, because I read a review in which the person used them to trim barberry bushes and that is exactly how I will use them.
