Gardening gloves endorsed by England’s Royal Horticultural Society are now available from Gardener’s Supply Co. They’re made of high-quality leather that conforms snugly to the hands and are touted as being well-made, soft and comfortable. Gardener’s Supply offers all four Gold Leaf glove styles: Dry Touch, made of a water-resistant leather; Tough Touch, designed to remain comfortable while protecting the hands from thorns; Soft Touch, multipurpose gloves that allow for maximum dexterity; and Winter Touch, which are insulated and waterproof yet breathable, so hands stay warm and dry in wet, cold weather.
Prices range from $38.95 to $49.95. Shipping is extra. The gloves can be ordered at www.gardeners.com, or call 800-955-3370 to request a catalog.
