My favorite garden gloves are the best! I have used so many different types of gardening gloves over the years, and finally — finally!! — have found my favorite ones! Here’s why I love them so much.
Even when I was a little girl, gardening with my Mom and Dad, I remember wearing gardening gloves.
Back then, my only requirement for garden gloves was that I had a pair. You know: to imitate my Mom and Dad doing their gardening chores as I “helped” them! (Some of my fondest memories!)
Fast forward to today and I use gardening gloves for many reasons!
My favorite garden gloves get used a lot.
Just look at this picture . . .
These particular gloves I tried on a whim, as I had been trying gloves out for years and years without success.
I felt like Goldilocks and the Three Gardening Gloves: one pair was too small, another way too big, while other pairs were more pretty than user-friendly.
You get the idea.
Nitrile Gardening Gloves
So I ordered nitrile gardening gloves last year on Amazon — I’ll be sharing an Amazon Affiliate link below to order them — and reordered another package last month…just to make sure I never run out of these! Ever!
I found four pairs of gloves for less than $20 – a great deal because these garden gloves really work!
The material on the back of the gloves and around the wrist area is breathable nylon.
The palms and finger tips are nitrile-coated, which makes them grip things well — such as tools or weeds.
I can pull the tiniest weeds while wearing these gloves, which is something I could never do with any other garden gloves I’ve tried up until this point.
I even use them when deadheading my Knockout Roses, although I do occasionally still feel a thorn if I’m not careful.
Although I’ve never done so, these gloves are supposedly machine washable. Nice to know!
They fit like a glove. (I just crack myself up sometimes.)
Seriously — these nitrile gardening gloves feel like I’m not wearing any gloves at all so I can do every single thing I need to do in the garden such as:
- potting up flowers
- gently pulling apart roots when planting shrubs and perennials
- deadheading my Day Lilies or Knockout Roses
- gripping my hand pruners or other tools
- pruning ornamental grasses (great grip on grass bunches to make pruning quick)
Although I don’t worry about these things, these garden gloves can protect your manicure too.
Grab some for yourself!
Companies are getting smart and making pretty gardening gloves with nitrile coating too, like these Amazon’s Choice ones:
I think I’ll be buying those next time I need to refresh my stash!
