“ Brand: B&Q / Type: Garden Gloves „
I was In B&Q the other day and spotted these gardening gloves for women. We already had some gardening gloves at home but they were mens size and although I use them a lot they do not fit me properly and the fingers are so big in them that it was hard to pick up things that were small, so I decided to give these gloves a try.
The price of the gloves is £3.98 and they say on them that the finger tips are made from tough nitrile. This feels a bit like rubber so I wondered how they would feel on my hands. I have medium sized hands although my fingers are quite chubby but these gloves fitted on ok and did not feel tight or anything. They felt quite comfortable really and I could move my hands and finger about ok in them.
I tried them out in the garden and found they were brilliant for things like doing the pots and tubs and pulling out a few weeds from the flower beds. They kept my hands clean and saved me getting black dirt under my finger nails like I usually do when I am planting things. The gloves were comfortable to use and I could use my fingers to dig a hole in the soil without having to worry about getting it all over me.
These gloves are fine for this kind of gardening but they are no good for heavier things like pruning the rose bushes or anything like that as the prickles go right through the gloves. I will have to keep a look out next time I got there for another pair of more heavy duty gloves to use for this kind of work but for general tidying up and pottering about these weeding gloves are brilliant.
