Dave it's a large cheap price clothes outlet just google it to find your nearest store.
discodave can u post a photo of u gardening in a thong?? haha not good for nettles/brambles!!!
Steel toecap wellies, jodpurs, t-shirt (fleece if it's cold), and a bandana to keep the hair out of my eyes. Somehow it always seems to escape the scrunchie when it's in pony tail. Always, always gloves, do NOT like creepy crawlies. Recently bought some knee pads, will see how I get on with them when the weather warms up. Also use the pockets on the fleece for all the bits I tend to walk around with, secateurs, string, twisty ties (also good for when the scrunchie blows away), folding pruning saw, weeding knife. Probably why I wear gloves, otherwise I'd lose a finger every time I put my hands in my pockets!
Gloves? What are they???? Hate it when I can't feel what I'm touching in the garden..that sounds quite rude doesn't it? Discodave- have you tried one of the Borat ones? Maybe I could send you a kilt Those brambles are a b&*$*!
For cheap fleeces, try Makro (you must know someone who has a card, or maybe get your work to sign up), very cheap, but very thick and warm. You could even try the regatta outlet on ebay, their fleeces are a lot thinner, so you can layer up. If you've a JTF nearby they always have fleeces in for less than a tenner.
o god fg how do ur nails manage. i still have nails and cant bear mud underneath them. i am just picturing discodave in a mankini!! hope he has no overlooking neighbours!!
Jeans sometimes with thermals underneath boots generally, wellys when i'm going in the muddy bits. Usually a hat or a hoody top to keep my head warm in the cold and not burnt in the heat. layers are good sometimes waterproof trousers and jacket (ex nato) good for wind and rain, gloves mainly for thorny jobs only.
Knee pads; can't live without them! Just bought a new pair from B&Q, the brand is JCB (not kidding) they were about £10 and they are the most comfortable ones I've ever had (and I've been wearing knee pads for work for the last 35/40 years) I have skinny legs and knee pads are not really designed for skinny female legs, but these work!
Just spent 4 hours in the garden with a wooly hat pulled down over my ears, bliss
Here you go EvergreenQueen, its a bit like this
My neighbours love it when I garden..
mountain equipment fleece, craghopper kiwi bottoms waterproofs and serious gloves!! thermal all the way at this time of year in the highlands!!!!
DiscoDave, left a bit, left a bit.....perfect!
haha dicodave dinna think so!! if that man was anywhere near my garden he would be full of ticks and midge bites!!
lol, couple of years ago my neighbour asked me if I'd got a new gardener, she'd spent 2 hours at her upstairs window watching him mow the lawn with his shirt off in a pair of shorts. She had even said to her husband that she needed some help in her garden and that she was going to ask me for his contact details. You should have seen her face when I introduced her to him, it was my OH..
I nearly choked on my tea! Dave- that's the best laugh I've had in ages! Is the 'neckerchief' a particular horticultural brand? And I don't think that fork has ever been anywhere near a hardy perennial....Actually I'm beginning to wonder if all the women on this thread are 'frustrated' if you get my drift!!! EQueen- I don't much care about my nails as they've had a lifetime of horses, gardens and diy so I gave up on them a long time ago!
aahh thats a shame a women needs a wee bit o nail. hope im not frustrated F.G how would i know????
and discodave do u have that guys number handy???
