My favourite gardening gloves are those "builders' gloves" that have a rubber palm and a cotton back. I bought a big multi-pack from eBay last year and it's nice to have a stock of them ready for when they wear out (which they don't do readily).

And this weather I also wear (if I go out at all) an old, padded waxed jacket, cord trousers, and an old pair of walking boots, which are much warmer than wellies. I am, by the way, a female magpie, which isn't obvious from my picture, or indeed from my garden clothing, as it's all a bit shapeless and unisex.

dont ur dogs poo when u walk them GG? then u pick it up. too much to do in the garden save dodging dog poo..x

Yes, EQ, they do - and I pick it up. I pick poo up with loo paper when they deposit it in the garden and flush it down the loo. But - for such small dogs - they poo an awful lot and sometimes I miss some. Picking it up once with my bare hands was enough to convince me to wear gloves in the future.

I normally just garden in what ever, last weekend i was in chinos and new look jumper. I have been told off by the OH for roughing up my nice clothes so I am designing my own gardening clothes with my own logo on it. Sounds strange I know but hopefully when you're walking around the GC in it, people will think I'm a professional.

I usually wear jogging trousers, sooo comfortable and old jumpers that are wearing out so finishing the clothes off in the garden.  I have those shoe wellies on my feet and garden gloves from a supermarket that only cost 99p so when they wear out I dont break the bank replacing them.  I find I do wear clothes out quickly in the garden especially on the knees.  I also wear a baseball cap, sometimes pinch my OH ones that are wearing out.  I am sure my neighbours think I am batty but I dont care!

  You  are making me wonder what sort of a doctor you are! hope that when you wear that white coat, it isn't the same sort of bluff!

I'm not that sort of doctor

My clothes have 3 lives; (1)New & smart (2)Getting a bit "worn" looking so wear about the house or nipping to the shops, or under a big jumper if won't be seen (3)Gardening/decorating.

Occasionally I wear something decent if it's just a quick job to be done, but normally it's perm any combination from; jeans, shorts, T shirt, sweatshirt, bodywarmer, scarf, hat with dangling earflaps, thick or thin fleece or old waterproof coat.  I too, am a baglady.   Gloves can be v. thin vinyl if doing something wet, or other cheapies, & thicker for thorns if required. I often just wear 1 glove.  Kneepads are a must, unfortunately the velcro is wearing out on my Marksman "for carpet layers" ones & can't find identical replacements.

OH & I got Dickies boilersuits - good for keeping the back warm, but not for undressing when I go to the loo.......

I can't "do" a Discodave as our back garden overlooks a golf course - don't want to put them off their stroke!!

I wear a sun hat in summer, though hats don't suit me unless they are very large and weddingy. OH saw me in my sunhat and commented, 'All you need are some wellies and a bucket of eggs.' I wear it with ancient shorts and a capacious t-shirt.

I always wear a baseball hat, it keeps the sun out of my eyes - roll on summer, I can't wait to get out into the garden and get some work done.  My old gardening clothes are waiting in a pile for me and my wellies.

31/03/2013 at 19:40

Me too sterelitza - baseball hat is a must.  Keeps the sun out of my eyes and off my head.  Also means I can stay out when it starts raining - as long as my face isn't getting wet I don't mind the rain.

Apart from that I am like Jeannie - all my clothes get cycled through new/ok for home/gardening.  The sad thing is that I now have many more gardening clothes than I do the wearable in public kind.
