April to October - t-shirt and shorts, walking boots. November to March - body warmer with lots of pockets, old jeans and sweat shirt. Vary rarely a cap.
I also wear any old clothes that are not fit to be seen out. OLd jeans, tracksuits. The son's old fleece jacket. On the feet wellies, walking boots or old trainers, depending on the weather! Mind you I do find visitors will always knock on the door when Im in my scruff!!!
I wear my green army looking parka, it is great against winds creeping up on you. I wear gardening gloves that keep my hands warm and toasty, And Timberland boots in the winter. Of course I layer if it is really cold out side, sweatpants on top of sweatpants,teeshirts sweatshirts and a hoody..Of course my ever cool looking sunglasses I think I am ready to rock-n-roll...
Can anyone tell me please where Monty Don buys the clothing mentioned? He always manages to look the part even though up to his knees in mud. I am particularly interested in his canvas shoulder bag as it would be just the job for my bulging pocketed husband on trips out.
Monty Don's shirt - tunic style pull over. Fantastic. Where on earth can I get them?


I wear wooden soled clog boots with irons and hobnails on the soles and heels perfect with a thermal boiler suit in the cold weather or donkey jacket and jeans anyone else wear clogs?
I have a pair of leather and suede gauntlets from a Shropshire tannery which go as far as the elbow and are perfect for tackling the pruning of thorny or spiky subjects, even pampas!

I undergo fingerless fabric gloves are rightful the job in winter and same Outlaw, a swell mat schoolwide edge hat does the job too - quite natty I guess! I reckon Sarah Forage looks a million dollars in her outfits, she can develop and arrange my flowers any example! Fashion Girl
I'm afraid my winter gardening clothes are track suits that are no longer suitable for in the house (no holes though) with t shirts and jumpers in a similar state. Basically I like to go for lots of layers to keep me warm. My gardening shoes came from a DIY shop in France last summer - they are rubber soled (good on muddy soil) with a waterproof upper and they are VERY comfortable so I plan to buy more when I go back next summer. Summer gardening clothes are quite different, I like to wear smartish, loose fitting shorts with short sleeved or sleeveless t shirts so I can get a bit of sun whilst I am working and, of course, I wear sun cream when the sun is shining.
I wear GardenGirl dungarees which are so comfortable and look great, they are designed especially for women. I purchased these from a website called GeoWear which specialises in garden clothing.

where does monty don get those half placket fronted shirts from ? does anyone know.


Try - Darcy Clothing, Old Town and Hoggs of Fife

My dear old Dad (sadly long since departed) always wore a really old tweed

jacket for gardening.  My mother hated him wearing it so much (she worried

about the neighbours seeing it) one day she put it in the dustbin and thought she

had seen the last of it.  Two days later, looking out of the window to where Dad

was weeding the front garden, she realized with despair that Dad had dug his

jacket out of the dustbin and was wearing it!!!

Pyjamas and slippers

Monty has jackets and trousers from OLD TOWN CLOTHING but shirts from somewhere else. A mystery.
