all I want to know is, what are the thinsulate gloves that Rachel wears with the strap I cant find them anywhere, I wear the briers thinsulae but the strap on them is pointless, Im a commercial and recreational gardener so they would serve a very good purpose!

When I first started work as gardener you were not supposed to wear gloves when weeding as you could not pick the weeds up properly. However that all faded out with the arrival of female horticultural students who claimed exemption to many of these rules.

I think you should wear gloves when needed, I use the green Master Gardener type which were thorn proof but their quality has slipped in recent years. These can be washed which is important to stop the skin round your fingers drying and cracking which often happens when handling turf and composts.
