Hello fellow gardeners
Well I concede I need some better gardening gloves. I have thick clay soil with slightly more soil than flint content (although in places that's questionable). TBH, I prefer to get in there with my hands as it seems to get a better result, but they are in a poor way after today and meeting with a few sharp flints whilst trying to dig up a tree stump and the soil is getting pretty cold now too!
I digress I have quite long fingers, but my hands aren't fat. Generally speaking, ladies' gloves are too small because of my fingers and men's gloves are too loose. My middle finger is about 9cm and the palm (ignoring the thumb) is about 8cm. Has anyone found a pair of gloves (ideally that keep hands warm too) that fits this sort of dimensions? I have lots of roses and generally only wear gloves for digging and cutting things as when the stumps are finally gone, I shan't be digging up anymore trees in a hurry!
Thanks in advance
