How to Find Your Perfect Gardening Glove
Thursday, 25 April 2019
Buying gardening gloves isn't as simple as some people think, as different risks pose different challenges for your hands. Thorns demand puncture resistance, sharp twigs demand tear resistance, and extreme weather means that thermal and thick gloves might prove the best option. Understanding what risks lie ahead is the key to safe and enjoyable gardening, which is why we've created this explanatory guide.
Here at SafetyGloves.co.uk we have hundreds of gardening gloves sourced from some of the world's best glove manufacturers. Provided in all shapes and sizes, it can be difficult to know exactly where you stand, so we've decided to help you find the gloves that you are looking for. If you want some gloves for pruning roses, or gloves for trimming your hedge, read on.
How to Choose the Gardening Gloves for You?
Choosing the right glove depends entirely on what you want from your gloves. To help narrow this down we've split this down into easy to read sections, so if you know what your after see the image that suits you and click. The sections include: thorns and sharp shrubbery protection, general gardening use, glove style and finally more specific heavy duty tasks.
Gardening Gloves for Thorns and Sharp Shrubbery Protection
If you want to protect your hands against thorns and other sharp material, then we would recommend you opt for a glove that has a high level of puncture and cut resistance. This ensures that you can handle things like brambles and prune roses without your hands becoming damaged. Two gloves that we would recommend are the Briers Professional Cut Resistant Gloves 5209, and the more expensive and heavy duty HexArmor ThornArmor 3092 Gardening and Landscaping Gloves.
Both of these gloves are well suited to handling sharp things such as thorns, however the more resilient HexArmor Gloves are the ones best suited to tough all day use. To browse our full categories for thorn and sharp shrubbery protection, you can click the below links.
Gardening Gloves for General use
If you just want to get out in the garden and get to work, then these are the gloves for you. Dexterous, protective, and grippy, these gloves are perfect for pulling up weeds and planting bulbs. One of our most popular general gardening gloves is the Supertouch Handler Gloves 6203/6204.
Lightweight, dexterous and mechanically strong, these gloves are perfect for pulling at tough roots and keeping your hands clean and cool. To browse our selection of general gardening gloves, weeding gloves and planting gloves, see the below categories.
Gardening Gloves by Style

Gardening Gloves for Heavy Duty Tasks
Gardening isn't just planting small quaint flowers and pulling up weeds. Sometimes it can demand tough gloves that offer more protection against extremely sharp thorns and protection against the machinery that you are using. Filled with heavy duty rigger gloves such as the Portwest Canadian Leather Rigger Gloves A210 and leather goatskin gloves such as the Cutter CW900 Goatskin Leather Unisex Premium Garden Work Gloves, these are the gloves that protect against chainsaws, strimmers and more.
Thicker gloves are ideal for those who expect to partake in tougher and more strenuous tasks. To find our full range of heavy duty gloves for those heavy duty tasks you can click the links below.
