Clever Gardening Technique

Double Gloves for Winter Work
Warm hands and nimble fingers are important when pruning and doing garden work in winter. A good glove combination for warmth, dexterity and hand protection is double-layered -- half-finger, padded work gloves over flexible garden gloves. Half-finger, washable work gloves are just right to pull on over nitrile garden gloves. Half-finger gloves are often sold in hardware stores for heavy work such as factory-packing, box-cutting, and landscaping.
