Is there any gardening items you love? Can't live without? Please share with us.
My list includes Deer repellents (a must have here) like Plantskydd and Liquid Fence

Lush brand abrasive soap called Rub, Rub, Rub. It has a sea salt in it that works well (and smells divine) to get the dirt out of my hands after a long day gardening, works well for people that garden in sandals like I do, buffs those feet clean too Smiling

Waleda Hand Cream called Skin Food for any dryness on my hands (I use this all year for my hands that are always dry from the endless alcohol rubs and hand washing my hands endure from my profession too.

EON plant markers are my favorite way to mark plants.

Add your favorites!

I was never able to tolerate gardening with gloves till I discovered the Atlas Nitrile 370's.
I don't even know I have them on. I have purchased them both on eBay and direct from this company, which frequently offers Free Shipping.

Plantskydd is a must have...we have moose (largest member of the deer family at 1200-1600+ lbs)

I also love my 5-gallon bucket with the caddy that goes over it. I have an assortment of implements in all the outside pockets, along with my trowels, etc. inside. Mine is bright pink and the caddy is bright green. Bright enough so I can easily spot where I last left it in the yard.

I buy clear vinyl gloves 100/box at Sally Beauty. Great and you just toss them!. Feel like you have nothing on.

Gone But Not Forgotten

I use my daughters dental gloves, but I really don't care to use gloves.

This is going to sound funny, but Miracle Gro. I use it on everything, and I see very good results.

I love the colored Eon markers. I have blue for siberian iris, green for the Japanese, and the paler green for lilies.

Plantskydd for moose. Oh my.

When I worked part of my territory was in the Adirondack Mountains. There are moose crossing signs many places, but the first time I saw one was in 1982, and I was driving a Triumph TR7 convertible, and the moose walked right in front of the car and stopped. It looked as large as the mountains themselves.

Wow ~ that view of a moose from a little car sure would make an impression!
Where are we going, and why am I in this hand-basket?

I like Preen for weed control. Can really tell the difference in the beds I use it on and the ones I don't.

An essential tool - garden map.

That's quite a map. I've tried but never been successful as I manage to make a mess of it, or the garden.

Fiskars pruners. Not as expensive as I though, ergonomic and sexy looking. I now have at least 8, from floral snips to 15 inch pruners.

Garden hose. For spraying the dog when she's about to storm through the lilies on her way to a squirrel.

by the way, just found this thread, and, jmorth, that map is diabolical. You could be a bank robber.

Are you?

Hilarious! Laura ~ for shame! I'd be more worried about his garden stealth
