|I'm with team no gloves, I can't feel what I'm doing with gloves on. I do take a glove out with me when I work in the garden so that I have something to grab a thistle or nettle with, but odds are I'll just use the trowell to expose some roots and pick it up with those.|
My hands are a mess of scratches and the dirt under my finger nails takes for ever to shift but my plants thrive because i can feel them and the soil they are in.

|I agree with no gloves...except for the bayberry bushes.|
I got'em (gloves), I hate'em, I should wear 'em, I don't. My nails would certainly thank me if I did...

|My hands are already becoming glove-like for the season!|
I have gloves in my glovebox, behind the seat of my truck, (under the seat?) and even in my everyday tool bucket. Everyone has covered plants that do dictate their use but I'll add another: cactuses (or cacti if you prefer). I still get stuck though
