|Rosarians- My old rose gloves, found on a sale rack several years ago, are finally wearing out (mainly from the blackberries). |
Rose gloves are expensive, and I want to choose some good ones. I see there are now "synthetic leather" ones that are heavily advertised. Should I believe the hype? I thought goatskin might be best. Any advice?

|I can sympathize as I have 2 pretty old pr of leather gauntlets that I got at a nursery sale. I can't say enough about how valuable gauntlets are in handling a lot of roses. I personally would keep looking for real leather gauntlets. Maybe feed stores would sell them and have you checked online?|

|Take a look on Amazon under Bionic Rose Gardening gloves. Those are the best gauntlets in my opinion. They are leather, and very comfortable. Make sure you use their measurements to order.|
Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.

|Several years ago a friend gave me a pair of John Deere ladies leather gloves. They worked great both for handling roses and pulling wild blackberry brambles. But they eventually did wear out and I have not been able to find them again. Other leather is okay, but not quite the same.|

|I have not bought any yet, still thinking about the Bionics. It seems odd to buy mail order, glove fit is so personal.|
I would kinda like John Deere, always had a soft spot for their tractors. The gloves must be deere hide, tee hee.
