You can’t go wrong with a smart new pair of gardening gloves! Our wide range features classic and comfortable fabrics like tweed, denim, and corduroy. Each design is available in a choice of sizes for a good fit. Padded palm and fingers protect the hand, and mesh fourchettes (that’s the material on the side of each finger, joining the front to the back of the gloves) keep things nice and cool. A wrist strap prevents debris dropping into the glove, and real leather trim adds a touch of luxury. These gloves are a cut above in the style stakes and come in a huge range of patterns and colours to suit any gardener!

Working Hands Hand Cream
Gardening can be tough on the hands. Weeding, planting, pruning and digging in damp soil and in cold weather can really take its toll, even when you’re wearing gloves, so of course we like to keep a good stock of O’Keeffe’s Working Hands Hand Cream – a moisturizer that heals, relieves, and repairs extremely dry, cracked hands. Specially formulated to create a protective barrier on the skin’s surface that locks in moisture and keeps your skin hydrated.

Hand Care Gift Sets
Good things come in small packages. Heathcote & Ivory have fine-tuned the art of gift-giving for garden-lovers with their mini hampers and gift sets containing combinations of must-haves for gardeners’ hands and skin – to help slough away dirt and to lavish hands with, post gardening. The Wellness Hamper includes beautiful formulations infused with essential oils and scents of rhubarb and lilac. Tucked inside a neat hamper finished with plastic-free, compostable wrap and a plantable flower seed gift tag tied with string.
