The Well-dressed Gardener

There's no such thing as the wrong weather: only the wrong clothing. The key to enjoying gardening is to stay comfortable whatever the weather: in our garden centre in Guilsfield we have everything for your gardening wardrobe.

Coats: Waxed cotton is warm without being bulky, and also waterproof, lightweight and thornproof. Choose from storm-proof full length to practical short jackets with plenty of useful pockets.

Waterproofs: Lightweight overtrousers are invaluable on rainy days as there's nothing more uncomfortable than a wet pair of jeans sticking to your legs. Look for fleece-lined in winter.

Hats: wide-brimmed leather, suede or waxed cotton hats keep rain from running down your neck and getting in your eyes. Lighter canvas sun hats protect you on hot days.

Fleeces and sweatshirts: When you're digging hard one minute and doing some fiddly pruning the next, layers of fleece, sweatshirts and warm tops are flexible and trap warm air efficiently, keeping you toasty.

Gardening boots: A sturdy pair of lace-up waterproof gardening boots, lightweight but with ankle supports and a thick sole, are good in winter and summer. Steel toecaps protect against stray fork tines while digging.

Please ask the staff at our garden centre in Guilsfield​ for more information and advice about what to choose for your winter gardening wardrobe.
