Gold Leaf gardening gloves were developed by Peter Cooney for Britain's discerning gardeners, and they are now available in the United States from Gardeners Supply. Highly regarded for their quality, feel, softness and pliability, the gloves were quickly adopted by the professional gardeners at the Royal Horticultural Society, whose patron is the Queen, for use in their gardens, which are among the most visited in England. They have the unique combination of toughness and dexterity. The Winter Touch style is perfect for those gardening chores that can be tackled before spring. They are waterproof, breathable and lined with Thinsulate. The reinforced palm makes them good to use with gardening tools, like rakes and shovels. Available in mens and womens sizes at gardeners.com for $39.95.
