What to Wear For Gardening
As gardening usually requires whole body movement, for digging, hoeing, and raking, general advice is to wear clothes that don’t bind such as loose-fitting pants or shorts with a roomy shirt, or the waistless comfort of a gardening apron.
Longer, more elegant garden aprons with large pockets easily provide comfort while doing daily garden maintenance, including dead-heading flowers, weeding, and bud picking.
Choosing natural fabrics such as cotton and linen over synthetic alternatives allows the clothes to “breathe” and wick moisture away from skin, providing the coolest option.
Denim and other durable cotton fabrics also keep external dampness and dirt away from the skin.
Finally, A long-sleeved over shirt makes a smart addition to the garden wardrobe even on the hottest days when you’re working among the brambles. The added arm coverage protects skin from thorns, poison ivy, sunburn, and—to a degree—bugs.
There are lots of useful websites with information about gardening, one of our favourites fro a monthly guide to the gardens Sarah Raven.
