There’s a right glove for every garden task and every gardener performing it—here are our favorites.

From trimming the spiniest shrub to planting the tiniest seed, gardening can take its toll on our hands. (We swear, even gardening in fresh, soft compost, we manage to get a cracked cuticle or one of those invisible splinters that repeatedly pokes a single nerve ending.) Thankfully, there’s a garden glove for every job and every type of gardener, and we’ve ranked our favorites.

We only recommend things we love. If you buy something through our site, we might earn a commission.
