It’s the time of year when a gardener is in need of a new pair (or two) of sturdy gloves to deal with pruning, cutting back and generally sorting out the garden before winter comes. North Yorkshire based is a company that stocks a range of over forty pairs of gloves -from those suitable for agricultural use, to thornproof pairs for rose pruning and lightweight fitted gloves for fine work like seed-sowing. There are Hunter wellies too and pond waders for when you need to take to the water. There’s plenty of other garden equipment on the website, so if you want to support our friends in the North, buying from this Yorkshire company is one way you can do it.
