Any gardener will tell you, gloves are essential. Not only do they keep your hands from getting dirty, they also help prevent injury. From thorns to nettles to splinters, there are many dangers in the garden - many of which can lead to infections. By wearing gardening gloves, you lower the risks of getting cut or pricked, meaning you can keep gardening for longer and won't have to wait around doing nothing while you heal. Similarly, our hands carry a lot of germs, and we can transmit diseases to our plants just by touching them. We can decrease this risk by wearing gloves or changing your gloves after handling infected plants. Whether you have acres of space to garden or just a balcony, it is important to keep yourself (and your plants) safe and healthy.
