Lockdown is proof that now, more than ever, we are a nation of green-fingered gardeners at heart.

Whether you’ve been nurturing acres of plant life for years or have taken your first foray into planting herbs on your balcony, we’ve had more time and - in parts - headspace to get stuck in.

The only thing is, gardening isn’t the most glamorous of hobbies. When we think of it we conjure up images of muddy knees, dirt-embedded fingernails, and unflattering overalls.

But it doesn’t have to be that way...

We’ve scoured the internet to find the best pairs of beautiful, yet sturdy gardening gloves to add a pop of elegance of proceedings.

From bold colours to dainty patterns, gardening has never been so glamorous...
