What kinds of gloves are best for gardening?

It's nice to have some gloves around the house

When you're puttering around your petunia patch or digging out dandelions, you are going to want a working gloves that are soft and pliable, easy to put on and take off, and conform reasonably well to the shape of your hand. Gloves protect your hands from blisters, cuts, abrasions, chipped nails and infections caused by soil bacteria. It's a good idea to keep a heavy-duty pair on hand for the bigger chores and a light, flexible, waterproof pair for planting and potting. Leather gloves are the most expensive, but they pay for themselves many times over in durability and toughness. Goatskin is the finest leather; sheepskin and cowhide are strong, as is pigskin, which is the most available leather for work gloves.
