What to look for
If you are keen gardner or full time horticulturalist then appropriate garden clothing is essential. You are looking for UV protection, flexibility, comfort and easy care. A few pockets for ‘bits and pieces as well’, mobil phone pockets are almost essential as any burt nurseryman does not have time to sit at a desk all day.
Those working in the industry will also look for embroidered logos and material that can stand up to almost daily washing. So this all goes for shirts, pants, shorts, hats and polar fleece.
