The fragrant climber of Jasmine juhi has some tiny spikes or furs covering the bark surface , since past also i had these allergic reaction to some plants due to their surface having tiny thorns, spikes, hair , but this time it needed medicines, wash thoroughly with soap water and apply antiseptic. am now alert of skin allergies while handling soil , not every soil will hurt but this one had red ants!
I have already removed many plants like bougainvilleas ,we had a lot and now kept one in smaller container only , the thorns of bougainvilleas is the only one factor that makes it difficult to grow and trim regularly, other wise the plant is very forgiving and needs very little care and gives such lovely colorful blooms. Then the agaves are also not with us and the aloe vera has taken a space above the eye level.

1) Many people do not like the touch of mud and soil as it seeps into nails and leaves stains on nails.It also may be a reason to spread disease and germs.
2) There may be insect larvae, ants, fertilizers, remains of cowdung that may react differently when they come in contact with direct skin.
3) Handling some plants with thorns, spikes, furs and hairs gloves give extra protection to your hands from getting scratched, cut or abrased.
4) While trimming is an essential part of gardening they give extra support to hands while using garden scissors and cutters and also prevent fingers from getting hurt or scratched while trimming plants.
5) You save a lot of water. yes washing hands soiled in mud is one task that requires a lot of water, trust me , i know!
6) The earthworms and all slimy creatures in the garden do not come in direct contact with hands and the screams that come out, do come out but are reduced in volume with glove covered hands.
7) The containers and pots also have a layer of moss or fungus growth outside which may sometimes cause an allergic reaction and gloves help to protect our hand from these while handling garden pots.
8) When plants attacked by fungus, mold, white ants, aphids, it really would be difficult to clean them by hand as many times this needs bathing the plant and physically removing these pests , other wise the plant dies off. Here the garden gloves have been of great help as I ca easily wash the plants with shower and clean them with glove covered hands.
Every gardener some time or other faces skin allergies due to soil, some plants, thorns, or the liquid oozing out after trimming plants, and gloves are an essential part for every gardener.
If you want you can also buy disposable gloves that are easy to sue and come in compact packing's and are disposable, so you do away with the hassle of washing. drying and storing!
