What a great idea, Michal. I was just contemplating ordering some.

I have some nasty shrub roses that were given to me a few years ago that I want to remove. They have had MAYBE one bloom a year on them ( in a good year ), but have many monstrous thorns on them. Oh, how I could use some Fox Gloves to help me remove them.

On a more serious note, I have been thinkiing about getting some because, as you know, I am also in the jewellery business, and going to work with dirt under my finger nails, is frowned upon. Just imagine my showing a nice 1.5 ct diamond ring, slipping it onto my “dirt under the finger nail” hand. Do you think it would show well? I DON’T THINK SO. LOL

Good idea, Michal. I hope there are many entries.

Actually…...that diamond ring would probably look very appealing to a gardener displayed on a Foxglove, jroot. :)

oh that’s a great idea.. I think the company should use that in their promotional pictures – when they are saying they make a great “little black dress accessory”
I think I’ll write them and pass along your idea!

I use diamonds for sharpening my tools, so I would probably be ok with dirt under the fingernails but what could beat wearing a blue glove with the diamonds? I hope you win, good luck!
