We won't go into the myriad of soil borne infections that can infect your skin. That's for the medical books. We won't go into the shards of pottery builders always leave behind in the soil. That's for the Antiques Roadshow. We won't go into your first aid box (you do have one?) looking for a plaster you can open with one hand after a particularly vigorous bout of rose pruning. We will however offer you gloves. More gloves that you can shake a stick at (stick not currently available).
