spread a little liquid nail on the palm side of the glove fingertips, let dry

Use "mechanix" gloves from the hardware/auto parts store. The thorns do not penetrate the fingers and they last years.

Thanks for the tips on gloves.
My leather ones have holes in the fingers I use most, and I need replacements asap!

I know this is going to sound silly, but i bought a pair of 12 inch plastic kitchen tongs at the dollar store and use them to grab the rose stem while i cut it.

I was always looking for a full fingered glove for working out at the gym - a guy at the gym was wearing a pair of full fingered gloves which turned out to be from a company called 'Bionic'. I bought three different pair: two pair I use at the gym and they are lasting longer than other gloves I have tried and one pair I am using and abusing in my garden work -I am in my second year with these gloves. I think the two pair I use in the gym are gardening gloves and the one pair I use in the garden are 'heavy duty' worker gloves (but they are not bulky at all -just tough). I have used the one pair in dealing with roses, but my roses are being semi-neglected as I am re-landscaping the rest of my yard. I don't know if this will help... just my two cents!

In addition to needing gloves for rose thorns, I needed them to be long because I'm always scratching my forearms. My son bought me the perfect pair, from Bear Wallow Glove Company through Amazon. The Protector Rose Gauntlet Gloves They have a flexible leather hand portion and a rough leather forearm portion.
The gloves are long, almost to the elbow and the hand portion is so flexible it is like a dress glove so you can feel what you're doing. They are the best garden gloves I ever used.
The also have terrific customer service; I need to exchange for a larger size and they were extremely cooperative and didn't charge for shipping the exchange.

Blue Hawk One Size Fits All Unisex Leather Multipurpose Gloves
Item #: 37595 | Model #: LGP03

Elbow length leather gloves do the job and dont wear out. I use them for gardening and I can spray them clean and when they are dry rub a little vaseline on the palm/finger section. Lowes usually has good selection in store.

Read my review here...

The Protector Rose Gauntlet Gloves

Bear Wallow Glove Company
The Protector Rose Gauntlet Gloves

I still use constantly; they really protect my arms (and I have very thin skin from medications, and it tears easily). I leave them on a chair next to the door so I can grab them quickly. The upper portions are still in perfect condition and the suede "hands" are only dirty, not damaged at all. I know they're expensive but they've replaced at least 4 other pairs I would have bought in the meantime! 40 reviews and all but one are 5 star (one was 4 star).
