What our customers say

They have revolutionised winter gardening for me. They are snug, really comfy for those awkward positions you get into when gardening, great for the knees with the built in pads and keep you dry. And am really enjoying them.

Women's Waterproof Gardening Trousers
Bunny Guinness

They are a godsend to all keen lady gardeners. Real gardeners have to endure all weathers because a lot of work takes place in the dark chilly months. Thank you Genus - wonderfully practical trousers that I look forward to wearing for many a year!!

Women's Warm and Dry Gardening Trousers
Val Bourne

These trousers are very comfortable for gardening, they're true to size and have lots of useful pockets. I especially like the pocket for secateurs.

Hawkers, hedges, lawns, and edges

About five years ago we planted a hornbeam hedge on the front boundary that faces the lane and our neighbours opposite.  Regular mulching and irrigation in the early years meant it has quickly given us a hedge...

A new leaf bin

With the imminent arrival of autumn we thought we’d better construct a new bin for the abundance of fallen leaves that we get here at Genus HQ.  The upright wooden posts of the MK1 version had become rotten...

Early action for late performers
