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.

Cut backs
