Genus is the world’s only brand of high-performance, technical clothing specially designed by gardeners for gardeners. Based in the English countryside in a 250-year-old cottage with an amazing garden, we're all passionate gardeners and we understand exactly what gardeners need.

Genus offers a range of men’s and women’s gardening clothes and gardening accessories, with new styles and colours being introduced on a regular basis.

Our newest product, the Gardening ProPant, brings next-level comfort and protection for demanding days in the garden or for working with slab, stone or gravel.

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.

Sue and the Story of Genus Gardenwear

We're totally passionate about gardening. We are an English company, based in the beautiful Cotswold countryside. Our range of men’s gardening clothing and women’s gardening clothing are designed by keen gardeners who understand how the right sort of clothes can make gardening easier and more comfortable.

Gardening is about kneeling and bending, stretching and walking, and being outdoors in all weathers, and all seasons. The clothes gardeners wear have to work for all activities and in all conditions. This is what Genus Gardenwear offers.
