Buy Pink Gardening Apparel and Accessories Online

Updated on August 30, 2012

Who says women can’t look fashionable or indulge in a statement of feminine power while working in the garden? Who says garden gloves, safety glasses, boots, and shoes can’t be colors that aren’t dull and drab? Granted, garden gloves will never have the sexy appeal of satin elbow-length ball gown gloves, and garden shoes and clogs will never come with that flattering stiletto heel. But we surely can add color to ourselves, and also contribute to breast cancer awareness, by wearing pink garden apparel and making use of pink garden accessories.

Say goodbye to boring brown, tepid tan, banal beige, characterless khaki, and gone-to-seed green with this selection of pink garden apparel and accessories you can buy online.

Pink Garden Gloves

Working in the garden without gloves is a death sentence for hands. Dirt under the nails, chipped and broken finger nails, nicks and cuts that open the door to infection, and dry, chapped skin are the prices paid without the protection of garden gloves.  Why wear tedious tan, boring blue, or banal brown when you can sport pink?

When making your selection, think about whether you’d like cotton, leather, or synthetic fabric and whether the manufacturer indicates that the gloves are washable. Also consider size; some styles only come in one-size-fits-all.

Pink Garden Footwear

Garden footwear has a two-fold purpose: it is designed to protect your feet from water and dirt, and to protect your indoor carpets and flooring from garden grit when you leave your garden shoes at the door.

Many garden footwear styles feature open heels, which are ideal for easy-on, easy-off wearing.

I’ve had my purple “rubber muckies” for years now, a fabulous gift from my daughter. Not only do I wear them in the garden, I also use them in the winter, getting around in the snow and ice, because of their deep treads and thick soles. Alas, they are on their way out, having had a long and useful life. My next pair will be pink.

The Original MuckBoots Women's Scrub Outdoor Boot
The Original MuckBoots Women's Scrub Outdoor Boot

The Original Muck Boot Company women's scrub outdoor boot is comfortable, durable, lightweight, flexible, and 100% waterproof. Easy to put on and take off, it is designed to keep feet dry and steps steady in rain, snow, and slippery muck conditions.


Protect Your Eyes with Pink Safety Glasses

Safety glasses are a must when working with power tools, and I think we all know that. But even when working with traditional hand tools in the garden, a number of objects can fly unexpectedly into your eyes—rose thorns when pruning roses, dirt clods when transplanting or weeding, even droplets of products you spray on your plants. Some plants, such as impatiens and broom, produce exploding seeds; if you work in the garden with you face close to these plants when their seeds are ripe and ready to fly, much better to be safe than sorry.

Pink Knee Pads and Kneeling Cushions

Knee pads or a kneeling cushion are absolute essentials if you customarily get down on your hands and knees to work in the garden. To all you young, powerful, healthy, and invincible-feeling women out there, let me assure you that mistreating your knees early in life can lead to long-term problems.

You may already have several kneeling pads, as I do, and perhaps you even double them up if you are working on a concrete or stone surface. But are yours pink?

Pink Facts from the Elizabethan Era

Pink symbolized happiness and joy.

By law, only lower and upper classes were permitted to wear the color pink.

Medieval men loved to wear pink hose.

Pink was not associated with girls, women, or femininity.

See more Elizabethan pink facts at Elizabethan Era.

Pink Was the Color for Boys?

Did you know that some associated pink with boys from about the turn of the century until the World War II era? And you guessed it, blue was the color for girls. Take a look at what Cecil Adams has to say about the history and evolution of children’s clothing styles and colors, and about boys in pink.

Deciding Which Pink Garden Apparel Items and Accessories To Buy Online

One of the most valuable shopping aids the Internet delivers is the comment or review feature. People who already bought the item that interests you have the opportunity, with many vendor sites, to express their opinions about their purchases. It’s well worth your while to read those comments and reviews. Think about this valuable information in these terms: If you are in a retail store, and you want an unbiased opinion, whom can you ask?  Pretty much, no one.

Although a picture may be worth a thousand words, it is a sad fact that some item photos aren’t worth even one word or two. Follow up the visual with the verbal, and read the seller’s product specifications in detail. Also, search the Internet for more information about that specific product. The effort you put in will be worth your time.

There Is Never Enough Pink in the Garden: Pink Garden Tools

There’s always room for more pink. When it comes to clippers, weeders, trowels, watering cans, hoses, and yes, even wheelbarrows, pink makes your presence known. Check out these pink garden tools to buy online.

      Interesting that you bring up pink pods in prisons...was watching an MSNBC Lockup Raw the other night to find that the color code for a living section was purple. I'm thinking purple may be as calming. Now I'm on the hunt for purple gardening tools.

      i love pink, and how interesting that it was not always considered "feminine." You know me, always have to add something about the past and cops...there are some prisons who have PINK sections or pods, to calm prisoners. One county even puts them in pink tents. hmmm

      I particularly like that Apollo Pink Apron/garden tool set! When we garden next year, why not?

      LOL! You are a smart person. Get those jeans out of direct contact with dirt and give them an extension on life. Thanks so much for reading and commenting.

      I think I need the pink kneeling cushion. My favorite jeans now have a knee hole...

      Great stuff here--thanks!

      I can imagine wearing pink on an overcast, rainy day as I slosh in the mud and weeds in the garden. That idea alone cheers me up! Excellent hub - really loved it. :)

      Mulberry, your comment put a smile on my face. There surely are pink lovers out there, and looks like you are among them. Thanks so much for the chuckle and the good words. Wonder what Wallis Simpson would have had to say about the pink?

      Some say you can never be too thin, others say you can never be too rich, I say, you can never have too much pink! Well, nearly so. Lovely stuff.

      FlyingPanther, I wouldn't dream of telling you to wear pink, even though you just might look kind of cute in it. ;)

      Feline Prophet, that's quite a vision you created. I'm thinking pink collars and bows, pink claws (you can get little rubber tips in almost any color to cover claws), and maybe a tutu or two for some of the more performance-oriented felines. :)

      ST, perhaps you will write a hub on pink garden-wear for those of us who don't do anything useful in a garden apart from lounging around exclaiming at the beautiful pink flowers? :)

      Dear Sally.

      Hello, hello, I always like to see your comments. Glad you enjoyed the selection.

      Sabu, I don't have an answer to that question. Perhaps we can explore that together?

      I do know that yellow attracts any insect interested in flowers, and so yellow is not a good color to wear while working in the garden, unless you want bees and wasps around you, in very close proximity.

      I think the color pink does a lot of cheerful good for humans, in or out of the garden. :)

      Well done again, ST. Do you think the colour pink does something good to the flowers and plants and to the birds and the bees?

      First my friend, I must thank you for your help. You've got a great eagle eye, and it's a privilege that I can count on you for a thorough proofreading.

      Glad you loved this Hub. I know you don't care to garden, but I also know you love gardens and the wonderful things that come out of them.

      To my dearest talented friend, the gardener,

      Absolutely positively one of your many bests! I so loved this hub, even though I hate gardening LOL. Pink, yea! My granddaughter would be thrilled with her own special pink gardening supplies. Sadly, her mom and I are not gardeners, so, my question to you. How about I ship her to your house for a week in August and you can teach her the ins and outs of gardening? :)

      Wonderful hub, and I enjoyed the tidbits on the history of pink.
