Always wear old clothes when gardening.  You can find an abundance of used jeans in the thrift store.  If you are going to be out in the sun a long time, be sure and wear sunscreen, or wear a long sleeved shirt and a hat to protect your face.

Here are some more frugal tips to save money on gardening clothing.

 

- Tie plastic grocery bags around your shoes to keep them clean while gardening.
 
- Running your fingernails over a bar of soap to get it under your fingernails will keep dirt out.
 
- Large straw hats can also be found at the thrift store.
 
- To keep cooler, wear a t-shirt shirt when gardening, and top it with a long sleeve thrift store shirt left open.
 
- Men's shirts often cost less, fit looser and be more comfortable for gardening.
 
- Reinforce the knees on your pants with patches or wear knee pads.
