I am sorry, this may sounds like a silly question. But it is important to me. Its very cold day here -1 & 0!
We recently got an allotment and really excited! we thought we got the right winter gear, but unfortunately the gloves we got was not good, same for socks. It is disappointed to say, that we had to return home without attending to the allotment today . I really appreciate if you can recommend good winter gears for outdoor gardening please. Many thanks
If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.

Cotswold, Trespass, Go Outdoors etc. Even basic stuff is fine for being outside at those [fairly mild ] temps.
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
I wear ski socks (because I ski and have a ready supply). I've also had fleece-lined trousers, which make a huge difference. Fleece or wool waistcoats add a layer without hindering arm movements.
Finally, you'll be amazed by the difference wool wrist warmers and a funnel-style neck warmer make. They stop the cold getting in between glove and cuff and around the top of your coat - draught excluders, of sorts. I like the ones from turtle-doves.co.uk as they are very soft and not at all bulky.
@Papi Jo even when it's bitterly cold there are plenty of bittercress and other weeds starting into growth in January that I like to hoick out before they really get going.
