There was an article in today’s Edinburgh Evening News re the Edinburgh School of Gardening for Women.
They are appealing for information. It maybe of interest to someone.

That's very interesting, Scottish.
Please add another blog if the Edinburgh Evening News follows up on the response to its article.

Interesting to read this. It's good that women are not being excluded from so many things now, but I think there's still a long way to go before they are properly appreciated by the domineering men in power.

What a great blog Scottish. I know an interesting lady gardener who I will ask about the article. My neighbour's father was a Scottish horticulturist so I will also ask her. Unfortunately he has recently died.

Thank you all. I hope she manages to get a response. I will Post any updates if they publish.
Hywel I must admit that working in a 'male' environment myself things seem to be improving but it may be another generation or 2 before 'all things' are equal!
Linda thank you.
