You can hear me talking about 'Gardening Women' on BBC Radio Suffolk together with the terrific Georgina Wroe! Follow link : http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/player/p00v0w2x and fast forward to 2:34:00. (This link will expire on 19 July 2012.)
The BBC have announced today that Monty Don is to return to presenting the BBC's flagship gardening programme on BBC2, Gardeners' World, after an absence of three years. This means goodbye to Toby Buckland and also, sadly for Gardening Women, goodbye to Alys Fowler.
Rachel de Thame returns to present alongside Monty, Carol Klein and Joe Swift.
This site is dedicated to women who garden past and present. Here you will find updates on famous and little-known gardening women from the past, some of whose stories appear in my book, Gardening Women, and some who don't - because there just wasn't room to get them all in. So please send me your ideas on inspiration gardening women so they can be included as well.
And as a gardener myself, I won't be able to resist writing about some of my own favourite gardens and plants as I work away on my new garden in Suffolk and high in the sky on my roof garden in London.
