Hope everyone enjoyed Woman's Hour's Bank Holiday special on gardening women of all sorts today. Jane, Duchess of Northumberland was so impressive on her mission to transform the bleak land around Alnwick Castle. I can't wait to devote an area of my garden to night-time plantings inspired by Marylynn Abbott and Anne Jennings. Hear how Phyllis Reiss created those magical beds at Tintinhull. And, of course, it was great to be able to talk about those inspiring early women gardeners at Kew known as the 'Kewties' and 'Kewriousities' – not my puns!
