In 1901 the Hon. Frances Wolseley, daughter and heiress (by special remainder) of that famous soldier Lord Wolseley, established a school of gardening at her home, Glynde, near Lewes, which has proved a splendid success, and turned out many competent lady gardeners. It is under the direct supervision of Miss Wolseley herself, who, as regards landscape gardening in particular, is one of the best authorities on gardening in the country. In her extremely practical book, " Gardening for Women," she has given some valuable advice to the girl who aspires to become a trained gardener, a profession for women which has much to recommend it. It is certainly one way of solving the problem of what to do with our girls, and the thanks of many are due to Miss Wolseley for the manner in which she has demonstrated the practical side of gardening for women at Glynde.
Readers of Every Woman's Encyclopaedia will require no introduction to the literary work of this gifted and practical horticulturist, since a charming series of instructive articles on gardening by her have been appearing regularly in its pages. These articles establish indisputably Miss Wolseley's claim to be that rarely-gifted person - the expert who can write charmingly as well as technically.
