It must be said that when it comes to any bias against women, there are certain tasks that are often referred to in a stereotypical way. Women drivers, for example, attract a fair amount of criticism from the great unwashed, as do women doctors and – God forbid – women working in any manual sector such as construction. Put a woman into certain sporting arenas such as football, and the very pits of hell seem quite pleasant when compared with the vitriol displayed by some knuckle-draggers. However, women in gardening – women gardeners if you like – are surely safe from patronising attitudes, aren’t they? Well, the Telegraph’s ‘Womens Life’ section – written by women for women – had some advice for what it calls ‘gardenistas’.
