From the Sussex Express, 22nd April 1905


We make no apology for again bringing to the notice of our readers the Glynde School for Lady Gardeners. The Hon Frances Wolseley has started what is not only a very valuable work at Farm House, Glynde, where young women of good education and a love of out-door occupations may be trained to a useful and profitable means of livelihood. Nowadays it is not so much a question: What shall we do with our boys? As what shall we do with our girls? Those with a taste for rural pursuits could certainly not do better than take up gardening under such pleasant and systematic conditions as obtained at Miss Wolseley's school. Whether it be for one's own personal pleasure of for a living the scheme is calculated to ensure satisfaction either way.
