I've known quite a few women who refused to be "bothered" with plants but their husbands made it their hobby and they enjoy it so much. The joy of gardening isn't sexually exclusive to women - just look at the banner on this page. It's Dave's Garden.
While I did the actual hybridizing of the daylilies it was my husband, Jack, who raised the 1,364 seeds under lights and grew them.
