    How important is weeding, really? Should we be meticulous about keeping a clean garden space, or is it OK to develop a greater sense of how the garden plays into your landscape?

Wonderful!

Wonderful podcast! Every question I ever have about gardening seems to be answered on the podcast and/ or the website. Thank you so much for teaching me so much!

I look forward to this every day!

A lovely little podcast with short and sweet information on a variety of gardening topics. Kevin is the best and I love watching all his longer form content on YouTube as well. He has some interesting guests on here to talk and makes an effort to include info that will suit gardeners from many zones. I live in Canada (zone 5a/b) and there has been plenty of episodes that are pertinent to what I can do in my garden and how to extend my season. Even learning about things I wouldn’t have a chance of growing outside here I love since it’s something different! I have learned so much (and saved myself a ton of $$ in making mistakes or investing in stuff I actually wouldn’t use/like) from Kevin and his Epic Team!! THANK YOU!!
Random, but one of my favourite parts of the podcast is the intro/outro audio. It makes me feel at peace hearing it every single time.

Truly Epic

Kevin’s knowledge and presentation of gardening information, on a wide range of topics, is easily digestible. As a new gardener I feel years ahead of where I would be without Epic Gardening!
