Pilot Episode - Christmas 2020
The first episode of an exciting new podcast from professional gardener and garden designer, Mike Palmer.
We join Mike from his beautiful garden in Bournemouth where he has spent most of 2020 sharing his gardening and garden design knowledge on his Instagram.

They discuss Tamsin’s very first jobs in horticulture, including being an interior landscaper and gardener for the Bournemouth Parks Department Tamsin can be found on Instagram.
Mike also chats to his best friend and professional gardener, Otis Scadding , who shares how gardening could just be the tonic we all need this winter and how gardening helps him live with anxiety and depression.
As we approach the end of the year, Mike also encourages us all to consider and share our gardening new year resolutions.
