A brilliant pearl
...in the ocean of podcasts. I really like Jane’s style of presenting and her eagerness to cover a wide variety of topics. Thanks for making it. 👍🏻
On the ledge
Jane hosts & produces a must listen houseplant podcast. I love the homeliness of the programme & the global community Jane has built. This week’s on dormancy was very useful & interesting. On the question of beech hedging retaining its leaves, my understanding comes from friends at RGBE who told me that it is the pruning of the hedge that causes this. The cutting off of the tips causes this, as that is where the messaging to drop leaves is contained.
This pod cast is brilliantly informative and with a chilled vibe, I love listening after a stressful work day to relax and get some great tips. The shows notes are great to get more info and shops
