Brilliant, calming, informative and fun

I LOVE this podcast and have learnt so much about my house plants (and some I’ll never own) - just listening to knowledgable, interesting people makes me happy. Great guests, great music and super soundscapes.

My Quiet Place

Ridiculously calming as well as being the voice of reason in a veritable chaos of horticultural education

Top of the pots

Love this podcast, always something new to learn and now there’s such a back catalogue to listen to, I’m never at a loose end for something to tune into. I love Jane’s presenting and guests and... basically everything. How did it take me so long to find it I ask myself?! From one Hessayon fan to another, thank you!!
