I have recently decided to start gardening and growing veg. I was looking for a podcast and they all seemed a bit staid and for older people. This one is great, so much information and enthusiasm. Really enjoying it . Well done!
Gave it 12 minutes
Expecting some insights into gardening/Chelsea but largely self publicising and rather dull chit chat. Decided life was too short, I’ll try something more suitable for me
Informative, educational and light-hearted podcast that is brilliant for both beginner and experienced plant fans alike. 5*
