Really enjoying this podcast , completely demystifying gardening!
I’m so glad I found this podcast. It’s so informative with accessible language. I’ll be sharing and listening again. Thanks Seed Pod team.
Such a great podcast!!
Becky and Richard really know their stuff! They share helpful tips together with “the clever science bit” in an accessible and entertaining way. I really look forward to each new episode. Their myth busting episode was a game changer and I’ve achieved great results from my allotment this year with their multi sowing and no dig advice. If you’re a new gardener, or even if you’ve been gardening for a while, give it a listen - you won’t be disappointed!
