    Hello gardening friends! This week we are talking to Tania about her garden Fantail and Flax in the Bay of Plenty. 

    Tania shares all about the different parts of her 7 acre garden (huge!) which include an arboretum, cottage garden, native area, and Japanese inspired garden. She is an absolute powerhouse when it comes to gardening knowledge and we are very fortunate to be able to talk to her.

    Hello lovely garden friends! This week we are talking about Meadowscaping and to say we are excited about this trend is an understatement! 

    Meadowscaping is the act of converting urban areas (like your lawn) into meadows for maximum environmental benefits and also is just so aesthetically pleasing.

Six stars

Libby and Greer are basically my best friends. Not IRL, I just love this podcast SO much. Usually podcast banter annoys me but they are so hilarious and all their content is gardening gold. We Like To Garden can quite literally turn around a bad week, not least because it gets me so inspired about getting into the garden 💚💚💚

As I live in Christchurch it's great to have local content with the correct seasons. Aimed more at beginner gardeners but I can see the development of their gardening knowledge over the life of the podcast so far which is great. I thik this will become an increasingly valuable resource as they continue to learn more about gardening.

Love tuning into these girls for relatable, useful and fun gardening chat. I often listen as I’m taking my twin babes for a walk in the pram and end up chuckling to myself as I walk along the street.
