Intro to Bonsai
Do any of you remember that store in the mall that sold mini bonsai trees and meditative water features?

Perfect Podcast for a Walk
I love listening to B&G while walking my dog in the park. It’s perfectly planty and allows me to appreciate the nature around me on my walk!
i blame myself for not being able to listen to someone so cheerful and easily excitable. it just comes across as over the top and fake. also, the episode i tried to listen to was about growing citrus indoors and she wouldn’t stop giggling about her lime tree “limey” which is a derogatory term for a british person. for the life of christ don’t name your plants.
Love this podcast
This is a very upbeat, informational podcast especially for beginner plant parents. Maria always finds interesting guests and the content is never too dry. It’s my new favorite podcast.
