Runs the Gamut on all things plant 🪴
A long overdue review on my part. Host Jane Perrone is absolutely charming. No matter if you entertaining your first foray into plant keeping or plant academic, On the Ledge has something for everyone. I greatly appreciate the focus on sustainability in tandem with levity in contrast some trend driven, aggressively consumptive newer plant podcast. A range of experts and hobbyist join Jane on a weekly basis and manages always to feel fresh. As a bonus there is a dedicated Facebook group to support your growing journey and Jane is always responsive to the listeners.
Listen! Your plants will thank you
I began listening to this podcast at the start of the pandemic and have learned SO much. Accessible to all levels of expertise, On The Ledge should be a must listen for all plant parents! I cannot wait for the release of Jane’s upcoming book, Legends of the Leaf.
Just found this podcasts a few weeks ago and can’t stop listening. Anyone with even a slight interest in plants will love the information and entertainment of the show. Highly recommend!
