Kenna Senior ,

Truly a perfect podcast

I’ve been a podcast listener for over 5 years now and don’t usually find myself leaving reviews, but this podcast truly deserves more recognition.

Rachel truly does an amazing job of breaking down plant care and other topics in a way that is very easy and fun to understand (even when it comes down to the science). I love that she includes other subject matter experts in the podcast and even goes into the history of particular plants or botany as a whole.

I often have a hard time finding podcasts that can keep me interested but Plant School has truly become a favorite. I’ve learned so much from Rachel and I regularly find myself listening to old episodes just for a refresher on my plant care (and honestly because I just can’t get enough).

Can’t wait to see what the future holds for this podcast and I’m beyond grateful for the knowledge it has given me!

New plant mom

I’m a new plant mom and have quickly become obsessed, loving podcasts I wanted one to help me learn about all things plants! I’ve learned so much from plant school, it’s exactly that school for learning about how to make your black thumb green! They touch on what should be simple topics (watering plants) and break down the why and how of their importance! Thanks for helping me make all my new plant babies thrive 😊

Stop the random comments Sam

Just found this podcast and the info is good but the delivery is not good. The random interrupting and being shocked by large plant words that Sam does is super distracting. His random add-ins are annoying and not funny. Stop being a bro and let your partner host a good podcast by herself.
