Love it!

On the ledge has quickly become my favorite horticultural podcast. Jane is so knowledgeable, practical, not to mention hilarious. The way the segments and music is organized has a nice rhythm and style to it. It’s really a relaxing and fun horticultural podcast to listen to!

New plant Mom 🌿

I’ve only been collecting houseplants for about 4 months and it’s been so rewarding and therapeutic already . Jane is hilarious and I appreciate the content she works so hard to put out. I’ve learned so much since I started listening and I look forward to each new episode with excitement. It’s nice to have somewhere to go where others are just as passionate about plants as I am (for some reason I’ve just not found anyone that wants to obsessively discuss plants all day with me 🤷🏾‍♀️) Thank you, Jane!!!

My new favorite

Just excellent. Informative, entertaining, interesting, and down to Earth. I’ve binged a ton of episodes this week; a true delight.
