Like story time for gardener grownups

Listening to this pod is like hanging out in your own secret garden. Always interesting and always a spark for the imagination. I imagine host Jennifer Ebeling in her classical library full of botanical literature and artwork, happily sipping tea brewed from some fragrant thing she grew, seated in front of a crackling fire as she tells her garden tales. A cozy and lovely treat every day. Perfect to listen to while you cook.
