Everything you want in a plant podcast

Veronica is entertaining and informative. She is such a wealth of information in a world that needs it. Stay away from the fb plant groups for advice and just come listen to Veronica. Of you have a problem, she most likely has the answer. Highly, highly recommend.

This podcast is my favorite new listen.

Veronica is incredibly helpful and she hits on all the things which have been my plant parent question marks. She’s also incredibly real, vulnerable, sharp as a tack and she is literally an echo of my own nerdy/self aware/deep/interested inner voice. Can’t recommend this enough for the folks who are ready to get into the sciencey fun of plant growing.

FR326 ,

Yes!

Really informative and surprisingly funny plant podcast. Thanks for being so generous with your knowledge and research, Veronica!
