Soothing, fun, educational

The most easygoing, informative discussion of horticulture and native plants. Love these guys’ vibes. I can almost taste their beer, almost feel the light breeze on the porch by the woods.

Native plant landscape ideas have been great. More please!

Great show! I love learning about the landscape ideas for native plants. I’m a Wildlife Biologist by education so I have a firm grasp on what plants help animals (pollinators includes) but I lack the skills for implementing these crucial plants in a suburban landscape form in a way as to not scare the neighbors ha ha. This show is helping me. More landscape tips and tricks using natives would be much appreciated. Keep up the great work! - Tim Simmons

Laid back conversation and ritual

Enjoy hearing John and Preston’s personalities as they teach abut horticulture and ecology with the help of experts guests. The harmonica opening and closing, the stories of pets and the final toast (and I don’t even drink alcohol) makes one feel among relaxed friends.
