Love this podcast!
So enjoyable and informative! Love the back and forth chit chat that reveals so many great nuggets s. It's encouraging to hear the hosts' at home the experience with each plant discussed.
Eager for the next podcast
Best way to spend time either in or away from my garden! Enjoy their repartee very much - makes me smile. And that’s always a good thing, right?
Content is Great! Lots of valuable ideas . Steve has a great voice for radio. Knows his stuff too. Danielle has some good suggestions , but her voice ( not for radio ) and the little girl giggles, Ugh! Love the British input.
