Typical isn’t it?
You wait weeks for a new Mic the Gardener podcast and TWO come along at the same time.
So why two?
Following a request for you to send me your gardening related New Year’s resolutions to include within episode two, I was completely inundated with your responses. It quickly became apparent that what was to have been a five minute slot within the second podcast was going to be difficult to pull off. So many great resolutions and ideas; innovative, topical, sustainable and ALL completely relevant and worthy of inclusion.
So, Jo (my producer) and I sat down (virtually via Zoom) and chatted through all of the resolutions and recorded the whole shebang. Thirty-five minutes of great ideas and your resolutions, including those of some gardening celebrities including Arthur Parkinson, Laetitia Maklouf, Rosy & Rob Hardy, Jimi Blake and celebrity florist, Simon Lycett. It really is a great listen.
Incidentally, Simon Lycett will be my guest in episode three!
And as for the SECOND episode, a lovely chat with nature and food writer and author of the ever popular Almanac, Lia Leendertz. Lia chats about everything Almanac related including where the idea came from, the monthly meditations (be prepared to stand barefoot in your borders!) and how she started out as a writer. It’s a fascinating chat and I know you’ll enjoy it.
I also catch up with Otis Scadding, my best friend and professional gardener, in our regular slot. This time we chat about what Otis looks for in a garden when he first meets a new client.
