3 Gardening Podcasts I’m Loving
The idea of listening to someone talk about gardening may have the appeal of watching paint dry to some. But for me, it’s actually quite therapeutic. I’ve found a few podcasts that I love so far because a good podcast is too good to keep for yourself.
So, what is the appeal? Here’s what I love hearing actually – people describe plants and talk about their personal best practices. Also: British accents. There, I said it. My current favorites are by women with those elegant and queenly accents. I can’t get enough (cue me turning on BritBox).
And here’s a little secret that I have with gardening podcasts and shows: search for shows within the month you’re in. If I’ve not gotten my fill of Gardener’s World or my Sarah Raven podcast, I go into the archives and listen to past May episodes. My garden nerdiness has fully been revealed now – no teasing me!
The thing about Britain that I am learning from afar is that there’s a culture of gardening that permeates the culture. It’s like a universal pastime and value that by contrast, Americans seem to be lacking a bit. It’s no wonder all the pods are from across the pond – the love for plants and nature is warmly felt.
Grow, Cook, Eat, Arrange with Sarah Raven and Arthur Parkinson
I think this podcast is fantastic and would die to create an American version (hint hint). Talking nitty gritty gardening and seasonality, cooking, and also interviews with people in the industry.
Organic Gardening Podcast is fun to listen to and gets very granular. This has been a great inspiration for projects for me and months ago gave me some great info about peat moss.
The Nature and Nourish Podcast is more about slow living, but there’s a heavy dose of gardening. I have a major girl crush on Becky Cole and love how poetic she is about the seasons.
These are a few of my favorites, but I want to hear more! Comment with ANY podcast recommendations that I can check out. Also, if (big IF) I were ever to start a podcast, who should I interview that you find interesting and has some sort of tie to gardening?! I’d LOVE to know!
