Designed to revive any weary weeder, Fresh from the Pod is a twice-monthly, advert-free podcast which offers light-hearted and uplifting conversations with gardeners, designers, environmentalists and horticultural influencers.
Other guests featured in the new series include designer and BBC Gardeners’ World presenter Nick Bailey, who discusses his time as head gardener at Chelsea Physic Garden, and Laetitia Maklouf, columnist, blogger, author and gardening’s answer to Nigella Lawson, revealing her glamourous journey in horticulture.
Tamsin commented, 'I am having great fun getting out and about chatting to fascinating and knowledgeable people from all walks of horticultural life, who share a passion for plants and gardens. My favourite thing about gardeners is that they all love to convey their knowledge and enthusiasm with others and Fresh from the Pod allows listeners wherever they are, to join in the conversation, enjoy some valuable insights, tips and have some good fun too.'
