  • In this episode, Michael and Ellen chat to Lee, AKA the Skinny Jean Gardener, about his love of sharing gardening with kids. Lee used to be an electrician but discovered a love of plants, becoming the ‘cool kid’ on the gardening scene!

    He has set up a vegetable garden at Jimmy Doherty’s farm, worked with Jamie Oliver and Alan Titchmarsh and appeared on Blue Peter! He combines kids’ entertainment and education together at his shows which he tours round schools and festival - all while sporting his glittery jacket! Over lockdown, he released his book ‘How to get kids gardening’ and has been inundated with messages from people who have discovered the endless perks of getting kids out in the garden.

    They discuss how lockdown has helped families reconnect with plants and the best ways to grow edible plants at home – in the garden, on the patio or on a windowsill. Lee explains how to set up mini allotments with washing up bowls and how to use buckets to make frog ponds. There’s even a special appearance from the true star of Skinny Jean Gardening, Lees’ daughter, Olive!

    Plus Ellen and Michael discuss their childhood memories from the WI to the sound of rain on the shed roof.

  • Every wondered what a Plant Geek’s plant collection is like?! This episode of The Plant Based Podcast kicks off with Michael showing Ellen around his new home, giving a tour of his extensive houseplant collection. They then interview Greg Bourke, the Curator and Manager of the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden in Australia.

    Greg started his working life as an electrician but has worked in horticulture and conservation at the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden for nine years now. Greg explains why the Blue Mountains are blue, and they talk about the incredible variety of plants at the Botanic Garden, including peonies the size of Greg’s head, even in winter. Greg describes what it was like at the garden during the wildfires, when they saw 70 metre flames and they opened the garden as a refuge for local residents.

    In part two, Greg tells Ellen and Michael about his lifelong fascination with carnivorous plants and jokes that he loves them more than his family! He has a phenomenal potted collection of over 10,000 plants, 90% of which are carnivorous.

    Greg shares his passion for getting kids into conservation through introducing them to edible and carnivorous plants that they find captivating. They round off the episode with Greg’s three easy tips for listeners who want to grow carnivorous plants at home.

  • In this episode of the Plant Based Podcast, Ellen and Michael chat to Merryn Chilcott, Garment Technologist & Product Developer at BAM clothing. BAM create clever clothing from bamboo and celebrate all things plant-based in the clothing world. The enthusiasm for bamboo at BAM is infectious- the founder of the company has even been known to pole vault with it!

    Merryn explains the brilliance of bamboo and why it’s so perfect for clothing – it’s versatile, incredibly soft and a more sustainable option in today’s throwaway clothing society. It’s a great plant-based alternative to synthetic workout clothing and has similar sweat-wicking properties. Aside from clothing, bamboo has plenty of advantages as a crop too – just perhaps not in your garden (as Ellen discovered the hard way!)

    RHS Wisley is loved by gardeners worldwide and is visited by 1.2 million people each year. The gardens are diverse with different planting and gardening styles at every turn.

No mean feat for Matthew to be in charge of!

    Matthew reveals how hard work and commitment helped him work his way up the Wisley ranks from student to Curator, and he chats about the amazing support and passion within the gardening community that he’s witnessed through the years.

    In 240 acres of stunning, ever-changing gardens how can you pick a favourite area? For Matthew its easy. The conifers – a plant that Matthew thinks is misunderstood and gets a bad press. Conifers might not be the conventional favourite but Matthew is a big fanatic and believes every garden should have one.

  • Plants AND food – what could be a better combo?

    allplants unites both of these and brings them together in delicious, easy and convenient plant-based meals that can be delivered frozen to your door.

    In this mouth-watering episode of The Plant Based Podcast, Michael and Ellen meet Alex Petrides, one of the founders of allplants, and Joey O'Hare, the senior development chef who is responsible for creating all the tasty recipes for allplants’ meals.

    In just three years, allplants has grown from two brothers delivering its meals using London buses for transport to having a team of 100 people making 5000 meals a day. It’s a true testament to the popularity of plant based lifestyles and demonstrates that more and more people are recognising the virtues of a vegan diet!

    Alex and Joey reveal how allplants meals are so much more than ready meals. Firstly, they are far more nutritious. They are handmade, chef prepared meals that aren’t mass produced and packed with salt. They are created by a team of experts who spend a long time developing the flavours and dishes to make sure they are delicious in their own right, and not just as a vegan alternative.

    In the episode, they discuss their favourite meals from the range, their plans for making plant based meals even more convenient in the future, as well as revealing what they think to meat substitutes entering the market.

  • Natural Grower is an incredible liquid fertiliser – made by plants for plants. So it makes them the perfect partner for the Plant Based Podcast!

    Charlotte, one of the founders of the company, discusses how Natural Grower all started on a family farm in Leicestershire. The farm was once a dairy unit before diversifying into arable crops. As part of their renewable revolution, Charlotte and her husband Richard invested in an anaerobic digester that is fed with maize grown on the farm. A by-product from the digestor is a nutrient-rich organic fertiliser with seriously impressive results – and so Natural Grower was born!

    After using the fertiliser on their crops, they saw the amazing results first-hand so the next step was sharing it with the public and getting it out to gardeners.

    The product is approved by the Vegan Society and in the episode Charlotte runs through the process of getting that approval and the requirements that the product and process has to meet. As it is made from plants it avoids any residual chemicals that may be found in compost or manure, so is an amazing fertiliser for veganic gardens!

    Later in the episode, we hear from fans of the podcast who have sent in their organic and veganic gardening tips so tune in to pick up some handy pointers!

  • *Virtual Chelsea Special episode*

    This extra-special episode of the Plant Based Podcast delves behind the scenes of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and features Sue Biggs, Director General of the RHS, and Jill Otway, who is the Plant Committee Manager.

    The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic means that, along with so many other events, all RHS shows this summer have sadly been cancelled. Most notably the Chelsea Flower Show, which had to be cancelled for the first time since the Second World War.

    Sue discusses the weight of the responsibility of having to make the decision of cancelling the show, despite know the impact it will have on the horticultural world. She reveals that it’s the hardest thing she’s had to do in her time at the RHS, but that the interests of public safety had, of course, to come first.

    Excitingly, the show must go on! Soon after the cancellation, the RHS announced that Virtual Chelsea would take place instead. In the subsequent eight weeks, teams across the RHS have united and worked around the clock to arrange a fantastic line up. We’ll be able to nosey around gardens of big horticultural names and celebrities, as well as watching Q&As and how-to videos from growers, designers and nurseries.

    It all starts on Monday 18th May 2020 where the online content will be available exclusively to RHS members - just like the first day of the real show is.

    In the second half of the episode, Michael chats with Jill Otway, who is responsible for organising the incredible Plant of the Year awards at Chelsea. Winning Plant of the Year can have a huge impact on a plant’s sales, so it is a highly coveted title. Jill explains the rigorous process for how all the new plants at the show are whittled down to just one deemed worthy of the title, as well as revealing exactly what the judges are looking for.

    They look back at previous winners and how this year, for the first time, the RHS will be celebrating the Plant of the Decade! You can cast your vote and pick your favourite winner from the past ten shows at the RHS website. Jill had always planned for Plant of the Decade to take place this year, and for it be voted for by the public so it lent itself perfectly to the new online format.

  • “Plants are a great equaliser. A geranium is a geranium, no matter where in the world you are, or what you are experiencing”

    Lalage Snow is an award-winning freelance photojournalist, writer and filmmaker who has experienced life in some of the most hostile and war-torn places on the planet. Her book, “War Gardens” explores gardens tended to by those caught up in conflict around the world and shows how gardening can bring peace in times of conflict and in the most extreme places.

    Lalage, Michael and Ellen chat about how gardening takes you out of the present, puts you in the future and gives you a sense of hope – quite fitting for an episode recorded during the coronavirus pandemic.

    In her book, Lalage uses photography and the domesticity of a garden setting to divert from the horrors of a war zone. She believes that gardening can provide common ground in isolation. In this powerful episode of The Plant Based Podcast, she discusses how people garden in different ways, for different reasons, across different conflicts. She explains how in Ukraine people garden for self-sufficiency out of necessity, with imports from China and Russia being cut off and supermarkets shutting; how in Gaza urban density means gardening brings peace and a sense of returning to what previous generations did; and how in Afghanistan having to garden is second nature.
