Here’s an auditory post. Most of us who are serious about garden and landscape design read Gardens Illustrated, the English garden magazine. Both informative and beautiful, I’ve been reading it since I found my first copy on the newsstand many years ago. I subscribed for years until I figured out it was less expensive to buy each issue than to pay for the additional overseas postage.
This post isn’t about the magazine–it’s about the fabulous podcasts the magazine posts and anyone can download and listen to for free. As I write this I’m listening to (for the second time) Beth Chatto talk about her gardens, life and ecology. The topics are wide ranging and eclectic and they don’t always focus on one person, place or thing. Thes podcasts (available back to 2007) are not only informative they’re incredibly entertaining–take a moment and listen.
