The rise of podcasts has made its way to the garden community and we couldn’t be more excited about it! No better way to spend that drive home or that long workout session than by listening to people talk about plants! These are a few podcasts that we have taken a liking to and we think you should consider giving them a listen!
Maria is the NYC based Host and creator of the Bloom and Grow Radio podcast. As a musical theater performer and a self proclaimed “former succulent killer turned crazy plant lady”, she offers a fun and energetic outlook on houseplants. When Maria got the opportunity to join Cats on Broadway, she decided to quite literally put down some roots by both moving with her boyfriend into their first apartment together and by trying to grow a few herb plants. What began as a few plants, turned into a collection and the Bloom and Grow Radio show was born after Maria realized the lack of a houseplant podcast!
Kevin Espiritu started the website www.epicgardening.com in 2013, as a result of being unable to find high quality information on growing plants. The mission of Epic Gardening is to help 10,000,000 people around the world learn how to grow plants. Epic Gardening is on it’s way to meet that goal with the help of the Epic Gardening Podcast which focuses on one garden topic per episode with an average episode length of only 3-5 minutes. From hydroponics, to aquaponics, to just good ole plant problems, no topic on gardening is spared!
The Joe Gardener Show is a podcast that explores all topics regarding gardening! Lead by television host Joe Lamp’l, the show touches on subjects such as organic pest control, to small space garden design, to making your own soil. Joe’s passion for gardening began when he was young, growing up in Miami, Florida. From growing mango trees to rose gardens, he couldn’t get enough of all the botanical opportunities out there. After college he went on to host the DIY Network show, Fresh From the Garden. After over 100 episodes, he decided to start a new chapter in his life. In 2010, Joe created and produced the Growing a Greener World show, which is now in it’s 9th season! The Joe Gardener Show podcast is another medium, where Joe’s passion has taken center stage and it’s infectious!
Indoor Gardening is the subject that takes the spotlight in the On the Ledge podcast, created and hosted by freelance writer Jane Perrone.

With her podcast she interviews a variety of other figures in the community and explores ways to cultivate a healthy, houseplant collection.
