Earlier this year The Plant Based Podcast launched and instantly rocketed to the top of the iTunes charts. Following that success, it is returning for a second series.
The show was launched by Michael Perry and Ellen Mary, two prolific gardening writers, bloggers and presenters with strong social media followings, to celebrate a love of plants. In each episode of the podcast they meet someone with a true passion for plants. In series 2 they will be exploring plant milks, medicinal cannabis, cut flowers and aquascaping among many other topics – all plant based!
The second series launched on Sunday 28th July with two episodes. One featuring Peter Beales Roses and the other with Emma Mitchell, an expert in the benefits of nature and wellbeing. Episodes will then be released fortnightly on Sundays for the rest of the series.
For series 2 the show has joined forces with Vegepod, the Australian manufacturer of innovative raised garden beds which feature a unique cover to boost plant productivity and protect from pests.
Michael Perry commented: “Launching the podcast was a bit of an unknown for us, it was something we’d been talking about doing for a long time and we launched it as a bit of fun really – we had no idea it would be so popular. Plant based lifestyles and a focus on the benefits of the natural world, and what we can each do to work with nature, have been so topical recently and we want to celebrate this. We’ve got a lot planned for series 2 and can’t wait for people to hear it all!”
Alex Allen, Marketing Director of Vegepod UK, said: “We loved the first series of the Plant Based Podcast so jumped when the chance to be involved with series two, and to work with Michael and Ellen, arose. They have the same ethos of us so it’s amazing to be working together, we all want to celebrate gardening but being a bit different. It’s not all about how-to guides and what to grow when. For all of us, gardening is about having fun and celebrating growing and the amazing rewards that can bring.”
