Faking it with plants (Talking Plants on the Wireless IV)


Rest your eyes and entertain your ears. For six weeks Talking Plants moves to the (Australian) national broadcaster, ABC Radio National, for another summer series.

I'll be back blogging in the first week of February 2016, but until then take a listen to Talking Plants 'the Radio Show', broadcast on ABC RN at 10 am every Saturday from 19 December 2015 to 23 January 2016. 

You can also podcast or stream from the RN website.

Guests this week
Tom Donohue: Managing Director of Bradford Potter, the only Australian manufacturer of silk flowers.
Chris Kooijman: from Royal Grass, manufacturers of artificial turf.
Elaine Musgrove: pictured above in her botanical art studio. For the story behind the In the Garden chat, see my post on the RN homepage (duplicated for your reading pleasure on the other blog, Talking Plants Too).
And regular guest, Jim Fogarty.

What's the song heralding in all the talk? Think fake plastic trees, think Radiohead, and also think Christopher O'Riley doing Radiohead. You get the real thing plus a fake, all in the one show.
