In these two podcasts, Beth Chatto, the English model for gardeners devoted to using the right plant in the right place, to learning about where a plant originates, how it lives in community with other plants, and how to put that knowledge to use in the garden, talks with Alan Titchmarsh in a diverting conversation of a little over an hour. She describes the beginning of her interest in gardening through her husband's obsession with the origins of plants, and how her garden and nursery developed as an outgrowth of that passion. Click here for Part 1, and here for Part 2. You can download copies of the podcasts by right clicking on the links and selecting Save link as from the list (if you're on a PC).
