Listen to our ‘An interview with…’ series of podcasts to find out more about the horticulturists working in public gardens, what led them to become professional horticulturists, the plants they can’t live without and what they enjoy most about their jobs and gardens.

With thanks to our creative advisor, Mari Rustan, for updated format and improved programming, and to Bruce Langridge and Will Ritchie of National Botanic Garden of Wales for the original question format and podcast idea. Thank you to all our contributors, interviewees and interviewers.

Current interviews are being conducted by Rebecca Slack and Piers Horry so get in touch with PlantNetwork if you would like to feature in an upcoming podcast.

Rupert and Don are two of our longest-standing trustees, leaving us at our AGM in April 2024, with a total of more than 22 years of service to PlantNetwork between them. We dive in to find out their fondest memories, what they have done for PlantNetwork and how their time as trustees has enhanced their careers.
