Bloom and Grow Radio Podcast Directory!

I’ve created the Bloom and Grow Radio Podcast Directory because…. we’ve got a LOT of episodes for you to listen to! As it might be difficult to know where to start when looking down a feed of 100 episodes, I’ve broken down the episode categories into the following: Individual Plant Care, Nerdy Science Breakdowns, Wellness, Planty Business, Seasonal, DIY, Gardening, Lifestyle, Food and People. Each episode number and title is listed below each category. They aren’t linked as I know people listen to the show on many different players.

Make sure to also follow me on instagram @bloomandgrowradio for daily plant care, planty thoughts and behind the scenes and subscribe to the Bloom and Grow Youtube Show for planty instructional videos and tours.

I hope this directory helps you continue to Bloom and Grow!
