Podcast Show 122: Garden Planning the Practical Herbalist Way

Seeds may lie dormant in the ground under the snow but the winter mind of a gardener starts buzzing like a bee hive. The Real Herbalism Radio team are perusing new seed catalogs and scratching plans on graph paper for spring. Garden planning needs to laid out carefully in order to maximize the output of food, herbs and fun from our little pieces of paradise.

With spring fast approaching, we herbalists are already dreaming of planting season. How do we move beyond the old standards, fruits, veggies and a smattering of culinary herbs? How do we get our whole farm thrumming even if we’re urban farmers? Today, we’ll be talking about practical plans for herbal gardening in the city or countryside.

Be sure to visit the Practical Herbalist website for recipes and further information on the herbs discussed in this podcast. Real Herbalism Radio podcast show notes always include a list of links or go to and use the handy search engine at the top of the page.
