Plant Based Podcast TV sparks gardening joy

The popularity of gardening rocketed during lockdown. Now, as we enter lockdown once again, but this time with winter approaching, the thought of getting outside and gardening might not appeal quite so much.


The chart-topping Plant Based Podcast has the answer with the latest series of Plant Based Podcast TV, helping people continue their love of gardening from the comfort of the sofa. As the cold nights draw in, gardeners can reach for their phone instead of their garden tools.



The YouTube show is a spin-off of the popular The Plant Based Podcast, and is hosted by plant fanatics Michael Perry and Ellen Mary, all aimed at helping people appreciate the importance of plants and nature in our day to day lives. It comes hot off the heels of a shortlisting for The Roy Lancaster TV Broadcast or Podcast of the Year at the Garden Media Guild Awards 2020.


Plant Based Podcast TV, now in its second series, brings entertaining snippets of gardening joy in short episode episodes of around five minutes in length. The content of the show is a mixture of everything and anything plant based. In it, Michael and Ellen step away from the usual interview format of the podcast and instead present engaging and educational content in same the light-hearted way that their podcast listeners love.


Episodes to date have included pun-tastic gardening jokes, how to create an autumn planter and a Halloween themed flower craft lesson. Upcoming episodes include new vegetable varieties, US fall style decorations and Houseplant trends.


Ellen Mary commented: “We’re taking a break from the podcast at the moment, gearing up for series four which will launch early next year but in the meantime, we wanted to keep creating something for people to enjoy. It’s easy watching, with short episodes to help people keep their love of gardening going! There are tips and how-to garden pieces but it’s mainly about celebrating plants and having some fun which is what we all need at the moment!”
