In this week show I'm joined by Clare Ratting on food bro Extraordinaire to talk about her new book, how to grow your dinner without leaving the house, and we also talk about the not issue of racism in horticulture. I answer a question about a crash Sheila of barter whose leaves of suddenly got very small. How Mysterious Just, the warning this show is usually a swear free show, but for one week only and in order to discuss a particular post of Clare's are rated this show as explicit because the F. Word does pop up a few times. So if that mortally offends you, you may wish to skip this episode but otherwise keep listening because clarify stuff to say that you need to hear. Those of you who follow me on social media specifically instagram made me aware that I was having a little bit of a moment this week about the price of sensitive areas, certain sensitive areas I should say. I promise that I was going to say something about the price of rare plants in the podcast I'm not gonNA. Do that this week because I want to give Fu breathing room for my chat with Claritin. But next week I will be devoting a whole episode to talking about Red Lance what is a rare plant, and when does our pursuit of rarity begin to tip over into something that is a little bit ugly and not so good for the house plot industry so I'll be getting into all of that next. If. You've got any thoughts on the matter in the meantime, do drop me a line. Thanks to those of you who've been in touch about last week's leave botany episode about Silicon Doctor Julia Cook out of really interesting email from listener called Dave. He wrote we in the US we could buy silicon pre blended into compost. It comes from Williston night a natural mineral that releases silicon at the right level for absorption I work in research and development of the mineral supplier. We have companies in the UK bringing this to the market, but I can't say who who, interesting. And they've also warned that the liquid silicone products that are used for often in hydroponic systems are he said that they do need to be used with care because they're very concentrated and have a very high Ph have to use them only at the recommended dose and not any higher otherwise might kill your plant and he says, this explains why Mineral Bay supplements are being researched and brought to the market because there are slower release form of silicon. So you're not going to end up overdosing your plot he goes on to say. That there are two natural minerals that do this willis tonight and diatomaceous earth which some of you might be familiar with because sometimes mixed into potting mixes as a way of dealing with pest problems. So there we go. So the couldn't is coming to a house plant supply shop near you by the look of it. I'm really fascinated by that news and I want to hear more. So if else's got an inside track on silicon and specifically who is doing this kind of work in the UK are be interested to hear from you. On with the main attraction this week my interview with Claire Raton on who is Clare She's an organic food grower and she's worked in some amazing places from growing crops for Auto Langas Restaurant Roe v to delivering workshops out London to audiences including schools, community centers, and corporate clients. And you might also have heard her on BBC radio four's Gardeners Question Time that institution here in the UK. She didn't start out growing food as we'll discover in the interview, but she really has called the bug and the brilliant thing about this book is aimed at people don't have a massive country estate to grow their fruit and Veg maybe you've just gotTa windowsill or a balcony or patio or allege to grow on this book will really inspire you to try new crops and pick up some simple things to make things thrive. So if you just been growing houseplants up to now but you fancy trying your hand something from an oyster mushroom to. Delightful purple chilly. Then this is the book for you. In the first half of our chance, we talk about the book and in the second half, we move onto talking about horticulture and racism something that Clare has been actively discussing on social media, which is a brave thing to do because not everyone wants to hear that message and we'll hear how she got that message. Out and the reaction in part two of the interview do go check out the show notes as you listen, there are lots of peaceful leagues that to the things we're talking about. So it's always really worth having a click through to Jane Perot Dot Com and finding those links it really does help you get around a picture of what we're talking.

Fi all by pay pal, and again he tells it in the show notes. Can be a bit of a short. Can you get a sudden burst of sunny days and high temperatures here in the UK, for the last few days it's been getting up to thirty degree Centigrade, which is, she says looking if I can't tell you what that is. Fahrenheit because it's actually off my chart. I'm thinking about ninety degrees. Fahrenheit probably, but much ought doesn't go that high. It does occasionally get this hot in the. UK doesn't happen that often. Often but when it does, we do struggle to cope, because we're not really set up for this kind of heat, and this is a time when we need to be paying extra attention to our house plants, because if you live in a climate where it's regularly getting up into the thirty s then you and your applauds a more acted, but if you're in a climate wet, it isn't the usual practice then. Everyone's undergoing a little bit of shock. So. It's worth checking out your plants checking in with them regularly and making sure that they can make it through this period. Things can account for well. If you've got very hot sunny days. The plants that are in your sunny windows. Maybe I'd to cope in spring in March or April with the amount of light. That's coming in through those windows. Come this periods. And the power and intensity of the sun, and the duration of the sun round the Solstice, the longest day of the year is going to be greater, so is worth having a look at your parents, and just considering some of them might need to be moved a meter or two away from the window, or the whatever the light source may be. That's a skylight, the sun coming through the windows, going to be more powerful at this. This time of year. So think about that unmoved any points before they get the chance to be sunburned. They certainly won't be badly affected by having a few days in a little bit more shade than usual and it major save them from unsightly marks, which could be going Straw yellow or brown patches. Those kind of things can indicate sunburn in mind. Also terrariums can suffer in this really hot weather. Imagine they are like a greenhouse. That is your house, so they can get incredibly heart, and if you've got any shaft of light, the mind becoming through more intense light than they used to, the plants can start to get dangerously hot, so do think about moving terrariums Tutu Cooler locations. Just keeping an eye on what's going on inside, you might need to take a little bit more or perhaps a bit less, but just make sure that they are not turning into a boiling colder that your plants won't appreciate and certainly if you're using the lovely, who must pop technique for propagating cuttings on. Contact from somebody recently, who said what's happening all? My who has popped cuttings just turn into Mersch and I said suspected that the listener had been putting these on really sunny windowsill on the cuttings cutting just cooking, so make sure if you've got a propagation station. Yes, it looks very nice on your windowsill, but think about moving it somewhere out of the sun, because those cuttings will really struggle in this hot weather particularly if they haven't got much of a root.

The has managed it. And it's absolutely gorgeous. I'm going to play the song in food at the end of this episode but first let's hear from Dean about his inspiration for the Choon. My Name's Dean I am into bomb cold biscuit heads in the biscuit just I am singer unequally player and I have written a song about Protection Society now. This isn't something you just come across the thing. That's a great thing for a song. Are you a member or an ex member?

So Yeah and capable of CACTI brilliant and one of the things I love about. This is the way you recite all these Latin names speech as for me as somebody who loves Latin names is make baby. Ridiculously excited takes a certain kind of brain to be able to turn this stuff into a song accompanied. A must say by wonderful video. Which is absolutely amazing. I think he's going to give me a nightmare. Though that video the idea of you guys will turning it slowly turning into CACTI. was brilliant. Brilliant the terrifying. Well when he really in the city so take a life of it so that means for was not lost on me. I have to say having spent much of yesterday. Moving talk between different parts of my house and greenhouse I could I can. I can totally understand that injuries. Yeah a few a few brushes with a couple of things. I should have known better than to to brush past. Yeah that's just. The nature of the beast isn't it? I love is that you really doing capture late in the song the whole ethos and atmosphere of the society in all its eccentric. Brilliant nece about it. Just kind of people are interested so I really enjoy like I'm like I like things like you know people who are just interested in something and they just do it and they find that the people who are interested as well and they just sort of full mclovin society or wherever. They won't do it. It's nice because it just people who have very interested so people we've dumpster. Us or South America to desert dot you look at these. Cacti in their naturally by bringing a slide in for everyone to say about you it's nursing in is a your. I'm sure you have a loyal and passionate fan base all of your songs about CACTI and succulents so what are the kind of topics. Do you cover the songs. I imagine that you're not going to many traditional kind of I love her and she loves me kind of songs not really. It's funny people. Society should write what you look for something if you sell impersonal into into the songs but I do I do about what I know why I'm interested in. Why not. Why not the kind of things that people know we write songs about that was sung about Venus flytrap on the the new album? The caxtons looking at stuff. He's also lyrics without taking from the comedy responsibility newsletter from nineteen to allow. What happens real trouble? That's why we have some real trouble tracking down which issues from we talked to society. We wanted to try to personally written the lyrics from find out who was exactly so it was a bit difficult but Yeah so 'cause I was I was in the kind of response is around. Then I used to below the most pitcher plum with amazing on the. Yeah so it it. It's things I'm interested. Basically this like things in the natural world Although segments that I just just I mean he's me things I think funny. Oh funny ideas you know. I'm not just looking through the This list of song titles from your album thought Porridge. I'm liking the sound of when we will bakers and also British headpiece champion because one of the things that's Talking about had one of the things that you are on your website does say moustache powered two doors which is a reference to your use of brass instruments which I am also delighted by. I hate to pigeon holed music but it do you sort of put yourself in a particular genre difficult. Because I don't think it stunned jumped. Descriptions really scribe us very well so it's not that I want to be an agenda but I think saying specific genre people go. Oh it's going to sound a lot so I suppose it's like a kind of like a kind of psychedelic. Music whole a spouse. If it's so the closest thing I could say even dot no message really children genre what I love about it is. I think it's is kind of the sounds like a terrible cliche but it really is fun for all the family. I can imagine anybody of any age listening to this and watching the video and just totally falling for your eccentric and a delightful way style of doing things which is which certainly certainly captured me. And I'm going to have to go listen to Venus flytrap now because that sounds right up my street. We'll take thank you very much for joining me. I'm GONNA play For my listeners. The end of the episode. So I'm hoping that with loads of extra funds as a result you certainly want me over so thanks very much. Keep Keep what's GONNA be next. I'm just trying to think what other genres of house plants. You could have. He could maybe have a song about about arrowheads. Because that's why listen hear about Swiss cheese plugs. That's that's my top tape. She's patially fucking thing. Yeah Yeah there are a lot more than the people. Just don't have a whole album. That could be a whole album of this.

I'm really fascinated to know how the urban jungle community and the online presence all began. Because really you were in the ground floor of House. Plants really coming back into the four in the last few years. Tell me about this way. This all started. It started quite a few years ago. Indeed in twenty thirteen Eager and I knew each other from from a few years before We met in Paris through mutual blogger. France and We casually chatted about things. We like blogging about on our own blogs and are basically our passion so we both really like to travel and love interior design as well and so we spoke also things that we headed home and we realized. We both had quite a few houseplants at home. That were really lost. So he started to chat about plants and Very early we realize we have to do something with this passion or this interesting houseplants and we decided to start a blog series on her own blocks just to present our plans that we had at home in how we could care them how we style them. What kind of.

"Bonus episode of on the Ledge podcast. I'm your host Jane Perron and I'm going to be interviewing the. UK's chief Plod Health Officer Nicholas Spence. She's a botanist. A plot pathologists and the president didn't purchase society of plant pathology so she really knows her stuff about keeping pests and diseases away from our precious plants. Why interview her now? Well new regulations about plot and passports came into effect in mid December. Twenty nine thousand nine hundred and talking to people in the planck community here in Britain it it seems like there's a lot of confusion about who this impacts and how it all works so I managed to secure an interview with Nikola in which we cover a lot of bases and hopefully hopefully answer all the questions that you have do. Check out the show. Notes that Jane Perot Dot Com for full transcript of the interviews. You can check exactly what Nikola had to say. Jay and also the contact email and website that he mentioned at the end of the interview on the Ledge. PODCAST does have a really international audience. So it's worth saying at this point that if you're outside the U. K. or or indeed Europe then this podcast may not be that relevant to you may still find it fascinating and interesting. But it's made appeal really is to those who are going to be affected by the plot possible regulation. So if that's not your street then do skip onto another episode and if you need due to the show welcome and do check out some of the more than one hundred twenty episodes. I've put out which cover everything from growing herbs on your windowsill to actress gaping and plant swaps to growing house plants from seed. I spoke to Nicholas Spent on thirty first of January twenty twenty which was last Friday as this goes out and we were speaking by phone. The lines pretty good. But there's the occasional wobble so do you bear with me and I do hope this will prove really useful to those of you who are getting getting to grips with plant passports. If you've got any additional questions or comments about the show please drop me an email at on the ledge podcast at gmail.com. Nikola thanks for joining me today. It's a topic that's been causing a lot of conversation around the plot growing world here in the UK. And I. I wanted to start by asking you about this. These new regulations that have came in late last year. Two thousand nine hundred nineteen. What's the rationale between this new deform of plant passports that have been introduced? Well the new pump passport. Regulations widen both the scope of the kinds of plants. CBS which require a plump passport and also the scope of the operators who now must be registered and authorize and. We think that this full allow us to move from a more reactive approach to plant health that we currently have to a more proactive approach enabling us to better tackle pest listen disease threats as they emerge what are the the. But the consumer. That's buying plants in the garden center. Loretta nursery or buying buying things mail order. What will they see in terms of a difference when the be anything to see in terms of a different approach to the plots? They're receiving will the requirement qualm for plant. Passports is now going to be down to retail level So that also captures distance sales on for example Internet trading so that all traders of plums must now be known into the competent authority which is a deaf FRA and we'll have plot health obligations so whether they're nursery landscape her high street retailer or selling online they will have obligations to to be authorized and to keep records so that when a consumer buys applause and they may well notice that now on the plunked or the box walks with the label There may be a plant passport but equally. If in some instances the plants aunts have entered a store with a plan passed on a trolley for example and the consumer just buys one plant. They may not actually see the plant passport so it slot. It depends on the kind of plump that they're buying whether buying it from right at. What are the pests and diseases that you're most worried about what what the big headline grabbing pests and diseases that we concerned about here and trying to limit through this new regulation while the there is a range of pests? Pests Diseases. What consent about we list them all on the UK plot health risk register but essentially for the kind of horticultural all to cultural ornamental? Plants traded were particularly concerned about things like Zainullah fastidious which is a bacterial disease We're we're also concerned about various insect pests such as the Asian longhorn beetle but there are a wide range of pests that were concerned about and one of these. The wording of the plant passports says that this concerns all plants for planting and if I people who said can you ask ask nuclear. What does plants for planting actually mean are we talking about everything that goes in the ground oriented as opposed to produce that might be the plant based but is is intended for the kitchen is that is that the distinction book essentially plants for planting or anything? That's going to be either put in the ground all kept in port an and as essentially as a living plant at rather than For example cut flower Woah. or a cutting of something. That's being used as a hub. So it's really anything that's going to be planted in the in the ground remain. Main plummeted will be replanted oversee cuttings and propagation material things like seed potatoes would also be included. Where did I am partied herbs bright? I've got you that makes sense and one of the other issues that seems to have come up since this legislation came in is the vast numbers of people who are using often using social media coming online. They're not professional nurseries. But they've got a few plants that they're propagating gating and neither swapping or selling. Can you just clarify for me. What does it actually mean in terms of who needs to be registered? I've heard conflicting advice from people. Some people saying well I'm a hobbyist so I don't need to be registered even though I'm selling plots online posting them to people who can you just clarify that point yes so I mean we. We have had several clubs and organizations. Contact October for clarification. So we're still kind of working through the final details but essentially If a hobbyist owning hugest he's making a profit from sales then we think that they should be in scope fo- plant passporting just as in the same way if they're selling cuttings and And so on whereas if there is I know that many clubs and societies aww have a sort of swapping service so you know they might share seeds. They might hsieh material. We feel that Would fall outside light the scope so it's really whether somebody is is essentially making a business out of it making a profit trading for financial benefit Kuffour. You know it's over a greater scale than somebody just kind of swapping giving away clumps a local no club so for those people in that category who are likely to be less jammed up and all this stuff that hopefully the nurseries. He presumably a much more engaged in in in your work. Anyway what do they need to do. Somebody is selling some cuttings off plants online. They need to register and will they be inspected to they have to pay fees. Could you just explain that because that seems to be causing people some confusion so what we do is ask those people to Contact us through the Gulf Dot. UK plant health pages era various sort of online information and a sort of email address to contractors so that they can Notify us of the kind of trade that doing on the wing than we can make a judgment as to whether they need to be registered essentially registering can be done online but authorization means to issue. Plant passports means that we do need a plot. Health ceases specter to tape may make a visit and decide whether or not you know that person meets minimum plant health standards in terms of traceability knowledge about about of the plants that they're trading in and in terms of fees we Do charge a minimum uh-huh fee for an inspection and again that's all set out on the web pages and it's based on a minimum time unit. The fifteen minutes or part thereof. So you know somebody who's a a very small scale prater it should be fairly straightforward and simple simple to do obviously larger operation. It it might take a little bit more time line to do the authorize ation But fees are payable For somebody to be derived to issue possible so I think the key thing is determining whether or not you know the businesses in scope first of of all and then what the cost of the authorisation might be less concerned that this regulation might to kill off this burgeoning trade in online in hobbyist growers. Selling stuff I guess. It's that balance. Between the necessity to injure Joe Plot Health and kind of encouraging people to to get into beeping into plots is a great thing. But actually we've got to be careful here. What would you say to a hobbyist? Grover over who's WHO's a bit intimidated and worried about this whole procedure of registering. And and so on I mean. Is there a likelihood that some people might get in touch and then discover that actually they registered. But they don't actually need to be inspected again I think on a case by case basis we would encourage businesses or traders to get in touch They can speak to somebody from the animal and plant. Hey health agency and find doubt whether they are in scope will not men in terms of is is you know I know some people say well. This is all the burdensome but actually just because you're trading informally doesn't mean your bicycle you'll and indeed we have had examples of where passengers ages ages have been introduced through hobbyists people bringing cuttings not really realizing that the might be a risk. And of course then if you share those with with friends or other hobbyist gardeners this of risks that might spread a historic disease. So it's really important to abide security. Not that everybody who potentially might bringing appliance or move a plant with penalties really understands that they have a responsibility as well as the largest scale traders because together we will need responsibility for managing the risk of introducing spreading pests and diseases indeed and one of the other points that I want to raise about an economic campaign. Even running to deal with people might not have that much interest in blocks at all but who go away on holiday overseas and really have no idea that they're not supposed to be bringing running things back in their suitcase. PLA material is that. Is that something you are your increasing awareness awful trying to campaign against because there must be lots of people falling into that category of comments online on going to this European city and I'm going to violate of house plants and bring them back to the UK. What would you say to those is kind of people will at the moment we have the you plant health regulations which means that Most plants can still be moved within the European Union in passenger baggage but now the new rules state that if you are bringing in plants for planting or any plant material from outside the view that we described as a third country. You can only do that now if you have a fight to solitary certificate so that means that material must have been inspected in the country of origin examined examined. The person disease is deemed to be free of pests and diseases by a competent authority..

Thanks to you you're trio of loveliness thanks also to allison and jade's gem who left lovely reviews views for on the ledge. J Gem says they're enjoying the show because it's nice to have someone to go where others are just as passionate about plants as I am brackets for some reason. I have have not found anyone that wants to obsessively discuss plants all day with me. I know what the heck is that about but anyway that's what on the Ledge is here for to give you that outlet. Thanks very much for those lovely reviews and if you haven't left a review for on the legit I hope you're feeling a slightly guilty feeding right now so crack on and get it's it down and thanks to Kaitlin from Edinburgh who got in touch about my episode with Maya Thomas. That was number one to four and Caitlyn says they were filled with absolute joy by my description of plant glossy. His caitlyn writes my mom's an incredible plant person but I never had the bug growing up. She would always points out plants or walks around the garden and I would always roll my eyes in boredom that is until earlier this year when I unexpectedly fell in love with house plants. Now I see world so differently isn't you're not so much allowed me to develop my own plonk losses and these days. I'm obsessed my plant glasses. Let me see plants and learn more about them everywhere. I go well. I think it can't be long before chain of opticians. who gets me into design plant glasses? How cool would that be won't be like?

If you want to get the whole picture of the way talking about okay you ready. Let's let's go so welcome to the gardening podcast house plan special. My Name's Matthew pottage and the curator of our chest Garden Weasley and. I absolutely love house plants. I think I mentioned him a few times. I'm here before and for very very special one off episode. I'm joined by. I want to call them the Queens of house plants and Swiss Bank from gardeners question time and Jane Perron from on the Ledge. And we're going to have a bit of key cow talking about houseplants so yeah this is the first of its kind. I going to call it a podcast swap. Jane ever to you I can you explain to us about on the ledge and how that's GonNa emerged with. The rich. Has podcast today. Well it's a wonderful opportunity to have our listeners. Listen to a podcast and my podcast is weekly. Pool cost per house plants that I've been making taking since February two thousand seventeen and it's basically just my excuse to talk about house plants because nobody else in my family's interested in God. I just decided to start a podcast to provide an outlet for my conversations and also just as a way of being able to email somebody and say. Did you want to have a chat with me about gives Mary and actually have a reason to do it. which is putting on the podcast? So it's just a personal passion that's turned into a bit of a an ongoing thing thing and I have great from here and he's also become a reunites community of listeners. Around the world just great. It's really really good. And and I mean I see you as a bit of a current trend in house plans now. But I mean you've been stalwart kind of a real champion of house plants for years but you know pulling faces the busiest because I started to grow them when I was very young. And obviously I think I've sort of became known ernest houseplant. Lady tonight because of being a whistle looking of previous glasshouses glasshouse supervisor and then subsequently going onto gardeners world when and Jeff Hamilton was the presenter going up to Rutland where he lived. He really wasn't interested in house and so he was really really happy for me to take that over and I guess that's where I really got the sort of title of House Plot Lady House Plant Queen so we are going to start our journey into house plants. I should do some homework and I can see. You've absolutely follow the requests. We've got some beautiful bits of plant material on the table and some very nice photographs on here. Yeah so can you tell me l.. Can we talk a bit about a plan. That inspires your interest into indoor plants. Hopefully we'll see some images of it or enjoy my one because this is just in the mind brain but the one that I wanted to talk about was in Mali. Doc Surgery as a kid and other if you remember they used to be. This is way back. You use those colored lights and they would let your light with your doctor would lie up would earn. And then you'd be called in you put number up and right next to that. was this huge Swiss cheese. Plan the monster delessio which is so trendy now but this was like back in the day this was late nineteen seventies antes and it was just huge and it was going everywhere and they're rare real roots all over the place and I don't think it probably got watered reported more than once in a blue moon but I just sitting there waiting waiting for my doctor's appointment looking at this plant and going. What is it that I come from? Why is that in here? Not Spark Fascination for me and it took require a few years to get my first Swiss cheese plant but it was something that sparked off that interest in indoor plants. And they seem to you when you do see them are ending waiting rooms James. I remember one in the hospital for my hometown. And because they would normally grow up trees on scaling up any kind of structure. They don't need massive pulse pop studio so they can get enormous plants with a small pot roots everywhere and as long as like a corner Selena to or something. Just keep going. And if they've got the ceiling room the leaves get bigger AK- bigger and bigger and I do wonder what not to do with a lot of people who are buying these plans now. And they're buying them as dinky little two foot tall have any conception of what what they're letting themselves in for if they have this plan long-term because they can get monstrously large which is wonderful testing grace about plants. Though isn't it you get the small cutting or you get the small planet. That's just come in fresh. And it's the character that it forms grows older that really fascinates me Aneka so character for how about you. What was your elementary or inspired? Hold on back in the sixties. When I started to collect house falls at dusk us make me sound very old doesn't it? Most of them came to me. As small pieces of succulents CACTI Pelayo names busy leases from other people's Window Sills All they would hand me plants that they had bought an had nearly died. And that's how will my plants came to me so I would get brought along a picture of the candle handle cactus and you can see where it's called the candle cactus because it SORTA got all these candlelight sections it's the plant I still keep now is not Severi Pucci plant. It grows in the winter and my family along the plant we have and they always get it down at Christmas time from my window sill. Because it's very celebration debray shree it produces little flowers on long stalks to like grandson'll and they turned into dandelions. Who is maybe thirty says to me? We need to get the Dan Dhillon plant down waving stunned lines so it's like a Christmas decoration that has to come down in the middle of winter and joins us in the sitting room for a few weeks peaks than it has to go back upstairs again so it's still grow it that to me. It takes me right back things like the Mexican hat ply. They were the social approach. Things that circulated because we didn't have many places to go and Bali them in a funny sort of way garden centers or mass hadn't been invented back then. It was florist shops and private collections. So trying to cast my mind back to early memory. I spent a lot of time with my grandma. If you had a big collection of Palestinians and I was never as a kid taken by lot's of smelly leaves and all red and pink flowers. She grew them for the flowers. They're just wearing very appealing to me but I do remember this higher shelf in her. Greenhouse with these CACTI on and there's one acti- that particular drawn to I thought completely different from all the others and eventually years down the line when she passed away managed to get hold of this cactus which identified as fellow actors. M Roy I am always reminded me of it wasn't in a very good state was nearly brown all the way up and eventually I lost are still quite young kid at the time but then I came across a few years ago and a garden centre it was just in a mixed cactus trae. I was so delighted to see it again and I thought I will have that for my office window so that work because it was grandma. Got Me into plants and that will just be a little bit of my childhood memory. So I wasn't going to bring on the chew because it's quite fierce thing. There's an image talk show you've seen them before but that lovely red spine and quite a Bluey grey body to it. I prefer succulent CACTI in not into CACTI tableau of masses of smaller spines but something like that with the big fat red spines are quite sparse. I just find that quite fficials things. Yeah ed I mean you only need to like walk into a couple of times and I mean my mom would never want to the in house when I was younger. The grandmas because North People have net curtains everywhere. Of course terrible terrible problems with the nets it stuck on everything so but you know down. South is fine because net..

I I met my Thomas. At the garden. Museums Houseplant Festival last year when she was part of of a panel discussion about plants. Maya is a cook writer and herbology. She's worked in urban kitchen gardens across the UK including the Chelsea visit garden and she runs herbal workshops around the country. You can find online at the modern herbal DOT COM and after hearing speak on you. I'd I love to have a longer chat with my own so I headed down to meet her at her London home before Christmas and we chatted boy. Did we chat the resulting being interview is wide-ranging to say the least we cover everything from plot health to herbs to buy weeds wonderful. We stay quite a long way from house those plants but I heard that all of you will enjoy listening in on a chat between two plenty people. Do check out the show notes as you. Listen at Jane Perot Dot Com. Because there's lots of links in there to the things we talk about for more information about the don't risk it campaign which is a UK government campaign to encourage people not to bring plot material back from overseas either linked to a piece. I wrote about the community. Herb Garden I mentioned in this interview decided to run this whole interview. which is about an hour long in one big chunk so make make yourself a competency settled down and have a listen? I mean herbs her amazing people. So I'm always amazed by how little people understand where things come approach making something and he's got some thing in it and sometimes ought not thinking I don't know where this comes from or how it so how how a- and then it's fascinating to look that stuff up like would it may sound looking at Mason was like wow. That's my mind. I can't believe what macy's he is an auditor. I didn't actually get to the point of looking at where they grow. May so how. It is Louisiana well a lot because it's outsor- nutmeg. So yeah yeah a if you think back to the spice trays and basically a consistent say this theory to my dad. The whole economic system Miss Basically based on the trade of plants. That's what it is last more all traitors being about back in the Medieval Times four Cardamon was the same cost as like a labor is really solid underneath stretches across a across the world doesn't it. I mean cotton in America slavery. I mean we into interesting enough. The Chelsea visit Gods and if you go back they got the original seeds that became like the most grown cotton places like Virginia sent by Chelsea Garden Hike off Oh out to America and it was it it was yeah. So it's it's it's a whole history loans oral history and. I think that it's in the same way that we have become mccombe lake. Saif fakest on how and the providence of our food where it's coming from How is it got a yeah? We're all being slightly more ethical than off on this markets and we WANNA be interacting with juices and how was it growing pesticides you know. I think in the same way we need to be curious about our house plants and things that we're bringing into our home and it's not possible forever thing likely and when not we can't go back in time time and particularly in the K. because we're a country that has been formulated on the fact that we had an empire that we traded in all these places quiet unhealthy way. But I think that having as possible history. It's great that you can come to the K.. And all sorts of foods and have all sorts of people living here. That's amazing it's just being we've all we're all culpable culpable room responsible. And I think just as individuals we have a if we can start to ask questions about and nothing's going to be perfect when all Tonight we're not all going to stop using plastic overnight but if we can start awesome the right questions that's worth deffers. Campaign healthy comes in also spence. Who is chief? It's like chief plant health officer Sir and department director of plants of be health and varieties and see my gosh okay. So she plays she has had I. Twitter handle is something like Plot chief yeah. That's good growth. I liked it with half a chief of plants in the U. K.. Chief of flu we the closest we need that person on you know she de recognized it because we've at least you know we've got a food as it. She's me that it's very important that we're starting to protect the native species like and things like that from diseases and Kinda change. Obviously as our climate was our way being confronted with new diseases all the time and earnings. And if you think about it. It's a logistical nightmare. And it's not just the plants that a that a hosting some of these past six also things. It's like crates the wooden crates that come in they can hold a particular past come in the woods. She said something nothing. Brilliant and you might have to talk to her about this to get it. Specifically for Football Tussle football stadiums that heated from underneath. So you can't dispute is but obviously they have to change the tough by the Iraqi today. You can't despite dot tough just any which way because of the way that it's heated it can actually create a breeding ground to this puffing the particular bacteria in the soil so it has to be disposed of in a very specific way. Okay so so things like that that we wouldn't even think about this tough coming from. And how can we guarantee is I think the interest is this. He's as you say. The situation is complex. There's a lot going on here. And yet I often see quite a blase attitude amongst houseplant. People to to the idea that maybe we should be a little bit careful about where we're getting stuff from often on facebook groups on saying oh I'm going to the Canary Mehran on hold on a minute. Bring back all these things and then people going. Maybe that's not a very good idea and then other people are going to stop being so negative like more not being negative just for the. It's like being negative but actually because actually this is a serious issue that you know and I think there's a lack of this sort of blase attitude possibly based I'm sure on just just a lack of information by people I think it's the DIS something that they've done. I think they had A. They don't risk campaign than maybe some people saw an report was targeted to people that people going away and thinking. Oh what loves to join us at home and not thinking of the consequences of of. Aw that isn't at the moment any legal procedure to stop people coming in with with things like that but there will be nothing can introduce that one of the things that I sort of believe in vehemently with the poor thing botanic gardens in this country and I think thank you know the danger of having something that has essentially become a trend with which is great because anyway people get concussions plants. I think it's really and if they find benefit from that great but the thing with trends is that you can there's a section of people that will then want wasn't a slightly different different. I want something that's slightly more exotic so I'm GonNa take a bit of a risk in trying to get the UN it's not just individuals taking risks. It could be you know shots and things like that to try to get something new in that they can then get their sales up so then they end up taking risks because those those plants are getting in we right and how that being harvested we whether coming from is there legitimate nurseries that breeding these plants. They which is being taken from the wild. We didn't know any of that. And I think you know the reason that we have not the reason we have to turn it gardens but one of the benefits benefits of having botanic gardens is that you can go into a space where they have plants from all over the world. Where they're doing research into those plants the properties they might contain medicines or how they helped to textile trade or something like that and plant collectors from the eighteenth and nineteenth at century bringing? Nice back where you can go you.

"This week. I'm sure you can bear with me and I will be back to normal in the near future did you. What is normal? I ever get this week on talking about how to give your house plants a health check as we had in last week's episode these death months of November Edberg December and January can be very tough on our plants so you need to keep an extra close own. What's going on and in this episode? I'm going to run through some of the checks that I like to do on my plants every so often just to make sure that everything's ticking over a no horrible surprises await me and we'll also be enjoying another meet the listener with listener Nikolovski and catching up with our campaign to get the monster emoji attitude Lavar smartphones Welcome to money patients this week. MILTA- and emily great to have you on board. And if you'd like to become a patron of on the ledge then visit my show notes at Jane Perot Dot Com to find out how thanks to Brooklyn succulents. Who got in touch after the Cuna on finding water for carnivorous plants and other plants that are sensitive to mineral salts? They suggested having a look at the zero water filter which is a joke water. Filter this this system claims to your move ninety nine point six of the dissolved solids in water. which would make it absolutely fine for giving to house plants so this is thumping definitely worth looking at if if you are going through a lot of bottles of distilled water bought from the shop because of course if you buy this yes it is plastic? Hopefully you're going to reuse it many many times I they also claim that the filters can be received so yeah the the zero water jug looks like a good option. And Brooklyn's Oakland's says the filters life is affected by how hard the local water wrist in New York City last month because the water is soft and they also point out the thousand fluoride which and other plants don't like so this is definitely worth a look if you all somebody who's getting through a lot of bottle distilled water it retails in the UK for about sixty pounds as with many things. It's a little bit cheaper in the. US It's hard life being a Brit. You know anyway if anyone has any other suggestions on this broke the deal Kentucky the outlets get without house blood health check well. This may be counterintuitive. But the first thing to do is to start with the port if your plants in a cash pot it's time to brace yourself and get that part out to the cash born till you can see exactly what's going on. I know this can be a pain loss loss applause on high shelves and so on. But this is really the only way you're gonna go tell what's happening so lift out the reports and have a look at the bottom of the cash pot. What whoa you're going to see down there? Worst case scenario you can see a puddle of water that stagnant stinky and horrible. And that's probably a really good sign that that's plant has been allowed to have stagnant water sitting around the roots and unfortunately root rot is quite possible to get rid of that water straight away give the inside of the pot. A good clean out. Good Hygiene is a beautiful thing when it comes to plants the thing you might see if there's not a layer of water the bottom but perhaps just a little bit of dampness isn't tiny insects scurrying around which often sends people into absolute fits of despair. But oftentimes these can be little things called spring tails would you organisms which live in soils and really. They're not going to do your plants any harm. They're usually a bit of a cleanup crew for soil eating decomposing stuff. So don't panic. If you see things scurrying around as your hand lens comes in useful to have a look at the but when you get to the rest of your plant as we'll get onto then you can check the foliage of the plant for any problems and also the roots but we're getting ahead of ourselves. What else might you see the bottom part? Well you need to lift up the pot look at. What's what's happening underneath on the base because the other thing that does happen especially when he broke plants in from outside is that you might find? There's a little we slug hanging about the bottom of the pot that's hitchhiked in so if there's any hitchhikers on the bottom of the pot or at the bottom of the cash then do get rid of them and while you got the in your hands. It's a good idea to test the weight of it. How heavy does it feel now? I've got some two points. Here of socks Frisia stolen for up Maroon breathe PT Z.. which is in technical parts? I've got another sexy Frazier Gingko. This one's called in a plastic pot so obviously the plastic. It does feel a lot lighter than the terra cotta but I can tell from having picks up this Maroon. Bt many times that actually this is a little bit light right now an means it could do with some water whereas the plastic pot is actually a reasonable way. I think that one is OK. And while I'm looking at the outside of this there's a few other things to observe on the terra cotta front. There's a white crust around the edge of this pot and that's from mineral salts where the plant's been watered with talk water probably that Scott Mineral Salts dissolved in it that then cut become lodged in the poorest parts and Leach out through the surface. It's not too much from a problem for this plant. This does get with rain mortar. So this is part of old damage as it were he gives it character. I'd be more worried if I were seeing green slime on the outside of the park which is a sign that the pot has been damper very long time and as Richard produce some algae growing on the surface and that would be telling early meet that the plot was being over watered. So there's a few things to the council on on the outside the one more thing to know. Obviously if I lift up these two pots other roots growing out the bottom and the answer in this case is no. Just be careful as you tip the part that you don't end up with compost all of your lap. But what do you do at this time if if you do find a massive roots coming through. Should you report well. That is a really good question. I think the answer is as is often. The case is it depends and if you applaud maybe a tropical plant. That really isn't going to hit any. Don't see through the winter and he's going to go on growing his absolutely fine to report into was slightly larger part. If something that's kind of gone dormant and putting on any Negro th whatsoever. It'll probably be fine to be left till spring so it's a bit of a judgment call. You do need to report CACTI and succulents over the winter. The best thing to do is either to wait until spring. That's kind of obvious or you can report brought them into completely dry cactus compost so that they avoid getting waterlogged because that is the one thing that catalans. It's absolutely hate over the wintertime right. I'm going to put these back on the window sill one and two and we can much squeaking apologies so we've looked at the pots. What about the surface of the soil? Well things you might see. You might see Olympic white mold which is not the end of the world if you bothered by. Oh you can just scrape up the surface a bit or put up. Put a little bit of a mulch down some clay pellet in the mall could be assigned that the source a little bit damp but not always. He's but a safety policy. Just scraped away what I'd be more concerned about seeing. Is I the Moss or live words. These are both indicator plants that the soil is. He's pretty moist because they exist only where there's a lot of moisture around liver word if you haven't come across it for ill looks like a little sort of green. Sometimes tmz slightly slimy stuff that grows on the tops of parts particularly in nurseries where the plants have been left their own devices for a little while in damp and shady replaces. LIVERWURST IS ABREO fight. which is a group of plants that is linked to mosses and allergies? And you don't really want to see any of these. Brian Lights on the top of your parts. Because it really does mean that conditions are too damn if you have got them scrape move away and then do a careful check on drainage and possibly report if your compost is just to cluggy because most plants growing inside are going to be pretty unhappy in those kind of conditions with the beautiful few exceptions such as plants. If you've got time it really is worth taking the planet out of its parts. You can take a look at the ball reached a Very quite a lot. You see some routes that a bright orange widdly like sense of area reach the snake plant. Most plants will have white roots though of varying thicknesses. And the one thing they shouldn't be smelly or Mucci so have a look at what your roots are doing. If you've got loads of roots growing on the surface of the soil of the top of the pot that can also be a sign that you're watering too little and too often rather than giving the planet re deep doc drink every once in a while net that makes the roots go to service to get that water. But he's not good for the plot. It's much better to water more occasionally let that reborn Develop lower down so that it's less prone to stress when the plot does dry out while he got that route. Ball exposed. Grab yourself a chopstick or Kebab. Sick Hongi all stabby because one of the things that can happen to potting mix overtime is sort of slumps down in the pot and all the air pockets are gone so give the plant a good stab with your chopstick and that way you'll encourage them air pockets of form and loosen up that potting mix and it'll which can benefit lots. Yes you will damage a few routes along on the way but it will be fine. Trust me it'll be absolutely fun. So do that if you're plopped particularly if you're finding your plant is hard to water because the water just runs off that means is just there's two compacted down there so adding some extra aeration will really help save Donnie little stubby bit you can put back in. Its part if you do find a lot of slimy wetness down now now. That really is time to take action. Cuts away anything that's damaged. I'm report in fresh and fairly dry. potting mix and hope for the best is because that is the worst possible thing you can teach your plant. So now you've looked at the pot the roots it's time to move onto.

"Yes on the ledge skipped the Gold Award podcast talent category at the garden calm media awards in Salt Lake City over the weekend safe to say I'm Kobe avenues feels like a real validation of all the hard work. I've put into the podcast in the past two years but it's really all down to you. The listeners who make make this show such a delight to make so thank you everyone right quick. Let's get on with the show for go all lady. Gaga on you and stop all crying this week. Show is a key and a special so he sent me a question. Listen out because I could be about to solve all your problems. I mean maybe all your problems now. I don't know how to reset your iphone or what that strange. Rattling is in your car but if Islam related I'll do my best to help it. Just before we get started a quick shout out to my three new Patriot subscribers this tweak Andrea and Sara who both become legends and Sonya who's become a crazy plot person. Thanks very much to them for supporting the shows with their hard earned Moolah find out how to support on the ledge in many different ways financial and otherwise in my show notes at Jane Perot Dot Com one one of the ways you can support on the legends by leaving a lovely review on your put up of choice which is exactly what the Tango Nerdy did. I won't read out the whole thing because because it is rather long but I particularly loved the line I look forward every week to each new episode and I will continue to be a dedicated listener until my green thumb fools zoff well. Let's hope that doesn't happen. The Tango Nerdy and I mean I can't imagine the circumstances under which that would occur but yeah fingers crossed. Well thumbs crossed post that your thumb stay intact. Were very long time to come so please do follow the tango. Nobody's example and leave me a review on June. Tell your friends ends about the show and Jim. Lee Spread the word about on the ledge. I've heard this week Jane Davis who is founder and director of the reader at cool cool to stones mansion in Liverpool and it's being relaunched as the International Center for shared reading well. I do love a good book so I am fully behind this project and as a big house plant grew herself. Jane is looking to fill the mansion with lots and lots of plants so if you have got any cuttings that you could donate and you happen to be in the UK so they're easy enough to post then I will post some details in the show notes about how you can get your donations of cuttings. Nothing's too green up. The International Center shared reading Do Go and check out. Let's get going on the Cuna and I and Ryan from Chicago in the US wants to know what to do with spent potting mix the kind that you get the result of well aw dead plants. Let's not beat around the very much dead Bush here. This got me wondering this question because I don't have a lot of well. If you see me doing air quotes around the woods spent spent compost that is produced from my house plants so I was wondering where old is used potting mix was coming from and I questioned Brian further and I got a reply back and he's a little bit sheepish era. I guess he said I think you're onto a couple of bad practices. I we have collected a lot of parts and dead plants slots which is the source of most of the excess soil. I have now well as I've said before on the show run. There is no shame to killing houseplants. This is part of your house plant grow a journey. It's okay we all kill plants and we will figure out what to do with that spent compost but Ryan also says that he thinks he's been removing too much soil from the root will when repulsing now this is an interesting one when you're reporting a plant generally speaking unless the putting so that you're using is very wrong for the plant don't then usually leave the ruble pretty much intact you might tease out some of the roots of its particularly rebound just to make sure they aren't going to grow back on themselves again and they're. GonNa spread out into the new potting mix but generally speaking I wouldn't knock all of the compost rather potting mix off the root ball because this is not really an sst to do so however what I would do is make sure that I ever rated that route ball quite vigorously before reported reported. What does that mean well. It means you're getting more air to those roots which may be suffering from compassion because the old potting mixes just come slumped down amount so reintroducing airs important and I would generally do that using a something like a chops steak or depending on the size of the roots depend on the size of the tool abusing anything from a very thin needle up to a chopstick up to a bamboo stick thinking that into the rule to make sure I'm doing. I'm doing poking motion ocean with my hands as you obviously you can't see but anyway you get the idea in does the stick and that brings air into that re- bowl but I wouldn't generally be removing all soul from the root ball unless it was wrong so for example if I bought a cactus or a succulent and realized that it had been put in something very clunky and not very free draining that might make me tap tap tap on the side of potting trae and allow all of that Posey haughty makes the fall off before I reported because I would know that that's going to damage the plants if it keeps surrounding the roots and stopping them from draining properly so in that scenario yes I would end up with that spent compost but otherwise I wouldn't really be generating a lot of used up potting mix when and I'm reporting some glad that I've managed to clear that one up for you Ryan but that still leaves you with the potting mix that is in the dead plants and Ryan was. I was wondering whether this would be okay to put in his tumbler composter and the answer generally speaking is yes. It would be fine and the only time I would have any doubts about this would be if you had applaud. That was incredibly spiny. Lucky CACTUS and it's dead and it's going coming into the tumbler of depending on how hands on you get you might want to avoid that going into a compost bin. The other reason might be if there's as a pest such as vine weevil in that route ball and you just that's probably something that you might want put into a green waste in in or commercial green waste collection of some kind rather than into your own compost heap but most of pets like aphids white fly will be to kill off in an average compost heap. They just won't survive so it's fine to put plants killed by those kind of pests and the associated potting mix. It still attached cashed the plant. Can you be used this potting mix on your house plants well. There's a lot of talk about S- microwaving or putting soil well into the oven to totally kill off any bugs that might be in there. This has been a scorched earth approach. You're killing off good and bad bugs by doing that's all we generally not recommend that unless you're possibly wanting to make up some seed sowing potting mix which is best off being completely stereo so if you are a hundred percent sure that your plant has not died from pest aura disease then yes you can go ahead and reuse the potting mix it. It was was planted in if you want to be on the safe died the compost heap is the way to go but if you are sure that maybe you over-watered your plant and that was what sent it packing then yes you can reuse potting mix unique to revitalize it though make sure that it is well aerated and ideally that you add some nutrients back in from the beginnings. You'll need to start feeding your plot immediately. If it's plotted in something that's already had most of the new shoes taken out of it. You might want to add some per light. if it's more free draining mix you looking for possibly some of Mickey Alight for certain plots that might more moisture moisture around the roots and probably wouldn't use spent compost as one hundred percent of your potting mix. I'd add in some EU houseplant compost and may be cut. Cut It fifty fifty just to make sure that the plant gets the best possible start in life. The absolute worst thing that can happen to your spent potting mix is is it just ends up going into the regular been and off to landfill because that really is a terrible waste.

On the next several long time and is part four. I have some very exciting used. We have Jim nation. I repeat we have Jim nation. So the seats I sewed only a week ago already Jim Nateing, well, at least two of them. So they are Mike paying pews Besson's sub-species Shendi. I have already germinated if you're not familiar with this particular plant, it grows wild in South Africa on rookie out crops, and it's a succulent plant with tiny little hairs on the leaves. That's what the pew Besson's part of the name means, and once it's mature it produces lovely bright pink daisy like flowers, so that's only really look forward to and I've also had some signs of life from my mystery mix of greenhouse and conservatory plants from children seeds. There's a few little tiny ceilings already up on that particular see trae. So I'm waiting now on the rest of my sewing. In fact, I've got lots more sewing to do and you have been extremely busy to Elaine has been posting on the Facebook group about her Djerba, which are now put out into individual cells. We'll be talking a little bit more about picking out shortly and she's got around sixty plant. So that's a good result. Elaine, and she's also got germination on her Cody is earned mixed cacti. Also on the Facebook group, Abby is seeking some advice on how to grow the bat flower, that's tackle Chantray area. This is a plant which looks like something. Well, it's kind of plot that I imagine a vampire gross with these incredible flows that are golfing and talk and dramatic, and we're looking just the kind of thing that I like to grow. So she's been seeing some voice over on the Facebook group and lots of people have been offering that up over on Instagram to dead plums has got some black velvet rose geraniums cody's rainbow. Mix and cactus mix from ferry more seed, and she's delighted by how quickly the cat sees popping up with the aid overheat met, and Andy Shankar who's blunder Royd on Instagram has been growing Ehlo polythene. And I think this is probably one of the most popular on the night show along choices he says, so far they've proven very quick and easy to start from seed, Andy, I'm really wishing that. I'd goes low point for the season because I'm feeling very left out foliage Queen on Instagram has joined the solo welcome. She's decided to go with mini greenhouse parts because he was easy. And she was feeding lazy. I totally understand. She's so in-coming, THEO Ludia and also called align seeds.

Also on the advice front Kelton on the Facebook group is looking for any advice on growing the gown plant JETRO for product. This is one of those lovely called. Sephora plans reef fat stem at the base. So if anyone has any advice or growing this plot from C, please do drop a line to Kelton on the Facebook group Sasha has been going nuts with her seed sowing. She's so everything from Cody to cordy line to the black bat flower already mentioned to Radha macaroni or the China dole and some saved grapefruit and lemon seed. So she's really got her otiose. Oh, long game on well-done Sasha. April has been sewing morning glory. Offensive pans variety Chilton sees and she is very impressed by the seed leaves or Corta leaders of this plod, should they absolutely enormous. She's posted a picture on the Facebook group. She goes, the Frankenstein of seed leaves. That sounds like it's worth grade just to see that not much action on Twitter this year. So come on listeners use the hashtag otiose so on to put up a tweet or two about what your selling this year. Because of course, everyone's on Instagram Facebook and this help spread the word to a slightly different audience, whatever media meal using that otiose Ohel hashtag will help me. Find your post and give it a mention in the show part. For is the final official part of the on the niche so alone in terms of information India pursuits, but I will continue to keep updated with what you're up to. And I'm thinking that maybe we do another recap in a few months to see where everyone's at so please continue to share what you're up to. And now, let's talk about your seedlings, let's presume to start with that. You've got some germination and your seedlings are already up. If you're looking at you see leagues and thinking they're looking a bit pale and little bit tall a little bit wobbly that probably means that not getting enough light. This is the moment where you really need to be maximizing the amount of light a bailable to your seedlings, obviously, the low fi way. To do that is just to move them to your very sunniest window. So if that isn't enough then you need to be looking at grow lights, you can buy really cheap grow lights as we've discussed on the show before from various online sites, and from Kia if you happen to be in the UK and Europe, and these can be positioned pretty close to the seedlings. Unlike big appliance, they do need a lot of lights you can have quite close to the ceiling level, just a few cents above will be absolutely fine. But do keep an eye on your plants and make sure they're not getting too frazzled. Another thing you can do to maximize light is due. But if a deal, I why job with some cardboard and some aluminium foil, or as you call it in the US and elsewhere aluminum foil Serie, I must say here for all clarity. It's aluminium. You're all wrong. It's aluminium. It's got an eye on it. It's albumin Eum. Thank you and rent. So yes, you get your foil. Let's just. Call it for the sake of arguments, and that's wrapped around piece of cardboard, and you can make that into a kind of a trip Tich shape. See go three sides to around the back of your seedling trae behind the lights coming in and that will actually bounce back to your seedlings to actually maximize the light that they can be getting so give that a try. If you're worried they're not getting enough light. If you see links don't look like that they're looking sort of chubby in green and wonderful. Then that's all good. It probably means they all getting enough light. Once they've all germinated. You reckon that germination is is close to three quarters. Then that's the time to start thinking about letting a bit more fresh air into that container by lifting off, the propagator lid or the piece of plastic or glass, or whatever you've had on top to allow some air circulating stroking, though, seedlings every day sounds ludicrous. But stroking, though, seedings everyday will help destroy them. Them up in nature naturally. Seedings would be exposed to a bit of a breeze of that in the process of moving those things does strengthen them. And so you can emulate this by giving them a little very gentle stroke, it also make you feel better. I'm sure so you stroking your seedlings you providing enough light what next. Well, if it's something other than scattering Hewlett's, which tend to sit particularly cacti tend to sit in that trait Sitri for a long time, maybe up to a year, you'll need to prick out your other seedlings long before that because the trae will get overcrowded, and they just won't be enough nutrients or space for those seedlings so pricking out. How do you do it? The main thing is do not lift your ceilings by the stem. Because of course, if any got one stem if you damage your break that it's game over for that seedling. So use those causal Edens seed leaves to lift the seedlings up very carefully all getting. Underneath them with little chopstick or lowly steak or something like that to lift them away and separate them out. And then pop them up individually into either a cell system where you've got lots of little cells in one tray or tiny individual pots, just treat them extremely carefully though because they all very fragile this stage because I've read systems really young and tiny. If you can take with them when you transplant them a good chunk of soil around that little miniature route bowl that will really help them to settle into that new pot. Well, and that's not the last of it because if you've got something like coleus seedlings or maybe the morning glory that we were talking about they will be growing fast and furious. So you need to keep an eye on the author of the points. And as soon as you see routes poking through the bottom, they will need potting onto the next size up. This is the point now, which you realize you do not have enough room for all your seedlings and start to panic and plan on getting a new home. Try not to worry too much. If you can give some away to friends and family, that's always a feel-good factor. Just make sure that you keep the right number for you. That might be one. That might be fifty depends on how much time you've got and your space. You've got a vailable. That's the beauty of toy. Actually because they can't just sit not trae for such a long time. They don't take up a lot of room. Now. Let's discuss what to do if your ceilings are resolutely, not germinating. Well, it very much depends on what kind of savings. They are if you had Kolia seedlings, and you're telling me the month after sewing, there's nothing happening. I would be very much convinced that nothing was going to happen. However, if you've got bigger seeds or seeds that needs certain conditions that it may will be that a month is no time at all. And the just have to be patient. You can't just leave the pop or Trey imposition for as long as it takes. And see what happens you might try putting this trae into the French for few days to see if a bit of cold stratification helps the seeds. Sometimes this is the answer for certain cease to break dormancy and come into life is worth it go if nothing's happened. And you don't know what else to try if they're? Really large seeds were we thinking back to the condo episode. You remember that we were putting the seeds into a plastic zipped bag in a piece of napkin that takes a long time to break that hard outside layer and the sea to start to grow into active life. So if you've got big hard seeds, it could take a long time, my cardboard palm seeds are not yet germinated, but are not too worried about this as I say because I suspect they have a very very hard seed coat. So patients is a really that's the main message here, don't despair, and you know, you've the worst case scenario is nothing germinates and you've lost out on the cost of the packet of seeds, which is probably anything up to one to five pounds or dollars. So really life goes on. And it's not the end of the world. Oh, and by the way, when you are putting those seedlings on you probably don't want to use seed mix but Rover some kind of house blunt mix for young plants because remember the? The seats having mix tends to be very low in nutrients, and now that you through reductive growth, they do actually need more nutrients. I came across a really nice piece from the RHS magazine the garden all about seed sowing and what to do with your seedlings once they've emerged all link to that from the show notes. And it's been really interesting to see that some of you have been trying to grow funds from spores to including abbey who's very excited that her unknown. Fern sports have started to grow. So that's very exciting. And if you want information on how to do this. I'm linking in the show notes to a very interesting piece, which goes into all the detail about how to propagate ferns balls, which is a particularly specialist art not that hard. But you do need to know what you're doing. So if you're thinking of Germany netting, some firms sports do check it out. So that's the so long for twenty nineteen well, and truly kicked off cover more things to say before I go first of all I had review on apple podcasts by somebody could. Noon, moose who wanted to ask about a hardy version of the spider plant, which he saw listed by one of the big nurseries. Now, I am still doing a spider plant special episode some point in the future. I haven't quite got together yet. But I'm not quite sure noon, moose means by a hardy version of the spider plant. So anyone knows what a noon, moose is referring to then please let me know. And if you'd like to leave a review for the podcast on your product of choice, I would be most grapefruit and do you live in the Pacific northwest? Well, if you do then there's a chance to meet up with on the ledge fans coming up on mate, the fourth and fifth organized by the wonderful, sympathy of B and Sasha. They are putting together a wonderful program events over that weekend, including a visit to the Amazon's fears and volunteer park conservatory seats were pink and plot shopping. So join the Facebook group house plump funds on the ledge to find out more about this. Event and do go alone and meet up with other listeners. I am so sad that I won't be there with you guys, but I will be sending some stickers and also recording a special message for those that attend. And I'm sure the event will be an absolute blast. And remember that we all having a UK based on the ledge meet up in September September the twenty first on the twenty second hang on. I'm just gonna get my Dari actually check that. I've given the right things. Yes. I have a paper diary. Yes. I'm living in the post twenty first and twenty second of Ferber. Yes. So this is the British cactus succulent society, meet up in Kent at Lulling stone castle, I'm going to be there. I hope to see there. Please make date in your Dari. More specific details of that as I have them. Well that brings episode ninety two close I'm taking a couple of weeks off for Easter. So there won't be a show on April. The twelfth all the nineteenth. But I'll be back with a new episode on Friday, April, the twenty six keep is peeled though. Because I may be putting out a couple of little extra mini tiny episodes about various Kita GMs in the world of house blunt botany just to help myself with my RHS revision. So do listen up. You never know what little extra mini episode might drop until oh see you on Friday. The twenty six poop long, France. Take care. The music you heard in. This week's episode was roll Jordan roll by the joy drops an instrument the boy called happy day, Connor and O'Malley by Josh would with at music from the heft own banjo orchestra with that Younes whistling Rufus and dill pickles.

I wouldn't be able to do this without you guys. So thank you very much to all of you. And in the very near future. You will be receiving the squeezy digital art work that I promised to my patrons as a celebration of that reaching that one hundred Mark. And I decided that I need to set a new target from one hundred episode. Given how well it's been going ready. So I've been thinking hard about this. And I've decided that I've got to go and be his on this one. So I'm thinking I'm going to try to get two hundred patrons in time for my hundredth episode. That sounds a bit of a scary go, but look at it this way, even if you just pledge a domer- month to on the ledge that will mean the count as one of those patrons. So it really only takes a very few view from my well thousand-strong listenership to actually come forward and decided to donate for us to reach that target everyone who becomes a patron in the run-up to that hundred episode. We'll get a copy of the digital art work. And I will also be scheduling a Facebook live as promised. And also set another reward if I'm honest to make that two hundred Mark who are hope I can do it with your support. I think I can so. If you can just give dollar a month to on the ledge that would be fantastic if you can spare five dollars a month that means you get access to extra stuff. New episodes of an extra leaf go on there roughly twice a month. Sometimes it's a bit of extra interview from niche fee. This got onto the main podcast. Sometimes it's unique interview coming up this week. In addition to the extract from Ruth Casson book will be an interview with Robert Pavlos who is an American horticulturist who likes to burst, the bubble of those very common guard myths that we all see being discussed on the internet. That's going to be a really interesting chat. So the only way you can listen to that interview is if you become a ledge and offering a five dollars or more donation every month. So do you go and check out the show notes at Jane Perot dot com to find out how to get involved. Also tweet out the details if this doesn't sound like something Europe for then. Of course, you can make a one of the nation on codex Fido com as Bobby did recently. Thank you for your donation, Bobby. And if you wanna support the show in a non financial that is very cool with me to tell friends and family about the show mentioning on your favorite Facebook groups and help the spread the word. So we can get even more people listening. So the time has come the on the ledge solo. Hashtag OT also all the way. And in this episode with starting at the very beginning. Where to source you'll see this is a topic which is very relevant to all of us who are going to get involved in the on the ledge so long because it's very easy to get very excited about growing a particular kind of seed go search online, I think we've found a really great source and spend our hard-earned cash on what turns out to be something very much other than what we've ordered. I had from Antony who told me he's already been sewing, lots of Australian plant seeds like Harlem burger hacky at acacia, and he says that also ridiculously I am trying four different species of baobab seed in my office at work. But Anthony's story comes with a warning. He ordered some mixed sitting glycine remembers and dot com. But when the seeds ROY several weeks later, they were large and look suspiciously. Like Pepsi's he says, whereas he knows that sending jesse's tend to be more like dust. So whatever is the God doesn't appear to be what he paid for. I see these stories everywhere of people who've sent off seed from EBay or from some other auction or market site, and they've turned up and to the untrained are they may look like seeds should germinate, but they probably on the seas that you've actually asked for and, unfortunately, this kinda thing is absolutely Roth. So how can you make sure eat dunk fall into this trap? Well, personal recommendations are always absolutely great. And if you're member of house flaunt founds on the ledge their various threads, they're discussing which seed companies are worth a try said do check that out. Do remember if something sounds too good to be true? It probably is. So. All those things that you see where it's an ad saying. Oh, yes. Blue leave coleus. Oh, blue wny's Begonia yet. Yeah. That's not gonna work. It's just doesn't exist and eve did exist. It would be very unlikely that you would be able to buy a packet of said incredible seed for ninety nine cents or ninety nine Pence package, so beware of those kind of things that promise too much second. There are certain countries which have a reputation for a proliferation of these kind of sellers. Of course, they are perfectly legitimate sellers in places like China. But you do have to be careful a make sure that the supply your using is reputable, and how'd you do that? Well, have a look simple things like this feedback results. Have you seen people recommending them on Facebook groups and other forums people who've bought seeds, successfully and grown them? And if they're offering something econ get anywhere else. Then unless they really are come well. Recommended. I would stay well clear. If you come my blog and the house plant buying guides for the UK and North America. They're all lists of seeds applause for both those pages on my blog. Have a look at the show notes for details. If you're a member of any plant societies like, the case Marianne society, the British cactus and succulent society, the African violets society of America. And so on many of these clubs and societies will have see distribution this, which you can join and for another very much money at all you can get access to an amazing array of seeds. This is one of the big boons of being a member. So those are definitely worth checking out. And there are some Facebook groups where people privately offer seed for sale who are specialists in tropical plots or all different kinds of species. So that's another way. Although again, you've got to put your trust in the person that you're buying from to some degree and hope that you're going to get you've actually asked for. If you find a company that you're not quite sure about, but you want to give them a try, you think they might be then he's worth just sending a very small test order for one packet just so you can grow out those seeds and check that their correct? Find out how good their customer services before you lay down a load of cash on a really big order here in the UK. There's quite a few different choices for buying seeds.

"Look a little bit dry compared to those. I have I must have about four or five different different stike hones here. They just really well as sort of wall plants because I've got walls on three sides of my voca ni. They just look really good and grow really well. They're amazing. They're amazing. I will eventually go back into that. But I've just I've been well I've been burned up in frosted. It's just a bit tragic. Right now. Well, pretty much exhausts. My list of questions, Scott is glass. You wanted to tell me anything more about the book who's the book aimed that? Is it just your loyal band of listeners, or is is there any you trying to reach out beyond the natural house. It will appeal to people who like plants nothing can appeal to people who like guys this this. You know, you can hit you can get planted in there. But if you just want to peaches that's perfectly fine too. Nobody's holding that against you. So I think that it's it's not particularly expensive. So it's a nice little an Oslo. It's about ten pounds in the UK ninety nine or something. So as an extra little gift, I think people might sort of throw it in. And I think that people who just think it's funny.

And go to him to to sort of encourage some out of had to grow plants and also a bit A bit of a a jerk. drug which was kind of funny, but I think. Any anyone who likes plants God's will? Will enjoy the book. Yeah. I think seventy great house plug books coming out the minute that three nice to see that. The house of being embraced by the publishing industry. Although I did get told by publisher recently that house plants were overexposed in publishing right now as like, okay. But surely, that's just that's a good thing. But yeah, the pump short is always looking for the new not coming trend as opposed to the established trend. So. Yeah, exactly about so the over a year ago a year and a half ago, I think just about so does take a long time for to guard from being discussed to actually coming out and and being available to buy.

"This week are bringing you popped one of my adventures in the Netherlands now eight my son when I told most going to the Netherlands thought I was going to a place called at the never in Minecraft, which is one of his current obsessions. I had to explain that. No. It's not a virtual world within his XBox. But it's actually a genuine real place. But specifically I was visiting a place not that far from Saddam called our Samir where there are many greenhouses packed with wonderful plants that I wanted to see this week. We'll be hearing about my adventures at the floor. Holland trade show at Alyssa, which is a brilliant enormous gigantic show filled with all kinds of companies promoting their house plants. I went with the joy of plants, which is kind of like the outreach arm of the flower council of Holland promoting Dutch growers of plants just to be. Totally transparent. They paid for my flight and nights hotel room. But they didn't pay me to go along. And of course, they've had absolutely no control over what comes out in this podcast. So it's all my very own unique thoughts, unfiltered by anybody else. I'm sure you'll be delighted to hear. Oh. And you'll also be hearing from my old, buddy. James Wong who was also on the trip. So I've got some audio of us chatting about house plants at the show. Yes, we do sound like two kids in a candy store. I'm afraid to say. So this week I'm going to bring you some of the trends, the plums and the people I met at the show next week. I'll take a look at the nurseries that I visited I'm what I discovered there. Also in this episode answering a really fascinating listen question that had me completely stumped. When I first heard it. So I shared the question with Facebook group members of house plot fans of on the ledge, and as usual came up trumps with lots of our answers. So listen over that a bit later if you happen to live in Europe, then the chances are that many many of the house Vance you own will be grown in Dutch nurseries. Because this really is the center of the house plant growing world in Europe. I guess the equivalent in the US would probably be a lot of the nurseries that exist in places like Florida. Let me start by telling you some of the stranger. Things that I saw at the show these aren't necessarily things you're gonna like or want to buy. But it's just I meeting to see what is being fought up in these growers mines, I living wax. I couldn't quite believe it when I saw this. But it was a doubles E plant is I mean Okocha Sammy folio was Anza bar GM, one of those plants always being described as indestructible, and I guess they were testing that theory to the absolute limits with this plot because it was presented completely bare of soil with Beirut's, except the roots had been dipped in a white woks. Check out my show notes at Jane Perot dot com for a picture of what this looked like the same kind of wax that they put on amaryllis bulbs the assault for the Christmas market. I guess the idea there is to provide something that looks dramatic and therefore doesn't need to be put it any soil and the principle is the same for the doubles e plot the claim. Is that this plot will survive for months and months with no water? Ultimately as somebody who loves their plots. It seems of it sad that this plot is ultimately going to die because it just has no access to any water. I can see how this kind of novelty might draw people in is the argument that we've had before about painted succulents really is this something we want to use as a way of tracking new people into the house trend or is it all to damaging our appreciation of house faults. I guess that's one to discuss at length personally is not something. I'd bide bought. I don't see why it's that much of a problem. If it's going to provide a new avenue to get more people interested in plants along the same vein. There was also make ups now this was more subtle version of the painted succulent..
