The price of rare plants

"Right. Now it's time to talk about rare plants and when this turned into a ranch, I wanted to be a reasoned argument but I hope that this will give you pause for thought about what's happening in the house blunt world right now, I guess I got really alarmed about plant prices. When applaud the I've been lusting after suddenly went up in price. As many of you know through the podcast I've been looking for a piece of Panteli sensation, a cultivar of tons of area. Correctly Justina As been moved to the dressier genus, the snake plant, I've been looking for. Peace or a plant of this particular offer longtime. Now, for some reason, while they're common in the US, they just aren't that common here in the UK and I haven't found a shop selling them I think couple of people found a plot shop in Poland selling them, but I still do not have one of these plants. So I. Put an Ebay search save out there. So that anytime anyone put one of these plants on Ebay. I. Would know a few months ago the last cutting that I had been watching the last pup that I've been watching when I think he has for about twenty five pounds and I missed out on time because I thought that's a bit expensive. Anyway another pop came up from the same seller I think very recently about two or three weeks ago. I was Kinda getting excited because the price was still quite low are and all watching the countdown and the price was still about ten pounds and I thought. The chance here? How much did it go for? It went for it went for about eighty seven pounds. For a tiny stick of a snake blunt. Thanks to the listeners by the way who offered to send me a piece of their bench Elson session from the US very kind of you. But I don't think it's a good idea given plant health and spread of diseases to be importing individual plants from the US plus. Don't think it's worth it for the air. BYLES. Of course, there are other house plants that are going for much much more. The headline in The New York Post recently was some sucker in New Zealand just spent five thousand dollars on a house plant. There was a variegated rafic for a test drive perma with variation, the basically split relief in half between the regular caller and sort of golden yellow. and. That plot went for eight thousand, one hundred fifty New Zealand dollars on the site trade me nuts about five thousand. Dollars in other words, a lot of money and there is a track record for plants on this trade me site going for a lot. There was a Hoya I think it was a Hoya compactor with the reverse fair Gatien the way for six and a half thousand New Zealand dollars. A before POPs a couple of months before I'm, and of course, we all know about the variegated monster at unsown. With those little holy leaves marked with cream the have also gone for some really interested. High prices recently, this has been building for a while. Now, this trend towards rare or Unicorn House Plaza cost a lot of money but I think that lockdown has exacerbated this desire for plants as lots of people who want to. Live and up their Home Office of got into the House plant thing during lockdown adjust desperate for these very, very rare loans. And I think we've really got to take the long view about this in that planck. Crazies are really nothing you. My first thought is back to the fern craze in the mid eighteen hundreds I wasn't there I'm not quite that old over my children would probably beg to differ. So in the mid eighteen hundreds around the world. There was a firm fever that really took of people and lots of women in particular were going out and bought an ising and looking for funds in the wild and buying. Funds from nursery such as the famous and now defunct lodges of London with the huge glasshouses, and these were really desirable things to own back. Then the talent teradata mania was coined by Sir Charles Kingsley and he wrote your daughter's perhaps I've been seized with the prevailing Tareyton mania and are collecting bind funds with wards cases where into keep them for it's you have to pay and wrangling over unpronounceable names of species which seemed to be different in each new book that they buy till the territory mania seems to you somewhat of a ball. So that might be familiar. Scenario of of wrangling over the names and buying the special equipment, the wards cases, which is just the original server terrariums plots in. So that is an illustration of the fact, this is not a new a new thing. Plunk raises a bit around forever I mean even Coleus those cheapest chips plants that you can buy very very easily are certainly not subject to a premium. These days were at one point something, very new, exciting and expensive. If you check out Dr Catherine, Horwitz Book Potted Histories, you'll find out that a dozen new coleus hybrids sold at auction by the RHS's one, hundred, sixty, eight when for three, hundred, ninety pounds. How much three hundred ninety pounds is worth today about thirty thousand pounds so As I say it's not new and equally even further back in history chilly fever and sixteen thirties same time citrus trees also massive status symbol mainly because you needed an orangerie to keep them in. So. Wild prices for applauds are nothing new

National Collections: You could become the guardian of a major houseplant genus

"You are a regular listener to the show, you will know that I have visited various national collections of house plants for example, the pepperoni Mia Collection of Sallie Williams and Mercy Marci's spider plant collection clarify Tim Komo Zim, but what are these national collections? And what do they do I? Go to press release this week from the charity plot heritage, who runs the National Collection Scheme here in the UK, telling me that they were on the hunt for national collection holders for some missing Genera- an among those missing generate were to that we as houseplant lovers know all about, and that's Hoyer and try to scan tier so I thought I. I would give plant heritage a cool and find out a little bit more about what being national collision holder involves. My name is Vicky Cook and I'm the conservation manager here. At plot heritage I have an audience of global proportions, so lots of people pops all fully aware of what plant heritage in the UK what you do. Can you just give us a little positives through plum heritage plot heritage was founded in the nineteen seventies, and it seems damage to ensure that the incredible diversity of cultivated plot that we have in this country remain available for generations to come and I said. We've got a really strong history in the UK of. The Plant Gardens from from the plant hunters enrolled plant breeders, the Grande Estates, and just the enthusiastic which public we're a nation of. And we've huge diverse garden flora, but there's a you know a mechanism. Otherwise that was realized in the seventy s to stop as losing, and if you know any good plans and one of the delightful things about these national collections that you mentioned is that it means people who live the country who are really passionate about particular species or genus who have a taking care of. Of these plants and recording their collections, and making sure that they stay around forever, which is fantastic, but you don't have all of the different Genera- that we grow in our houses and gardens covered, and this is where we've got. This got this press release the other day from you about your missing Genera and I was very excited. Slash worried to see the two of them are. Generally very much favorites of mine. Can you tell me about what you're doing to try to sort out these missing Genera? And and the trans- county and Hoyer Genera- Jeff Genus in particular, although we've got six hundred and fifty plot collections all around the country that in no way covers all of the different plant groups that we grow in the UK. And the role of the national collections are to to collect more or less all you can of that particular Genus Plant Group documented develop conserve for the future, and and also research to and become an authority on that plot group so. Year we try and identify maybe the top ten most interesting plot groups that we would like to see somebody step forward for and become an actual connection holder for and yeah as you say to, them happened to be hoyer and try discount in tastic I cannot believe that no one has the whole national collection slightly disturbed by this spot, because the temptation to apply is great, but I don't think I've got the skills. What's involved in having a national collection or applying for one so well? The first thing really is to have a passion for your punk rock I think that probably goes. Goes without that question, but then the first thing to do would be to to get in touch ready, and we can give you. Some advice and guidance have to get stopped. It's it might be that you don't have many plans to start with them. We can give you some guidance on how to focus the scope of a connection so some groups a huge, and you might not want to own have space for all of them, but we can give advice by maybe collecting all the cultivars of a particular species within that group for everything that was intr- introduced by certain breeder or person. And then yeah, then the next thing is to start collecting and documenting and making sure that you've got good labeling. Systems and records are in order, and then yeah, you can make an application to have an extra clock election soons easy, but how how many plants are we talking about here? I? mean how many different Hoya species of you identified. That might might come under this hoyer national collection. Is it many well? It's difficult to say because there's about eighteen species and cultivars currently in the rhs plot finder, which is what we use as general. Guide to to what is currently available but I. I've no doubt there are plenty more available with specialists around the country, so it would be interesting to see for of these more tropical plant group. Currently easing cultivation in the UK and what you find out so sometimes people started thinking Oh. This is like a nice small plot report. Collect that, but the more you start digging, the more you realize how much she's out there.

"Lieu plenty people. My name is amy and I am so excited to be a listener. That you're meeting. I grew up in Ohio in the middle of nowhere in the United States but I am living in beautiful chaotic Mexico City for the last year and a half I've been here. Teaching English and accumulating lots and lots of house plants question want. There's a fun and who will your plans are about to burn scape so if there was a fire. This is a really tough question. I think Goodness I would have to choose a little baby. Chevelle area that I got a few months ago from the botanical garden at Guna M- which is the biggest university here in town. They have a program where you can adopt plants that are endangered out in the wild. So I have a various Tosa minor is so cute and fuzzy and the idea is maybe someday if I take really good care of him and maybe propagate new babies they might be planted again out in the wild either that or a golden barrel cactus. Because it's the same and we named him. Pecos bill because Pecos means pokey things get it like the American. You know the legendary figure literature Pecos Bill but PECO's fill pretty proud of that one got to give credit to my husband for that joke question to. What is your favorite episode of my favorite episode of the podcast? I mean it's tough to choose really. I was so excited when I found on the ledge. I listened to most of the catalog and like three days but I really enjoyed number one. Three about houseplants and sustainability specifically talked a lot about Peat Moss. Which is something that I knew nothing about. I'm not brave enough to try my hand at raising carnivorous plants. But I just found it really fascinating. An eye opening up one of three as as my top question. Three which Latin name do you see to impress people? I actually took a few years of Latin in high school. I don't know why the adults in my life let me study Latin instead of something more useful like for example Spanish so I use a lot of Latin names when describing my plants but I think unsurprisingly. I like a lot of people love to say monster era because it sounds like a spell from Harry Potter question fool crush chelation acid metabolism attention. I would say I mean all of the metabolism processes of plants are just fascinating and magical to me but gestation I think is the cooler of the two just based on what I get to experience on a day to day or I should say nate tonight basis. It's really cute that my plants get night. Sweats I didn't really understand what was happening for a few months earlier. This year I to do a lot of googling to figure out what was going on. But it's really fun to think of myself as a amateur amateur amateur biologist and. I think it's really beautiful in the morning. I get great morning Sun through an east facing window and the do drop. Serve the water. That accumulates from Cotija that took place overnight can be really beautiful question five. Would you rather spend two hundred pounds on a variegated monster? All Two hundred pounds on twenty interesting CACTI living in Mexico two hundred pounds will get me a lot more than twenty interesting CACTI so definitely option B. at or no variegated monster of course looks beautiful but I think the more the Merrier has been my philosophy towards house plants..

Welcome to the three of you and thank you for supporting show and thank you to. Caroline for writing a lovely review on Apple. Podcasts telling me that on the ledge is her favourite horticultural podcast well. You have impeccable taste. Caroline thank you so much and I got a lovely message from Laura who sent me a picture of her newly rearranged plant area writing my sister-in-law got me the painting for my birthday this week aptly-named Venus I track so you're going to have to go to the show notes to see this picture. But it's an amazing picture of a Venus flytrap with eyeballs for traps. Laura you just won the house plant. Well that's amazing and you got a great collision plants there as well. So thank you for sending that through. I know won't Venus Trap. Laura you have a great sister. She oversee knows you well. And thanks to Charlie who wanted to respond to the knife episode one. Two three about the reference offer tetris. Burma. Charlie has been really helping me with this. One been experiments on plants at their work which is way above and beyond so. Thank you very much for that Charlie. And what they did was this. They tried getting the plants rother on the dry side. Then giving the plants extra water and monitoring them at every say to see the reaction and Lo and behold. They found that. The plants did develop the same markings that Ashley found on her plant. If you recall Ashley had got in touch to say that. She was finding these darker. Markings on the underside of her Rufford offer. Tetris per believes that's mini monster. And our that is very popular right now. I was wondering if this was normal. I speculated that it was some kind of a Dima in other words some damage being done by over watering a sudden rush of water into the cells causing them to burst so charlie rights I soaked the terra cotta pots at eight ten and twelve and by eight. Pm The leaf had the same markings. And I'll put a picture of the photos that Charlie sent in the show notes and they've awesome co workers if they seen this in any other species and no one had so charlie wants to hear for more view if anyone else has had this issue with rapid oh for tetris. Because looking at the photos they do look exactly the same. As Ashley's I'M GOING TO EXPERIMENT WITH MY PLANT. So if you've got a record offer don't mind it being a bit of a Guinea pig. Then try this same experiment with yours. It doesn't seem to cause any lasting damage in. This may just be the plants way of dealing with that burst of extra water up. Dude let me know if you've got any thoughts on this one it's fascinating to see how different plants react if you listen to episode one to six my joint podcasts. For the rhs gardening podcast. You've heard me talk about the house plant takeover at rhs Garden Wiz League. And I headed down there today to check it out in person and boy was impressed. I was lucky enough to get a tour around the already very busy glasshouse first thing in the morning the horns were already arriving with someone who was really involved in the planning of this incredible installation picture if you will Lost and abandoned Victorian House. That's been overrun by. Its dwellers the houseplants and this just heavily situated within the wonderfully large glasshouse Weasley. There are plants that we know and love as houseplants are going nuts. That's all I can say smashing two pieces all the usual rules of plant display and all the much better for it so without any further. Gee let's get inside that glasshouse. Talamona reform I Nicole House Garden Display House and managing US housing. So you must be pretty exciting right now because houseboats taking over this amazing space yet. We're really really excited to use this face and really encourage people to grow in there. So this is Intelligence plays three emphasize. I really encourage people to do that in those facing play. We know this traditional idea of having a having a she's having flaws in drafting they're not to the and what I love about this already having seen photos and peering through the archway that we're near now is a lot of us fall into track. Just having house plans in ports with the cashcall which is really quite boring. You'll showing off here. What you can do spend more bit more creative finessing going on and we can. Let's let's let's. Let's start moving because I wanted to point out something which is super interesting flaws. Who who it smells. Rookie May Karen fly which is a is pulling data On that right now. I'm going to see if I can Smith. Can I thought I will say to smell managed first thing. I can't get anything that I can smell. And soon as the sun in the morning doctrine it's most pungent good six foot tall and maybe it's very impressive pawn Yeah I look up at Aston. Unlike always one is attracted to upon. And then you can go and check it out exactly to welcome to the welcome to the monastery as we collectively mansion is that. Yeah so this has been a really fun project on our study room where we've got. Cacti playing chess and monster controlling the cat typing says this will be quite easily defined as it wants to copy or inspiration from since I put this on instagram. A few days ago so many people say I am so doing the little will be. Set as as pawns. And then you've got some sort of tool tired of the the king and the Queen looks also and as you say you could do that without too much work and then either side. You got the wonderful. I'm glad it's wrote-off so I can imagine a few people leaning over and trying to get cuttings off these variegated monsters They look like they've survived. Okay so far without too much there i. She's the skies into chess on got certain not rooting medium round to go. And they haven't been denuded people taking things too much so we could see as of yet. Yeah because this is such a desirable pond is one of those which is one coming in on especially these variegated styles nearly the exact same though slightly slightly different and yeah so the and the becoming very often they are indeed they are indeed the prices for these guys off ridiculous. Although I think he's starting to come down as necessary to produce so yeah hopefully I. I keep telling people hang on because the prices are coming down. I also want to talk about this cabinet of delights and it got here. This is a really good idea too because you can go to junk shop and pick up avenue like this last did we did. We went to charity shops. Oh secondhand but shaw. We've really plotted things off. All nations really. Well run wild to want to talk with me. Is the allocation Stingray as we thought but leaves the stingrays and the leaves in autumn. What Bacon so we not one of the little pigeon holes in the Death Knight old on could I guess you could do something about it up for a few months and then bring the changes a bit of fun to to how smokers I think he's also creative way is really is really worked with? Have you had a good reaction from people coming to visit? Have people been doing an orange? Yeah I think I think people really really enjoying it really I come out until the slayer. I find people saying Oh. It's not a good idea looking at their shoes or looking at the clock is like people coming around to other people and actually sharing the making sure that maybe Mrs Anything is one of those flavor. You really have to go around the time when loads of different angles get the appreciation of the display on. You very have attention to detail. Here's what which I love. I love the way the song that it is something about aerial roots of permanent which is kind of like a tapestry soil Same Cool. That's really nice touch to make it really feel like it is a real.

"Laura Porch where you can set up a little bit more but speaking of the Glass House and what you remember what you think we might not do all do we have quite a whacky display coming up. But we're calling the the giant house plant takeover which are temporary house. We are literally building a small house. You build to walk in through through. The front doors walked through the hallway into the living room bedroom kitchen and it will be like the inhabitants left the house years ago and the plant solidly taking over. So the plants Greyhound furniture four post bad which has these living pineapple feels that would be implanted. That'd be the day when I walked through. You got this gallery on one of the walls of all succulent planted up in picture frames. It's so cool. Fund the team or having a lot of fun with a big chessboard in all the chess pieces are actual small CACTI so just to really get people. Further inspired by houseplants and thinking outside the box a little bit. It's not like the old school tier displays the Glass House which I remember the trailing. I've is on the benches and things lined up beautifully in parts of all grown to the same quality. Take we do still do a bit of that fun this great. There's no right or wrong with it. It's just a different way of doing something. This is also a huge stacks fan being lowered into a bath the of the day walk through those of really cool things and is quite lighthearted and that's running through the entire month of February so do check out in the glasshouse also really looking forward to seeing that. I'm going to get all over excited as usual and bounce around looking at I'm very excited and I think it's going to be interesting to see whether you get a different. It's a different type of coming to that because I know when I went to the house. Mark Festival at the Garden Museum last year. It was like a rock concert. There were people queuing for two hours to get into to that event and it really made me realize just how much this current house plant. Trend is just drawing in a whole new generation of people so eh popular docu noticing on local the local bus while I am in full of Carlton Central just down the road and so many people in twenties carrying being fabricated. Rubber Plants Palms 'cause literally armfuls of House plants in an era of Garden Center. It's great and is this House your particular brainchild and up through the Glass House team. Yeah we always. We always have a winter event of some description in Niclas. Mix It up you've done. Tropical could butterflies or a lego sculptures. And this kind of if volved one of the team was talking about having a giant terrarium bit by bit. We've got to this idea of having this house so they've gone from doing these towers for the Christmas displays now into planting picture frames moving baths around thing is really really good fun. So it's one of those things that I think may be an old school. Section of the chest might be quite stuffy and serious but at the same time based evolved so much and we can still have really great horticulture and good houseplants. It can be a bit more tongue in cheek. So that opens on the twenty fifth of January and runs till Lee festive march and the full opening. Times of the glass in the garden can be found on the website. Okay so moving along to plant problems and experts solutions. What are now the current plants? I'm problems bothering your listeners. On both G Q t and on the ledge. ooh Well I think I said earlier about. There's always the question about what do I do about this dead stick which saw but also one of the things that is coming up a lot is. Where do I get this rare plant that everyone's after an I've seen on instagram that I must have another one? You say you can't get it. The can't quite compute that because it's it's the intellectual just click everything tomorrow. Yeah so this lack of understanding sometimes or just awareness of how the the lead times that nurseries are working to. It was the case a few years ago with the Chinese money. Plant the pancake plant. Describe it Pie. pepperoni suddenly went through this exposure of interest people on the show saying that they were paying fifty. US dollars for a little tiny plot now. Everyone has caught up. It's being sold mass-produced places like hi Kieran Trader Joe's in the US which is kind of these mass sellers that demand has been met by the supply but sometimes people can't accept zip a slow growing plant like that until sensation. It's going to take an awfully long time for the supply and demand to be equalized if that makes sense and how about gt on what's also regular house plant conundrum. Mealy bug turns up quite often. You don't always know what it is and they sometimes mistake it. They think they've got something like Willie. Eighth it on their house plants my heart always sinks. Because it's not it's just not an easy solution is sometimes you can prune out quite a lot of the mealy mealy bug infested growth and try and treat the remainder. It's a little bug. Looks like a small. How would you describe as woodlouse razors pinky white color and it surrounds itself with this sort of fuzzy mealy whites material small ones creep three per round? And eventually you see these white blobs on your plants and they're sucking sap and also flicking honeydew onto lower leave so they're beginning to turn black with the growth of so t. mold so it's not a great thing to have and sometimes it's better to just cut your losses and get rid of the infected plants and start again and if you have a really really lovely. The House plant collection in some plants like this leads. I'm interested in very prone to it and you bring in. A new plant is often best to put in quarantine because within a two month period that could actually sprout something nasty like that. That would run through your entire collection. Not such a good tip and mealybugs when people have to wet the pest come from an enormous his chances I had it didn't notice always a very low level and night. You say two months down the line suddenly it once you have is just a menacing in order to get try spraying at. It was some of these sort of less toxic sprays and some of them will work. If you keep at it you have to spray to break down the coaching. And then again to actually kill the bug but the eggs always seem to hatch out and you have to keep watching and looking then you can also also get a biological control which is a sort of lady bird like creature but it's not very efficient. Okay so to rapper. Powerhouse plan special. I I wanted to ask you about future plans. Blue Sky plant thinking so if money or location or rarity or anything and everything everything was available to you. What would your ideal dream plant or plant combination be surely see of Bento Sensation Yesler? Yes I'm I mean. It's it's a difficult one because there's so many options here. I one of the options are thinking of. Have you seen that skyscraper in Italy. I think it's called the Bosco verticality the skyscraper with all the trees on the ballot is one of those with trees everywhere and stuff inside. That wouldn't that be amazing to live in one of those apartments the other option. I think it would just be really modern. Greenhouse or to really modern greenhouses. One is my kind of front of House where right theoretically relaxed with my absolutely tip top house plants and then another one for production. I'm imagining it. Looks like you've ever been to that glasshouse. The Bombay Sapphire Glasshouse US House. I've seen pictures. I'm thinking it might look something like that. I'm thinking to those are more traditional greenhouse for the back of house and then a fancy see one and I could do a flip between the two I was like a whole glasshouse complex yet from my house so that I could go and hide away in. My family. Couldn't find mean gene. Good very good an autistic groin. Yeah but I think we're on the same page well. Having been warned warned about this question and having had three hour train trip hop down eleven I was able to do a little sketch and I didn't know what to sketch. I just thought that my imagination flow so I started off drawing my office as it is which is quite good cleared out and decorated it. Be Quick because it already is like a sort of private of it space outside in the garden in an old wooden building. That's that was tumbling down. A bit sketched the bench. And there's a little Tripod with a huge flow dear Meriem Liam which is a kind of golden polly cody fern. Loads of rise. Omb sticking out from it and then I added a planetarium Steichen phone instead of on the wall and then I moved round and instead of all this sort of rubbish. That's all over the furniture I cleared or less away my mind and I made it museum like with lots of ood food books and shells and skulls of birds and things like that and they were a beautiful column near Goldfish plant. And then I put in the Po thaw sauce. That has the little silvery marks on its leaves conducts a soldier as very in the moment and then I had a kind of A. I don't know a conservatory extension. It was heated and I stuck in their vine so one of those and loads of hoyas in a box of postcards because I collect them and then I had my terrarium. Replanted amounted so there are pictures of knives and forks spoons on long handles ready for me to put plants in and then I drew myself sort of I didn't is. I'm not all because that was a bit weird my face then I stuck a little coronet with air plugs on it around GonNa grow into a little old lady in a slightly improved office with Massey's applets on a big map on the wall. I can see all the countries they come from. Both of those are so creative. They sound like heavenly kind of places of relaxation and gorgeous plants. I was thinking much more low level and I was thinking I really want to get my hands on a very gated fiddly. Fake the other thing. I saw an instagram. If you saw this my all time favourite palm is liquor Wa Grandes which I find impossible because it needs heat and humidity look at the very Gatien policies best. Isn't it amazing. I've goodness why you get hold of it and I better be a nightmare nightmare to keep looking at the leaves of Likud Allah grandest like pleated. Paper almost like pleated. Yeah like an old school pleated skirt skirt and then all these white stray Asians running through it. It's when I saw the house like Mj and it's hard. I mean this was a while ago. It was dude dude. Just GonNa an instagram. In order to head over four thousand likes I sure it's impossible. Probably very happy with one of those so conclusion and looking forward. Where do we think things again with house plants? Do you think you'll be sustained. What do you think he's next all the discussions about environment and just looking king after our planet moving towards set pete free growing houseplants What's what's on the horizon on? I feel that there are so many people getting so passionate about house plants. They are going to really take to them and won't keep growing them because of the fascination element and not just because they're decorative and I also think that as the natural habitats of a lot of the plants are decreasing. We might end up preserving species because they've made successful house plants. There are already examples of that. I think a Kinda catchy screw Sony eilly unfortunately could.

Houseplant Takeover with the RHS Gardening Podcast

"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

"It's an episode of the garden podcast. I sound a little bit croaky up in talking a bit but I hope you're okay. You're not too cokie on We hit the Intro Jingle in the Min- ah just before I do. I gotTA say big. Thank you to CD natural stone to Pala Giles on the very happy crew there in this series of interviews possible talk to You Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the social thought so garden podcast sit and company of Jilin Ricard CIPRIAN crappy. You did actually one of the few people who have done what's very on Jillian Julianne Dan Jillian Ricard Richards Ricard's also of Irish name like Chevron really be in trouble then the garden written at Chelsea. Two thousand seventeen will get to in just a moment for does who maybe don't know who Jalen is. We've got listeners in in Salt Lake City. You are under what gets took this on the subway. That's it yeah or maybe just living in London and Cornwall who are tuning in what who are you. What do you do for. What do you do for a living as juicy question? Okay so for a living designed gardens mostly for people well in the domestic market so peoples back gardens generally for all sorts of schemes. All sorts of things for wildlife gardens might be small town urban gardens and might be a secret garden also different backgrounds generally for people and I like working closely with my clients for that. I enjoy that get to the Chelsea will in a minute but we hear this all all the time. Is Oh my God. That's really coachee tends to do. That's her style every time I you know. It was one of hers immediately because it's got X. diaw one a dam damn or is it now. I like to chop and change elect to do wound tall one small invariably. There's not a copy pinned on to give you a different example like David Harbour Garden. Chelsea and David wouldn't mind me saying that an annuity invariably of David Harbour scoped in the middle of it. If that makes sense absolutely they do because that's what these people but I don't have I. I don't think I'll have a style people. Tell me I have but I can't see it so my mom's always very different because as I said I'd like to work very closely with my clients and clients are the same no spaces the same dictated to by the surrounding countryside location or whether it's buildings or whatever so no I thought I think I have a like geometry. I love geometry and then I'll like softening it up with the natural plants always had a quite a a good I for for space and style and and three so I think that's gonNA works. It's well into its way into design. What very well but I don't think I have a style. I'll be surprised if you could identify me if I showed you five different designs piece of price if you knew what by me. I want to take down a little bit further back. How did you get into to doing what you're doing. Now where you a little I'm such a listeners go at home like Peter Plants airbeds five years of age growing Roger seats and two foot deep trenches getting an entirely wrong and and sort of figuring it out as you went along no actually aw I wish I wish I could come up with a really good story like that but I'm not I was just a goal grew up in Cornwall surrounded by countryside surrounded by sea mostly Rox shapes formations nature. I used to go out pack up a bag of food and just go up a hill for the day and watch the clouds going out across the landscape. Gay promotes the wind blowing through the groceries or whatever so I I wasn't ever really gardner already wasn't no but I think my inspiration mostly it came from my childhood where I grew up in Cornwall. It was a magical place that she was a great place to grow up with really connecting with nature and I'd like to try and bring some of that into the urban settings that we live in. I live in London and most of the gardens are designed London and to try and bring some of that into London. This is a good thing to do. Try and help people connect with nature because that's very grounding very relaxing. I think that people living in cities can really do need to connect back with nature just to ground themselves well. Let's led me onto one way now. My brain is direct share a four year old but I wanted to I don't know what it is at sorry. I've got an itchy nose syndrome and it's just one of them would. When was your first shall. I call it official for a into the horticulture industry so I I was always the probably the frustrated all what is a family actually because I loved arts and I wanted to do arts but my dad thought that that was a terrible idea because I wasn't good enough to be an artist and it's probably true so I went into into the computing world and computing for ten fifteen years or so stopped and had a break for children had three children at that point. I decided that Asha relating waiting to do something more creative so thinking about all the things I loved I thought we'll try garden design and see and just see what's going to be that all sculpture garden design and that she she it took told the boxes so probably twenty years ago I started designing gardens went to college. Got Some qualifications very strong in design principles suppose actually and from twenty years or so I've been designing guns but mostly around my children children were was my priority to bring them up so I sort of did on my work around on school holidays and stuff like that. Do you remember your first garden that you designed and a little bit like the Beatles. Maybe doing sergeant pepper's. This isn't to be disrespectful respectful in any way or even the white album and you look back at me. Du Dir extremes apart but everybody loves them on top. One was of an era unfitted on was leading a woodstock which wasn't around in the sixties or what is perceived or when people closed right in thinking well to be honest the first ones were very much friends from playgrounds and I had to extremes going on at the same time I had somebody who just wanted me to do a little bit of tweaking for their planting in their back garden which was just that was fine. I thought that was great great. I really thought wow you know going to get on the bandwagon here and this is going to be my first propaganda and everything and then at the same time I had another person who's recommended who had this much coach larger garden with a massive level drop which is always challenging as challenging at the best of times that loan when you're only just starting out and so it was doing the two at the same time and that was quite challenging for me and made me realize that the little planting scheme that I thought was going to be the best thing I've ever done was just like really very very simple compared to juggling children and steps and precipices and double changes so I think that that first one I did with changes really kind of set me up thinking how could do you called zone properly and that was the first one in my portfolio. Actually we're going to pause a here because judging has just commenced souls afterguard I garden the level dropped and that was my first purpose when portfolio well somebody who remembers where yeah where are we going to after that they have lost track on that one the judges were literally just on your garden in real time a few minutes ago. I know that experiences like a lot of people listen to this well. No let's get to the garden. I've being involved are part of a team that had done tree. The tree gardens was over it. It was a two and a half tree week builds in South Africa in Cape Town when I saw this having driven Pasta Shipping Containers that were hairdressing salons supermarkets on the scene into the shantytowns it wasn't dot. I wondered Oh my God did she do this justice and therefore. I'm an expert in that area it was more. I appreciate what a show garden. Pardon should be what I've also seen what is over there and so one is allowed to take license in order to produce a carton dot designer can be proud of. I'll give you a funny example example. Just for you listen to the home when the Super Shoes Garden was done in two thousand eighteen. I think spoke to Kenny White about this and he spoke about the brief day gave to designer new. You may turn around and say well. He dated a very good job on behalf of the charity which did or designer did however you might turn around and say well that was more of a show guard and not one but two brief reef still has to be followed up medals assaulted you on my radar to be interviewed yesterday but we couldn't get you for yesterday because you were busy for does or listen. Just explain to me what is comfort. What was the brief update gave you comfort stands for the Campaign for female education they look to supports goals who are really really serve underprivileged in sub. Saharan Africa and they try to keep them in education because that's what makes the difference. I forgot drops out of education then she's ending up in the poverty. Nobody Psycho and it's not she's not going to get out of that. She's going to end up you know with lows kids a husband. That's probably not great and she's just never going to have a nice life and also also the community gets taken down with her. You know they're just permanently struggling struggling for food struggling for existence harbor of death There's not great thing but you keep because education finish her education. She's most likely schedule if she can get a job all still start her own business and that's that's a quote from the case actually in rural Africa they they start their own businesses then she can have a husband as when she wishes she may have children ask when she wishes she has personal choices which is great for that one person but apart apart from that she'll be if she's starting up around business then she'll be employing people locally and she'll be lifting her community out of poverty as well so you know education as it says blackboard hair education changes everything and it's something that I'm very very very very passionate about his. It's just so very unfair. Coast coast just become they could don't reach their potential for the want of education so child to put house put their messaging into the garden on a low budgets. Chits at Chelsea make it real and make it appeal to the public or make it a pill to the media because more comfort native was to raise their profile and you do that through engaging people on media and the metal honestly always secondary. You knew we would get a medal. I didn't ever think we would not get a medal but the medal was never golden wasn't designed around the metal. The garden was designed around comfort's mission comforts work.

"I did lot of sport. I used to love running and skiing in the forest and cycling and just being outside so for me learning math and science even english. I knew that i have to do that but had john. I maybe recreate now as adults that i didn't make so much attention then some of the things like what my teacher said but i think all of that but i have learned as a child azam school children or living in the countryside traveling around around the world living in different countries. It's all have made what i am today so i can't say that if i would have spent more time because for my knowledge which i use now very much in designing gardens or at uni or other other places east they come from my childhood experience and i have been in in forest and just smelling like appears soil or whatever and i know which plants survive those conditions conditions wetland or near the lake and all that and if i would not have been so outgoing child and loving outliving as well. I didn't have bob this experience to have this knowledge. I have hugh continentals things from the books. You have to leave them. You have to have experienced of that year well outside of myself.

I smells like wet socks stat of being sports bike for three weeks you would immediately and i've had conversations climbed to set. I think my son is bad and i'd say smell yeah. What do you think you're crazy. Put it is true. A new count learned up from a book. No you can't no you can't and this is the thing which is there is more and more there is landscape architects. I lecture for them for example and i i quite often asked and that how how many plants you know by heart and they're like oh it's not in. We don't have to know those things then how you can design a park or garden auden. If you don't know what kind of conditions they need hopi daviel crew. You have to know your plans and then you can design gardens and box and on those things so i think if you are not passionate about all aspects of design then you know they will be mistakes. You learned from them. Yes you do but the plants are very important part of your sign. I would say they even sometimes more important than what kind of ties us views on your parts. I would go further and say that a knowledge of plants and see in a space allows you to instinctively close your eyes on unrelated notice writing love song. I agree yeah. I agree yeah. What's next after chelsea. Two thousand nineteen i have been asked asked the right the book so i should start that while research team has been part of a will be off autumn and obviously i have been asked.

It's not love money for one hundred sixty tons of of ship ship now nothing about boats nothing about theater in nothing about metalwork certainly no nothing about navigating it and having bought this thing with my sort of two years savings with my girlfriend. We then told me to move it and it was like oh who are we going to do that going to navigate it down to France and spend a year cutting it to pieces and turning it into a theater. Why why did we do that just for fun because we thought we thought it'd be good crack? We had a great time cruising around France on Europe on a boat with half a dozen actors and actresses playing with Shakespeare to the French in in Japanese and all sorts of everything under the sun happened.

Still I'll bite encouragement from the daughters who also don't WanNa get into trouble with because I have four sisters of my own and I'm in a in a house of females we are we're running with the the buzz the success there is success now what we're doing people like what we do. They acknowledged that we're doing what we're doing his of quality and of Merit so it doesn't seem the right moment to stop taking a foot off the gas. I'm I get a buzz out of every new thing we make. I get a buzz out of it being made efficiently. I get a buzz out of it being made. You know profitably but the most important thing is I get a real buzz out of meeting a client coming up with a concept them getting it and then making it delivering it and then being more than delighted.

They should know because I've been there twenty five years. Yes we should they should know because we've got our name above the garden and yes we should because we've been here people expect to see us but I still find it amazing using that we we work in this little bubble in Oxfordshire creating our pieces.

I'm reminded a distorted up. Paul McCartney told what was it no. I think you told Oprah Winfrey the story at I remember seeing it. Years ago was still in primary school at the time on she said you know you had the option to boil the rights to the Beatles songs back. He said we appreciate you said we were probably a bit. I don't Miss Colas words but was late and even when we were in a bar and Hamburg and we wrote them on the back of a FAG packet.

It's not that it's not the I'm not doing it for not doing it for the grand grand gesture of doing Chelsea show garden so just a wind the clock backup. I'm I had a very checkered career left school. When I was quite young very young underbid of a cloud just scrape through a few whoever levels Thatcher Potter rock climbing instructor I did a bit of BBC camerawork mountaineering travelling theatre on a boat around Europe? The usual career path then started making son dials which we've evolved into sculpture. I still see my job as making P._C.'s full people so I'm creating bits of were artwork for people are never if I'd gone to art college. I would've probably come out and said I'm a sculptor therefore my piece is worth ten thousand twenty thousand fifty thousand pounds. I'm still somebody who sees what I do as almost providing a service. I've got to make something that is as good as I can do. That's got to beguile an entertain an amuse and be glorious to the Observer my client. My client deserves the best I can do so. I don't have I can't have an ego. I've got to be just doing the best I can fall somebody else and that's a legacy of when I started out all those years ago making something and being completely gobsmacked that somebody would pay me for it at the end of the day and I'm still grateful every time somebody buys one of my pieces.

"Think people are doing it for the EGO. It's not a it's not a pop star thing there. There are egos at play but actually the gardening was quite quite sane in that way but what it is is an opportunity to excel and it's an opportunity to really be you know be the very best Chelsea is headed. I do sculptures in installations all over over the world France America the Far East the Middle East they all trying to show the flower shows and they all know that they are the very best twenty or thirty percent of Chelsea new they they acknowledged grudgingly this is this is so far ahead of everybody else that it's it's.

Dad's entirely practical a moron but then entirely imbalanced maybe untutored is a good way to put it or or understands why imaginary people are still real invalid and hugely important even as a grown up to the state. Let's move on from me but not one. I showed it for OB. I'm I mean I was blown away but the fact that the this grownup kid got it on the little not grown up kid got was just unbelievably magical in every child like sense of the world and turned on getting to you in a second but the point I made about it when I had I say analyze it as gardens con be having been wooed or drawn to it first of all which is the primary thing the second thing then is when you take what I do for a living you break break it down and you start to say does it look out of context as in when I walked into my sister's living room.

How utterly amazing that was I well? That's very kind. It was the first big bronze casting whatever dumb up until then I've just been unbending and Ford forging and bending metal but this was cast which meant I was liberated to make shape the whole story of that garden which was brilliant success. We did that on a complete shoestring. I ended up if you know the kind of budgets some of these Chelsea Ozzy Gardens have but we did that on absolute shoestring but it didn't really show we had created we created these layers. It was like a theater but the focal point right at the back was this big two and a half ton bronze. Comes in in the middle of which was the starburst like a piece of pollen under a microscope or an album at its moment of most incredible radiance and it was it was relatively inexpensive expensive was cost aluminium covered twenty-three carat gold and the we would take him by surprise.

So. Yeah. Problem solved that has been emotional. Hoping have the hard stuff done today and leaves me two days to plant the rest of the garden, which feels a bit tight.

But I did wanna do baseball spot getting a little hot stove in. It's been more tepid stove this entire off season and probably won't go complete full burn hot until the two biggest free agent sign. And I'm guessing this is another week that we're not necessarily getting assigning hated talk some hot stove when it's Adam course, hall of fame balloting because we'll find out this week who's going to be enshrined. At least by the major league. Baseball Writers Association. This week one of the best in the business for Bleacher report be columnist Scott Miller. How are you? Scotty. Jodi, how 'bout yourself tonight? Good. Appreciate your checking it now. I pimp you and about five rather colleagues, you know, the likes of Rosenthal and past ten and all knee and Nightingale and the like. None of you guys have been able to figure out manny's mystery team yet what who's this mystery team by now you guys would have this figured out. Why not? You would think so you would think so I wonder if you call me a skeptic. I'm always sceptical whenever I hear mystery team. The only time I ever believe in the mystery team is when the mystery team actually steps up and signs they guy because otherwise I rarely believe in the mystery teams. I look at mystery teams is they met have an agent Sebastian. Misery. To try to scare the teams who are interested into signing has got I I would tend to agree and I'm saying with tongue somewhat implanted in cheek go. If we go back, if you I'll tell you what when when the Colorado Rockies actually signed Mike Hampton years ago for young kids out there. My campaign was a very good pitcher for the New York area for for New York. Mets watch other teams Mets and Rockies. We're trying to sign him. He signed her Colorado. I Colorado was pretty good Mr. team back then. But yeah, you don't see too many mystery teams most of the time after all the talking is done these guys ended up signing in a spot where you kind of anticipated all along and the better even better part of the Mike Hampton story was after the fact yes asking why he decided to go to Colorado, they better school systems in Colorado. And they do a New York had nothing to do with the fact that the Rockies put like twenty five or thirty million dollars on a table than any other team. But better school systems is why Mr. Hampton ended up in Colorado. Yeah. Right. That was classic. You're exactly right back. At the press conferences at the winter meetings. And the thing I still remember that at some funny because the bowel retired former New York Times national baseball commerce RHS he was he at that point. He was already an older writer. He was a crusty acerbic cynical writer. I know a lot of us are that way. But very really was he's like a guy like if you dropped a cliche cynical journalists in movie berry would be the guy he was at that press conference, and obviously he had vested interests because he works in New York Times, he was a New Yorker do yorker through and through. He just could not. Let that go is hilarious. He asked about seven follow up questions in the press conference to Mike Hampton, just hammering away at at what what do you mean? New York schools are better Denver than what what are you talking about New Hampton to give some ridiculous answer because we all knew it was about money, and then very a follow up. There'd be a follow up like on. Tell me go back to the schools. You know, he just about seven questions Raleigh. It was really really comical watching have to try to dance around that one. And the funny thing about it is I got to know my Hampton a little bit over the years, one of the nicest guy wanna meet and underrated one of the best hitting pitchers I've ever seen. So even though I'm gonna pimp my camping because that was a crock that he was trying to put past the national media that day about school systems. He was doing a money grab. What'd you perfectly? Why? He was right. Just say they get victimized by more mo-, which one are you guys? It started down twenty five million four. But that's all news new news, another well kept secret trade. DJ LeMay you signs with the Yankees the first I heard of that was about a half an hour before became a vigil. They was going to be a Yankee who do we give credit to for that DJ LeMay or the Yankees? Yeah. That's a that's a, you know, now now you could say maybe in that negotiation the Yankees, maybe where true mystery team because you're right now that nobody saw that one coming. But yeah, I it's interesting the thing that that I like about that signing Jody is is I know a lot of people mashing are like look why the heck aren't the Yankees signing man Machado or Bryce Harper. The two big ones the thing. And it, you know, obviously Machado would look great in Yankee uniform would help them, blah, blah, blah. Okay. Whatever happens. I it doesn't look like the Yankees are gonna sign Machado in assuming. They don't. It's like. Okay. Well, what would they break? I'll tell you what. My major branch is. He is a contact hitter. That is what I thought the Yankees were missing last year. I two mild heart too much on my predictions because like most people coming out of spring training predictions. Usually are very off target. But last year coming out of spring training. I had the Red Sox number one in that division Yankees. Number two. And my reasoning was the the Red Sox. I thought we were going to put the ball in play a lot more like they're pitching a little better too. But the lineup. Well, everybody's talking about Giancarlo Stanton. Joining Aaron judge and Gary Sanchez, and yes, it was gonna be impressive. But there were a ton of strikeouts in that lineup DJ Lamaze. You is a move to address that eliminate some of the strikeouts in the lineup at a contact hitter added on bass guy, that's what the Yankees need. I think to go round the rich. I'm not saying here's the answer. But they need some guys like that. And that is one move that. I think will help allow them to take around at the.

"Lisa hack who made sure that everyone could hear and be heard and thanks to Darrow Spagnolo at the RHS and all of the RHS staff for welcoming us to the RHS holes for the show. Now, I think we've just got time for a Q and A to slip in here at the end. And this one comes from listener and wear them who you may remember from our conservatory episode and wrote to me because she's having a problem with her conservative. Windows because they have a filter for UVA on them. And she believes this is causing her plots to suffer when she takes them out to nursery, they perk up almost immediately. So she's moving them in and out all the time, which is a drag and she's wondering if there were any plausible thrive in these conditions, and what she can do about it. So I phoned Leslie Haluk who's our expert horticulturists from Texas in the US who appeared in our grow lights episode to find out the ins and outs of windows, and UVA and filters and all that stuff. Well, it's interesting. I I have known many who have built beautiful glass greenhouses and conservatories, and they're sort of a natural assumption that plants are going to autumn attic lease thrive inside a greenhouse or conservatory because that's the visual. That's been created for us. Right. But but you are essentially changing the environment. When you put a plant behind glass inside an enclosed glass greenhouse or conservatory in. Glass itself, without any type of film or treatment is going to block a certain amount of your national light volume that moves into your space..
