New podcast launch – Fresh from the Pod

If you like quirky gardening tales, tips and inspiration, then a new podcast series ‘Fresh from the Pod‘ produced by the gardening app Candide, will definitely find favour.

The podcast is hosted by Tamsin Westhorpe, who has over 25 years experience in the gardening and horticulture industry. Tamsin will be using her experience and contacts to bring us twice-monthly advert-free podcasts during which she will be meeting fascinating people from across the fields of environmentalism, conservation, gardening and garden-related industries.

In the first episode, Tamsin discusses socks, topless scything and the emotional journey of gardening with designer, plantsman and presenter, Chris Beardshaw (pictured below).

Other guests Tamsin has lined up include BBC Gardeners’ World presenter Nick Bailey, who discusses his time as head gardener at the Chelsea Physic Garden and Laetitia Maklouf, columnist, blogger, author and gardening’s answer to Nigella Lawson.

Tamsin comments: “I am having great fun getting out and about chatting to fascinating and knowledgeable people from all walks of horticultural life, who share a passion for plants and gardens. My favourite thing about gardeners is that they all love to convey their knowledge and enthusiasm with others and Fresh from the Pod allows listeners wherever they are, to join in the conversation, enjoy some valuable insights, tips and have some good fun too.”

Gardening App, Candide, launched last year and is fast becoming one of the most useful free gardening apps. The app features the latest news, exclusive audio tours and details of a growing list of gardens to visit around the UK.

Fresh from the Pod‘ is designed to revive any weary weeder with light-hearted and uplifting conversations with a wide range of horticultural influencers.

Fresh from the Pod‘ gardening adventures are available from Candide Gardening’s website – – and available on podcast platforms (Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Buzzsprout among others).
