Episode 103: houseplants and sustainability part one - peat-free

We’re all in no doubt that our houseplants are good for us, but are they good for the environment? This episode is the start of an occasional series looking at houseplants and sustainability: I’m starting by looking at peat use - can we find a viable alternative to this non-renewable resource? I talk to Sean Higgs, who's been growing carnivorous plants peat-free for many years. And I answer a question about the aerial roots on a monster Anthurium.
