Podcast: Bee-Friendly Gardens with Kate Frey

Kate Frey is an accomplished gardener. She earned awards from the Chelsea Flower Show. She co-authored The American Horticultural Society’s Best Gardening Book of 2017. And she tended an organic farm for a Saudi Prince for two years. Needless to say, I was dying to interview her for the Gardenerd Tip of the Week Podcast.

    Hi, I am trying to get in touch with Kate Frey.
    I worked with her and her partner Ben on the Fetzer gardens at the Chelsea Flower show in London some years ago.
    I have tried a couple of times to get in touch but for whatever reason I never received a reply.
    Could you forward my details onto her in the hope she will be able to contact me.
    Many thanks
    Colin Smith
