Our guest on the Gardenerd Tip of the Week Podcast is Wendi Phan of Gardens of Wendiland. Wendi grows herbs and edible plants in tiny spaces and produces videos to share how she does it with her fans.
There’s a lot to learn about unique plants from Wendi. We had a chance to sit down and chat at the Heirloom Expo in September of 2023.
