I'm up to 160+ episodes, the jury is in. I'm my well have worked on over 900 lawns, done 25,000+ visits, BUT, I still have a lot to learn, so I'm doing this podcast to tell a story of growing and the days that come and go.
5ish-minutes a day on lawn care, gardening, business or whatever’s yanked my starter motor. No guests. No ads. No apologies.
The podcast is the the first cut of whatever I’m thinking.
To be crystal clear – this is me thinking out loud, putting things together, thinking stuff through, making observations and making mistakes. That means it’s more for my benefit than yours … but I’ve come to think there is something genuinely useful in that, so that ok.

The podcast back story
In 2004, April 19th to be exact I started All Gardening, I had a big idea, things went brilliantly until 2008, the financial crisis kicked in. I had to change things, and as I did I had to leave ideas and dream behind.
But I left a lot behind?
So in 2021 some may years later I started to think I should really dust off my old ambitions.
So I thought I'd share my thinking.
Push something out into the world, every day. Some idea. Some thought. Something.
The length didn’t matter, the important thing was the discipline.
Every. Single. Day.
The start of the podcast
It started with video and soon switched to the podcast. 5-10 minutes of me talking about business, story, or lawn care. It’s a place for my brain to settle, library and laboratory.
But most of all … it keeps me thinking growing. Here’s a cross-section:
- 61: Growing a global community
- 63: The All Gardening Cafe, a place everyone knows your name.
- 72: Green is a magic colour.
- 10: The sound of silence.
- 64: The eternally hopeful gardener, a book by the All Gardening Cafe.
- 14: Love, Love, Love, Lawn Love.
- 118: The man who planted lawns.
- 68: My frosts congeal the rivers in their flow
- 125: Embrace uncertainty
- 74: I cut my lawn and I think it liked it!
