Default Native Plant Podcast-Craig Limpach

A podcast worth listening to with some regularity must take a lot of effort and time to produce. I am always afraid that the few I listen to will someday just disappear as is the nature of online content. If you enjoy hearing interviews with people making a difference in the world of native plants and wildlife gardens you will enjoy listening to any of the shows at The Native Plant Podcast.

Craig Limpach and John McGee discuss ecological design and natural processes.

I live in Illinois so there are some online sources very specific to Illinois, like The Illinois Botanizer and UIC extension service, but some podcast and university sites are more widely applicable.
"In Defense of Plants" , "The Native Plant Podcast" and Cornell University bird Id are some I like .



And don't forget .

Looking at MrIloves video....I never knew they took so long to mature and flower.
Thanks for the link. There's quite a few interesting videos that follow!

Thanks for the you tube video.
I have planted Bloodroot from seed.
I was very lucky, Had a good sized patch at my old place, picked the seed at the perfect time. The pods would pop open if you handled them too roughly. I ended up with several hundred seeds. I worked up 2 areas in the woods at my new place. The new place had no bloodroots. The first year I had lots of young plants. This spring will be year number 2. I believe that bloodroot only takes 2 years before blooming. I'll find out in a month or two.

I also transplanted a bunch of mature plants. They did well last year. I'm hoping that I see signs of them spreading. I'll harvest seed from my transplants this year and plant them in other areas of my woods.

I have a few bloodroots here but they hardly spread at all. Perhaps they need more of a humus soil than what we have.
Basically, it's a scantily topped off sandbar along the bay
