Nick Tew and Shrubby Cinqfoil

We are very excited this episode to introduce our listeners to PhD student Nick Tew who discusses some of the most up-to-date science around what plants are best for pollinators. In the same vein, we look at a wonderful shrub for both pollinators and caterpillars, the stunning Shrubby Cinqfoil or Potentilla fruticosa.

Here are the links to all the organisations, campaigns and events we talked about. Listen and subscribe by clicking one of the links below or play it right here:
