Interview: Helen Bostock and Oregano

We host the head wildlife gardener at the RHS, Helen Bostock, as our guest this week. We chat all about the work behind the scenes on the Plants for Bugs and Plants for Pollinators projects as well as her ongoing work encouraging us all to garden with wildlife in mind. As our native plant of the week, we take a look at chef’s favourite Oregano.
