This podcast makes gardening for this newbie feel much less overwhelming. Even if I can’t have my dream garden yet, or if the weather is inclement for getting outside, I feel like Joe and his guests, and all their expertise, still bring the garden to me. Can’t wait to get caught up!

What a fantastic podcast! The information is presented to audiences at all skill levels and Joe has such a great, down to earth personality - each episode flies by. I have enjoyed getting my ‘garden geek’ on and learning the science behind so many aspects of gardening. Great guests and Joe is an...Read full review »

Too much geek. Too little fun and not enough real gardening information. Has just become a vehicle for boring topics and guests, but if you want the type of material that used to be in this podcast or “Growing a Greener World”, Joe will sell it to you at exorbitant price points.

I like the guests Joe has on the show .Joe does a wonderful job asking the questions we may be thinking ourselves . The topics are in keeping with my curiosity. I like that Joe shares his failure and success so I don’t feel so bad when I fail or make mistakes. I look forward to Thursday knowing...Read full review »

As a beginning gardener, Joe has kept me company in my backyard through many mistakes. My first year gardening, I made all the mistakes: I planned nothing, missed spring seed starting entirely, sprayed my whole yard with pesticides, fertilized everything with high nitrogen miracle grow, sprayed...Read full review »
hbarclay328 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/07/23
I used to learn from the show, but now it is so much of Joe plugging the products that sponsor him, and his own courses that cost $$$. There’s also no accountability. Apparently a product he has promoted for years had a persistent herbicide in it, but he never owned up to this and apologized to...Read full review »
Tanjala632 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/11/23
A gardening podcast that covers a very wide range of topics. Sometimes I wish they were covered more deeply, but he has guests have written a book or books on the topics. I have a topic suggestion: phytoremediation. A member of our family bought an acre that was basically used as a garbage...Read full review »

Joe has one of the best podcasts about home gardening—period. I am never disappointed when I hear the words “Geek Alert!” These are some of the best episodes with incredible information about the cutting edge of horticulture. I listen once, and then I listen again and take notes! I love it!...Read full review »

Engaging host, but the show needs better editing, and he could work on his interview skills. Good information!
Ms Lanie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/06/23
This was a one hour plug to spend money on the real info. What a shame
vfdfhjnvty via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/01/23
At first, I was a bit skeptical about this podcast, as I assumed Joe was more “TV guy” than “garden teacher.” Wow, was I wrong. Joe is without question the best garden teacher I have found, and his knowledge of gardening is both broad and deep. Some episodes focus on simpler “how to” topics,...Read full review »
Thank you for daily motivation via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/25/23
I agree with others who enjoy the podcast because of the subject matter, the host’s style and manner of presentation, and the quality of the guests on the program. I love most of the podcast. Only one aspect of the podcast turns me off and it’s the host’s appeal for reviews at the end of the...Read full review »
Katdaddy 50 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/21/23
Joe is so easy to learn from. So many people teach like they are above the students whereas Joe teaches like a friend. His podcast is easy to listen to and really informative. Growing a greener world is the best show (PBS) and his classes are worth the time and money. I wholly recommend this...Read full review »
Lloyd (Swamper in Okefenokee) via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/14/23
Joe keeps up to date on the latest gardening techniques for creating a healthy garden. He goes beyond organic and into regenerative. His year in review podcast is a timesaver as he shares all his best information in that episode.
Earthvillage via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/14/23
The show is great and really is informative on a lot of levels! But I wish Joe would shorten up the long talk in the beginning. Introduce the person and let’s get to hearing them.

I can listen to you and your guests talk all day. Not only can I learn, more importantly, you let the sunshine in and make me laugh Thanks for the Ecological horticulture podcast. New, and well communicated and add in the PHS interview
Paris Creek via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/24/22
I love this show but this podcast was not only an infomercial but an odd choice. Make no mistake, growing hydroponically is not organic and can never be. Plants are grown with chemicals; it’s the only way to get nutrients. Joe should change the name of his show if this is his new direction.
Tedde Von Alippe via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/22/22
I found this podcast when I searched for organic gardening podcasts. This was the first one that came up so I decided to listen and if I didn’t like it, I would move on to whatever was next on the list. I’m still listening and I never moved on. I’ve been gardening for almost 30 years and growing...Read full review »

Thanks so much for the information. I use raised beds. When I first sent off soil samples I had to change my request to Container media analysis. Watering for me is always tricky. I have a better understanding after listening to this podcast. Thanks, Lucinda L
Lucinda L via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/25/22
Don’t let the TV show host moniker fool you. Joe is the best long form podcast about the latest knowledge and innovation in gardening and sustainable agricultural practices. The best thing about Joe isn’t even his deep, constantly evolving knowledge of plants and ecosystems - it is his...Read full review »

I’ve gotten hooked on British garden shows and they’ve taught me a lot. However I was so pleased to come across your podcast after listening to another good American podcast: Gardenerd. I’ve seen you on YouTube but didn’t know of your podcast! It’s nice to hear more localized advice. I’m a...Read full review »

Another excellent conversation about nematodes! I’ve followed Suzanne professionally for some years, and she does a great job breaking down a complex subject for the home gardening audience.

I’ve gardened my whole life, but it wasn’t until I started listening to the Joe Gardener show that I really fell in love with it all over again. It sparked all the curiosities and passion I had under the surface, and now I’m more confident and more excited to try all the things. I appreciate the...Read full review »

I started listening to joe’s podcast while working on a 10x20 foot community garden plot in Anchorage, Alaska. I had no idea what I was doing! Joe and his expert guests (especially Lee Reich) helped steer me in the right direction. Now, my wife and I enjoy fresh cut veggies and flowers every...Read full review »

Joe’s episodes are my encyclopedia of the best way to grow my garden. Even the sponsors he endorses are a source of great information Thanks Joe and crew!!

I listen every week and always get a takeaway to use. Sometimes I even listen while gardening. Thank you, Joe

Love all your shows! I only turn on the TV on Saturday to watch Growing a Greener World, but it disappeared on PBS recently (I am in Cedar Rapids Iowa). So I have not turned my TV on in over a month. I quit paying for cable when your DIY show ended. I finally figured out how to listen to...Read full review »

Joe, I can’t thank you enough for the gardening education I got from listening to your podcast over the last two years.

I love all the native plant content but it’s missing a big piece! These landscapes were and often still are managed by Indigenous peoples. I would love to see more inclusion of the millenia of knowledge and experience of these communities in these conversations about better gardening practises.
notthatkhalid via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 07/11/22
I just love all the information you and the interviewees share in these podcasts! Probably the most important thing I’ve learned is that all the clean up we’ve been trained to do all these years does more harm than good. Leaving the plant and tree debris actually improves the soil and provides...Read full review »

I think gardening is intimidating, but I feel like Joe makes it approachable and fun! This podcast is an asset to any gardener or would-be gardener out there!

... have been so inspiring. I also do a weekly gardening podcast and though it concentrates on ornamental gardening, sustainability is a big part time of my message.

Kudos to Joe for bringing us Abra Lee. What an uplifting and thorough ride through the history of Blacks and their amazing contributions to our collective history of gardening. I look forward to reading her new book, Conquer the Soil, due out this fall 2022!! Great job, Joe!

Growing up with our neighbor Jody, and his family in Miami, FL was great. Who knew he would grow up to love gardening, and be a star. Knowing his lovely parents I can see why he has succeeded.

I’ve always been the type to need to know why. I’ve been asking why since I can remember, much to my parent’s exhaustion.
