Theresa Talbot, Willow & Herb

Welcome to the Scotland Grows Show, the podcast which celebrates everything that is good in Scottish gardening, as we join gardeners around the country to find out what grows well where they are, and pick up tips and stories along the way.
In this episode, our guest is Theresa Talbot, a boutique florist and garden consultant based in Glasgow. You may also know her as a Scotland Grows magazine columnist where she offers seasonal advice on the best blooms and foliage for your floral arrangements.
Following a successful broadcasting career with the BBC, and being a well-known fiction author, Theresa embarked on a new path, training with some of the best florists in Scotland and the UK, to launch Willow & Herb at the start of lockdown. 
Her passion for sustainable floristry, including blooms from Scottish flower farms as well as from her own plot, means she has cultivated a reputation for natural, rustic style arrangements.
