Flowerpot Podcast – the one with artist Caroline Vitzthum

Bruce Langridge

Bruce Langridge discusses how artists can help Botanic Garden visitors create an emotional connection with plants.

Austrian artist Caroline Vitzthum talks about how she is being inspired by her study of Sphagnum mosses in the Garden’s herbarium as well as how this has led to her research on peatland conservation across the UK, Northern, and Central European countries.

The episode ends with a piece of music by John Howes based on the DNA barcode of the Welsh Poppy.
