They say a picture is worth a thousand words. This month on RadioGarden, a podcast of stories at the intersection of people and plants, I talk to three artists who speak for plants through pictures on Botanical Interests seed packets, among other places.
In this half-hour, I’ll demystify the wild world of botanical illustration with Marjorie Leggitt, Susan DiMarchi, and Carolyn Crawford, three of the artists whose work appears front and center of Botanical Interests’ seed packets.

This month’s RadioGarden is sponsored by Botanical Interests, providing gardeners with quality heirloom seeds since 1995. Botanical Interests’ seed packets are known as much for their artwork and information as the seeds themselves. In addition to their web site, you can say hello to our friends at Botanical Interests on Facebook and Twitter, and if you do, be sure to give them a big “Thank you!” for sponsoring RadioGarden!
