Join me as I talk with Sharon, host of the Tree Lady Talks podcast, as we discuss a wondrous seasonal journey through Britain and Ireland’s trees in my new book, The Tree Almanac 2024.

This is a Christmas Tree Special! What is better for the environment, a real or plastic tree? What is your Celtic Tree Zodiac? What terms can we bring back to use? All this, with poetry, science and the history of our Christmas decorations.

Sharon also interviews Christmas tree grower Andrew Ingram from The Tree Barn at Christmas Common, in the Chilterns.
