Ep. 32 Interview: Dr Abigail Lowe and Windflower


This month we are thrilled to interview Dr Abigail Lowe, Community Science Officer at the Natural History Museum and an expert on plants and their pollinators. We also have a brief clip from the British Trust for Ornithology and a wildlife gardening correspondent too! If that’s not enough, we then look at a spring delight, the charming Windflower or Anemone nemorosa.
