Jane Perrone is a journalist specialising in plants and gardening. Her work is regularly published in The Guardian, The Financial Times, Gardens Illustrated and Garden Design Journal. Her podcast, On The Ledge, covers the world of houseplants, from cacti and succulents to terrariums and ferns.
In late February 2017 I set up a microphone in my husband’s underwear drawer and recorded the first episode of On The Ledge. More than 170 episodes later, and I’m celebrating the show’s fourth birthday, looking at the episodes that captivated and the plants that enthralled us.
