Bloom and Grow Radio
Summary: Got Houseplants? Like houseplants but continue to kill them? Interested in growing you own herbs or veggies? Developing your "green thumb" and looking to expand your plant care knowledge? Bloom and Grow Radio is here to help! Host Maria Failla, a "plant killer turned plant lady" interviews different "Plant People" and experts to source houseplant care tips, stories and lessons to help our community of "plant friends".
