The Cut Flower Podcast Season 2 Episode 10: Tulip Podcast with Emily Von Trapp

Herb Podcast from The Cut Flower Podcast

Today I’d like to welcome Emily Von Trapp to this tulip podcast. Besides having the most amazing name in the entire planet, I met Emily when I went to the US in August to the association of specially cut flower growers. Emily presented on tulips and I begged her to give me a place because I wanted to learn how to grow tulips in the winter.

I am now on Emily’s course, which we’ll talk about in this episode. It’s all really exciting. It just shows you what happens when you put yourself out and just go on something. I think there were two of us from the UK. So it was really quite exciting.
