364 – Botany in a Day Review – Part 4

In this podcast, Paul and Neil Bertando continue on their review of Botany in a Day by Thomas Elpel.

This time, they focus on the Magnolia and Witch Hazel Subclass. Since the guys are more interested in the edible and botanical plants and not the ornamental they move over the Magnolia class quickly.

Neil and Paul discuss elms, mulberrys (which is a particular favorite of Neil’s), hemp, stinging nettles, and the uses of each in a permaculture and homestead situation. They talk at length about how great hops are and the amazingness of nettles and walnuts.
