Juliet and Jiling chat about growing medicinal herbs in containers, making your own herbal fertilizer, and preventative garden practices to minimize diseases and pest problems. Juliet shares about her journey founding the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine, some of her “best plant friends,” and three homegrown teas to nourish winter wellness. We conclude with a reflection on kinship from the introduction to The Healing Garden, “When we grow and harvest our own medicine, the remedy is full spectrum— it contains the intangible and unquantifiable medicine of kinship.” 

Find Juliet’s new book The Healing Garden at or at the Healing Garden Gateway.

Juliet Blankespoor is the founder of the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine (an online school serving thousands of students from around the globe) and the author of the bestselling book, The Healing Garden: Cultivating and Handcrafting Herbal Remedies. She’s a bonafide plant geek, with a degree in botany and over 30 years of experience teaching and writing about herbalism, medicine making, and organic herb gardening. Juliet and her family reside in a home overrun with houseplants and books in Asheville, NC.
