1 The Worm that Turned The species with the biggest biomass in any garden is almost certainly the earthworm. These humble denizens of our soil provide essential services by turning over soil and promoting plant growth. Lindsay Turnball, Peter Holland 08 Feb 2021
2 Creative Commons Seeing the Wood for the Trees (Part II) We take a walk around a local park to admire more winter trees and see why conifers win over broadleaved trees as we move further North, but even they have to drop their needles during the winter in the farthest reaches of the Boreal forest. Lindsay Turnball 25 Jan 2021
3 Creative Commons Seeing the Wood for the Trees In winter the bones of the trees are laid bare, giving us a chance to see their skeletons. Join Lindsay as she takes a tour round Wytham Woods in Oxford, showing you how to identify our common native trees from their bark and the shape of their branches. Lindsay Turnball 07 Jan 2021
