Peter and Eugene know each other since they were about 17 years young…. and on this part 1 of a 2 part interview, take a listen as they go all the way back to the log roll epidemic that took Ireland by storm and discuss modern day landscaping and their careers in the Irish horticulture industry.

Our thanks to Ciara Conville of Two Spots Café for being lovely.

On This Weeks Radio Show:

Peter Donegan talks to James Wong. Ethnobotanist James was at UCC with head honcho there Eoin Lettice to talk about horticulture. And though we chat a little about this, conversation changed and took a direction of its own. Not to be missed and quite entertaining as only horticulture and The Sodshow should be.

The Sodshow meets Amy Cooney

On this week’s show:

peter donegan, amy cooneyKicking off 2015 is a show not recommending all of the things you could be doing in your garden, but instead one you might listen to over a mug of coffee and think yes, that might just make my garden just a little bit more beautiful and for the better.

Today Peter Donegan chats with artist Amy Cooney about the how why and what it takes to become an artist of the outdoor type and what it is like to work, painting in the great outdoors.

The Sodshow meets Mary Minnock of Soil Renew Ireland

On this week’s show:

mary minnock

Peter Donegan talks to Mary Minnock of Soil Renew Ireland, about how her life journey brought her to working with soil renewal products. So what are soil renewal products? Mary explains it better than I could.

Soil Renew is a combination of organic plant matter and an ecosystem of microorganisms which creates humus in the soil. It will continue to improve the quality of soil over time. It is in pellet form and should be applied on the surface of the soil once a year. It is easy to use and should not be dug into the soil.

Very interesting. I can see where we’d use it!

The Sodshow Talks About The Rain

On This Week’s Show:

IMG_4850

Peter and Brian have a grand natter about the water, the rain, how it’s affecting gardens nationally. Peter has been working on a project over the past number of weeks and the heavy rain has seriously impacted his ability to work. It’s refreshing to hear the lads chatting together. No interviews this week, just the pair of them shooting the breeze. It’s light, it’s refreshing and yes, it’s an Irish Garden Radio Show talking about the weather. How’s that for a national stereotype?

Peter has some interesting comments about how garden design has changed due to the more extreme weather that Ireland has been experiencing and some planting recommendations.

As for the Sodshow team, Brian is doing his best to stay dry, Peter has won the wettest t-shirt in Ireland contest (no joking) and I’m (Caitríona) wringing my gardening gear out. The top image is our new “hall feature” borne out of necessity!

The very appropriate song of the week:
