In the first of the Bloom Fringe series, we chat to Helen James, in her own words: “blogger, baker, gardener, mum”. She is also a world-renowned designer (she designs a very popular range of homewares in Dunnes Stores), presenter of RTÉ’s “Home Of The Year”, and owns the Considered Cafe. Here she chats to us about how important gardening and the outdoor life is to her, and about the big changes she’s made to her life in the past few years. It’s a very insightful interview, full of energy and a great start to the Bloom Fringe series!

The Sodshow meets Joan Mallon and David Williams. Goal Garden, Bloom 2015

On This Week’s Show:

goal garden, bloom 2015

Peter meets with Joan Mallon who studied garden design as a second career. It’s interesting to hear what led her to design a garden at Bloom 2015. She was extremely taken with Goal and the message that they wanted to put out via their garden. It’s very interesting!

It’s not your standard show garden, it certainly attracted an awful lot of interest from visitors to Bloom this year and it was no surprise to the Sodshow team that the Goal Global garden won a Gold Medal.

Also on the show this week is David Williams from Goal Global, who chats about the message that they wanted to convey this year. It’s a great, interesting show, please do tune in!

Peter Donegan chats with Niall Maxwell at Bloom 2015.

Designer of The Pieta House Darkness in Light show garden, that won every single accolade possible scooping Best In Show, Designers and Peoples choice and in case you may be wondering Gold medal; this afternoon the now long time neighbours [just up the road if you will….] and all mates [who doesn’t Peter know at this stage of the game….] chat about the show garden, it’s build, the story behind the scenes and also the why.

Still a show garden, it is a delicate one in a sense. The story however is sadness and tearful in parts and and into the light, extreme happiness and moments of laughter.  For further information and to get in touch with Pieta House, please see below.

Our thanks to the team at Bord Bia for being brilliant and also to our radio show sponsors Greensax. And from all at The Sodshow, very well done Bord Bia and Bloom and much congrats Niall and Pieta House.

And yes…. they did make it for them pints.
