Pictured above L-R: Tina Warner-Keogh, Tamara Bridge, Kate Savill and Tom Warner.

2018 will see designers Tamara Bridge and Kate Savill design their 2nd RHS Chelsea Flower Show garden and on this weeks episode of The Sodshow the duo chat with Peter Donegan about just how that happened, what it means and how they work together.

The Sodshow is available every Friday in Spotify, all good podcast stores and www.sodshow.com

We go a stage further in chatting the difference between this and the BBC Jo Whiley Scent Garden they created the last time, how the picture formulated very differently all the way back to competing at the RHS Young Designer of The Year competition where they first met.

And, if you have a mo, a rate / review in iTunes would be just fan-tastic. Much thanks for listening Xx

Garden Podcast: Charles Dowding

On This Weeks Garden Podcast:

Charlsea Dowding’s latest book, Veg Journal – Expert No-Dig Advice, Month by Month  – published by Frances Lincoln, dropped on Peter Donegan‘s desk about 3 or 4 weeks ago, fresh off the printing press.

A fellow member of the Garden Media Guild, on this weeks episode of the garden podcast Peter and Charles chat pretty much everything that is a cliché, a something you don’t know why you garden that way but you do.

We talk Charles latest book, his popularity, where it all began and of horticultural methods – how views and our knowledge of why we should do things a certain way have changed over the decades and the centuries, though not for everyone.

Garden Podcast: Kate Gould

On this episode:

This year Kate Gould will design at RHS Chelsea Flower Show, the new Royal Ascot Spring Show and also Singapore Garden Festival.

On todays episode of The Sodshow, Kate and Peter Donegan sit down to chat. Usually, I’d say “Peter and Kate sat down to chat about X”, or something relatively specific. But this it transpired, was not one of them. Enjoy.

Garden Podcast: Cathy Rollinson, Hardy Plant Society

On This Weeks Garden Podcast:

Cathy Rollinson is the Chairman of the Hardy Plant Society.

On this episode Cathy chats with Peter Donegan about the criticisms, demise of some and the rise of garden groups and society’s. We get into the Hardy Plant Society, Cathy, why it exists and just what you can expect to get from paying just 17 pound per annum membership – a rediculous amount considering the benefits. But that’s not all…..

Garden Podcast: Paul Hervey Brookes, RHS Chelsea 2018

On This Weeks Garden Podcast:

Paul Hervey Brookes returns not only to The Sodshow but also to RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2018 with his artisan garden sponsored by Viking Cruises.

As Paul describes it, it is a garden inspired by living well and being connected to nature. Inspired by the nordic spa and the special relationship between plants, well being and food.

Though they have worked together before, this garden should prove to be quite different and together Peter Donegan and Paul chat medals and just what they mean, sponsors and the ethos required to build a better garden with medals almost thought of as an added bonus.

Peter and Paul talk life, holding hands with the right person, what it means to be at Chelsea once again and how over the last 10 years not everything that is in the past glistens as maybe it appears now, though with hindsight that might be a little easier to look back on.
