Garden Podcast: Ian Thwaites, British Cactus Succulent Society

On This Weeks Garden Podcast:

Ian Thwaites is passionate about the Cacti and Succulents and a stalwart of The British Cactus an Succulent Society.

Honestly, I didn’t know this plant society existed until leaving the Garden Media Guild awards 2017. There was a copy of their magazine in my bag, which is crazy and considering I know Ian as long as I’m a GMG member.

That, led me to put out a question (see bottom) on plant and garden society’s, perceptions held, why some plant society’s fail and, equally succeed. The response was surprisng, passionately spoken and by people of all genres. I felt I should do something or at least ask those questions.

And so on this episode Peter Donegan and fellow GMG member, friend and photographer Ian chat all of those things and all of those why questions that bounce around in Peter’s head.

For those who may not be aware, Red Butte Gardens are a botanical garden, arboretum and amphitheatre run by the University of Utah. The gardens are about 100 acres of botanical gardens and several miles of hiking trails.

That story is most probably better told by The Salt Lake Tribune.

Garden Podcast: Woolcott and Smith, RHS Chelsea 2017

On This Weeks Garden Podcast:

Garden designers Adam Woolcott and Jon Smith won Gold Medal and the Peoples Choice award at RHS Chelsea 2017 for The World Horse Welfare Garden.

Before that medal was awarded Peter Donegan sat down with Walcott and Smith, at a picnic table no less, to talk this, the garden build, their practice and a long spanning successful career of show garden building. We also talk falling out together – for the right reason, falling in love, the pitfalls and the very highs of RHS Chelsea and just how they are so damn good at what it is they do.
