The last time we met was in Cork, about 11.20pm at the end of a hotel lobby with 2 pints of guinness. This time however we are not in the Peoples Republic of Cork, but Dublin and former Sodshow garden podcast guest James Wong is it seems about to become yet another sell out.
Hat tip to Natalie McGettigan of The RHS Ireland for sending on the info and poster.
James Wong will speak on ‘Grow for Flavour’, at the Talbot Hotel, (formerly known as the Stillorgan Park Hotel) Stillorgan on Wednesday 25 November at 8pm. He is in Dublin at the invitation of the Royal Horticultural Society of Ireland (RHSI) in an event sponsored by Bord Bia.
He is a gardener with a difference, a trail-blazing innovator who uses his scientific training as a botanist to turn traditional methods of propagation on their heads. His obsession is with taste and nutrition. He’ll be talking about growing and cooking Brandywine tomatoes and Persian shallots among other extraordinary varieties and his recipes are as varied as his ingredients.
He is a Kew-trained botanist, science writer and broadcaster based in London. James is passionate about communicating plant science in accessible ways. His TV work includes the award- winning ‘Great British Garden Revival’ and he is a regular guest on Radio 4’s ‘Gardeners’ Question Time’. He is the author of the internationally best-selling books ‘Grow Your Own Drugs’ ,’Homegrown Revolution’ and ‘Grow for Flavour’.
