On This Weeks Garden Podcast:
— Peter Donegan (@DoneganGardens) April 17, 2016
The Sodshow Garden Podcast and radio show airs every Friday live at 3pm on Dublin City FM and is available in iTunes and all good podcast stores just after the same day.
With very special thanks to The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) on this weeks show Peter Donegan chats with Paul Martin.
Paul is due to create his Vestra Wealth sponsored ‘Mindful Living’ show garden at this years RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016. And as one could only expect of Paul, this is set to be another master class in how things should be done on the worlds largest garden design stage.
The RHS describe it as:
A contemporary modern garden owned by a busy city client has been inspired by the love of Far Eastern travel, yoga and a requirement for a calm space in which to relax after a busy day at work.
The design incorporates clean lines and smart details such as Corten walls, subtle grey-splashed limestone, and large sliding shutters that open to reveal the sparkling city views at night.
Large multi-stemmed trees provide dappled shade over a planting palette of soft greens and yellow primulas, which dance besides secret rills of water that escape through blocks of limestone. The planting creates a gentle, calm and relaxing space to unwind and restore one’s life balance.
In this part 1 of 2, we however go a little further back in time, to when Paul and Peter first knew each other and further again to how and just why Paul ended up as the garden show person that he has become today.
Part 2 with Paul follows next Friday.
Our thanks to City North Hotel and the team there for being brilliant.
