Garden Podcast: Cherry Carmen, RHS Hampton Court


On This Weeks Garden Podcast:

The Sodshow Garden Podcast – every Friday – live 3pm – 4pm in iTunes and all good podcast stores. 

On todays show Peter Donegan chats with Cherry Carmen, designer of the Immerse Garden for Perennial GRBS at Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2016.

From how whilst working in a garden centre Cherry home studied her RHS qualifications, to the setting up her own business, to her first ever show garden design and build under her own name – on one of the wettest June months on record where the design went below ground level – to just how 6 days before build for Hampton Court Palace Flower Show began, Cherrys design was submitted.

Part way through the recording of this interview there was a pause however. It is here that we chat just why Cherry was away on holidays as that design was done. And it is there I discover that Cherry has just completed her second round of chemotherapy.
