On This Episode of the Garden Podcast:

On this weeks garden podcast Peter Donegan chats with Kazuyuki Ishihara at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016, Sean Conville of Two Spots Coffee and the wonderful Avril Hogan of Dingle Gin and Distillery.

That, alone should win award for being the most pretty jam packed and most varied garden podcast in world history ! But wait….. there’s more. Because the very varied, varies a lot more than you might think.


Peter chats with Gold medal Chelsea Flower show winner Kazuyuki Ishihara about how he was formerly a moto cross bike rider with Yamaha, the team of 30 people invvolved in his garden build, just why he half self funded this project himself, designing and building 3- -40 gardens per month and his team of around 100 employees.

Peter talks to Sean from Two Spots, not about coffee as you might expect but about the excess waste that comes off the bean when it is roasted – known as the chaff – and how that is now being used as dressing in ‘flower beds’ and as bedding for hens, before ending up on the compost heap.

And finally Peter also talks to the wonderful Avril Hogan of Dingle Distillery a little about making gin, but also about how beautiful Dingle is, the collecting of the botanicals for the gin making and working with the seasons to produce one of Ireland’s finest refreshments ever.
