March 2017 saw Dublin based Landscape Garden maker and Designer Peter Donegan travel to Salt Lake City, Utah for a myriad of reasons; one of them was to do The Sodshow Garden Podcast, The Live Show.

Fair to suggest Donegan did a little more than that.

Over his nine days there either side of St Patrick’s Day, the Dublin based horticulturist made his US TV debut on ABC4 Utah, the front page of The Salt Lake Tribune, hosted two live shows over 2 nights, marched in their St Patrick’s Day Parade, gave 2 master garden classes, 3 radio interviews, 1 planting ceremony in his honour…. was the guest of honour and then presented a bowl of (real) shamrock to The President of The Hibernian Society of Utah at their annual luncheon- their first time in their history to have it and post a dinner sitting next to Mary Robinson and the Irish Consulate Philip Grant; where all 3 including Peter gave a speech; presented a piece of Blarney Stone to the society.

The reason (?) he traveled for 9 days either side of St Patrick’s Day was entirely down to Melinda Meservy, owner of a boutique garden store called Thyme and Place.

How did it all happen and what actually happened whilst Peter Donegan was there ?

This is just some of the audio, edited down and collated from the before during and after that tells that story.

Live from Salt Lake City Utah, brought to you by Thyme and Place. Peter Donegan was there for a little over one week were 6 guests in total, over 2 nights either side of St Patricks Day 2017 were interviewed in front of a live audience.
