On This Weeks Garden Podcast:
This is a 2 part episode with and about garden designer Jo Thompson in conversation with Peter Donegan. Part 2 airs 11 October 2018 and will appear here.
The Sodshow is available every Friday in iTunes, all good podcast stores and www.sodshow.com
Should medals or just consistenly classic gardens at RHS Chelsea Flower Show be your thing, Garden Designer Jo Thompson has won and built far more than you could shake a stick at. And when The Debbie Harry poster of the horticulture world isn’t doing that, she is also a member of the RHS Gardens Committee, a Garden Advisor for RHS Rosemoor and a member of the RHS Show Gardens Selection Panel.
That last bit may well be a copy and paste from her website, but it pretty much tells you all you need to know about just how well she is respected in this game.
And, just when you think Jo couldn’t appear to get any more fantastic, the gentleman who first selected her gardens on behalf of The Royal Horticultural Society to be at Chelsea Flower Show – former guest Andrew Fisher Tomlin, who is also a Director of The London College of Garden Design (who I should also add a huge note of thanks for piecing this episode together) asked her to come and teach there.
Of note, Jo Thompson Garden Design was borne in 2009.
