Garden Podcast: Lee Connelly

On This Episode of The Garden Podcast:

Lee Connelly first appeared on The Sodshow December 2016. From that interview a rebirth was given to that stage name and, almost 2 years later Peter Donegan and Lee meet up to chat just why, what happened since and where the future lies for horticulture media and what needs to be done to change it, for the future.

There’s obviously a little bit more to it than that.

Garden Podcast: Ascot Garden Show 2018

On this episode of The Garden Podcast:

Early 2018 Stephen Bennett was a guest on The Sodshow. Stephen had, he told Peter Donegan, started a new journey working alongside Royal Ascot. Better famed for their race meetings a new garden show was about to give birth and the voices you hear are just 20 of the growers, nursery’s, designers and trades that were there over that weekend.

If I’m honest, I’ve personally felt the pinch and the knock on effect of 2018’s adverse weather and it’s important, if only to me, that new garden shows and those who smile always as I walk through the gates get a little of the available air time. I’m glad I did and as with all of The Sodshow episodes, this one made me smile.

Over 2 episodes, Maddy talks with Peter Donegan about permaculture. What is it ? How does one do a little, on their balcony, small back garden in their town or in their estate. As important, we chat what one should not do, the magazine she co-founded and edits, the books she has written and published and in true Peter style (?) things go a little off the beaten path and come back again.
