2018 will see designers Tamara Bridge and Kate Savill design their 2nd RHS Chelsea Flower Show garden and on this weeks episode of The Sodshow the duo chat with Peter Donegan about just how that happened, what it means and how they work together.

We go a stage further in chatting the difference between this and the BBC Jo Whiley Scent Garden they created the last time, how the picture formulated very differently all the way back to competing at the RHS Young Designer of The Year competition where they first met.

Garden Podcast: Charles Dowding

On This Weeks Garden Podcast:

Charlsea Dowding’s latest book, Veg Journal – Expert No-Dig Advice, Month by Month  – published by Frances Lincoln, dropped on Peter Donegan‘s desk about 3 or 4 weeks ago, fresh off the printing press.

A fellow member of the Garden Media Guild, on this weeks episode of the garden podcast Peter and Charles chat pretty much everything that is a cliché, a something you don’t know why you garden that way but you do.

We talk Charles latest book, his popularity, where it all began and of horticultural methods – how views and our knowledge of why we should do things a certain way have changed over the decades and the centuries, though not for everyone.
