The Sodshow meets Paul O’Sullivan and Adam Whitbourn of Blarney Castle and Gardens – Part 1

On This Week’s Show:

peter donegan, adam whitbourn, paul osullivan, blarney castle gardens

Peter Donegan chats to Adam Whitbourn, head gardener at Blarney Castle and Gardens who discusses how he and his team have taken on the massive task of changing the gardens from an accompaniment to the Castle, to being a stand-alone feature for visitors. His work-in-progress list is, as you might guess, long!

In case you’re wondering about the Blarney Stone…. yes it is there, yes you can kiss it. Paul says it was brought back to Blarney after the crusades and put into the castle wall for safekeeping. There are a number of myths and stories about how it arrived there and why it has special properties.

Have you kissed the Blarney Stone?

We reckon Peter may have visited it more than once….

The Sodshow Talks About Mental Health for World Mental Health Awareness Day

On This Weeks Show:

20141009_200903

Brian Greene talks to old friend of the show, Paddy Courtney and also with Karina Buckley about the links between good mental health, gardening, horticulture, and all things outdoors. It’s a great, bright show with a brilliant message. We should do this more often.

Paddy calls it “being grounded” and we think it’s very apt!

Bloom – Five Stands to Visit if You’re Thinking about Studying Horticulture

bloom 2014

It’s that time of year again! The summer has crept up on us and for all the gardeners, the beginning of the summer is aptly marked by Bloom, Ireland’s largest Garden Festival, now in its 8th year. Running on the June bank holiday weekend from Thursday to Monday, it’s an excellent opportunity to see what is happening in the world of horticulture on our little green Island.

It’s also a fantastic opportunity to meet other like minded folk. You might even bump into some of the Sodshow team; please do say hello if you see us, we’re a very approachable bunch!
