The Sodcast Guests – Shawna Coronado

sodshow, garden podcast

The Sodshow Garden Podcast – every Friday – in iTunes, all good podcast stores.

Listen to The Sodcast in MP3 – or – as always you can subscribe or/ and listen to the podcast via iTunes. Alternatively you can subscribe to the blog and listen to them right here. Missed Episode 8 of the garden podcast ?

Now into episode 8 of The Sodcast, I thought it a good time to test the water with something a little different.

I bounced it around with others of the podcasting fraternity on maybe bringing some guests in and whilst the response was very much 50:50, there really is only one way to find out…..

Introducing Shawna Coronado

I called Shawna yesterday to see how she was getting on and more importantly to give you a little taste of just what you can expect to hear on Thursdays Sodcast. Take a listen…

Why A Guest and why Shawna…?


I rang Shawna, a person I had interviewed twice before for the blog, admittedly the first time it was audio-less but with whom, both of us will agree, that between us the conversation seems to us, to flow relatively easy.  The video below explains that maybe a little better….

I’m not to sure how well this will work and so and as always I will base that factor upon your responses on the iTunes Sodcast page. Maybe, that’s not the route some would take, but so far so good and 20 ratings and 15 comments later – 90% are 5 star ratings and the comments are very encouraging….

The guests will vary from week to week and will return again, for now and to start with, a nice round of applause for Shawna.

Visit the sodcast podcast page on iTunes – leave a comment and let me know what you think and I’ll talk to you next Thursday 😉

Bloom in US eh?

I received this email on Wednesday. What do you Think…?

Subject: High Quality Pictures of Bloom Show Gardens and Other Images of Irish Garden Design

Dear Designers,

Gary Graham will be making a number of presentations on Bloom at the Philadelphia Flower Show next week.  His primary objective is to encourage Americans with an interest in garden design and/or horticulture to come to Bloom in 2009 or in future years.

In addition to showing the Bloom DVD and some examples of other gardens (open to the public) he will show a number of examples of Bloom gardens.  He also wants to use the opportunity to profile some of the work of top Irish garden designers and create an awareness of the high standard of Irish garden design.  Photos that capture some of the local setting or context would also be of interest to the Americans e.g. country scenes, coastal gardens, cityscapes, gardens that contain plants worthy of merit, gardens that reflect our temperate climate, gardens with a view of this ‘broke but beautiful’ country , etc

If you have a number of photos (max of 6) that might tick the boxes for Gary please send them to me at this e-mail address by12:00 on Friday 27th February and I will pass them on.  Each photo should be accompanied by an extended caption or short description that Gary can use in his presentation.

With thanks in advance,
