336: Michael McGarr, Warnes McGarr

By Peter Donegan,

At RHS Tatton 2017 Warnes McGarr were awarded not just a Gold medal, but also the award for Best Construction in Show and Best Future Spaces garden for their Cactus Direct #2101 garden.  The Sodshow is available every Friday in iTunes, all good podcast stores and The Sodshow website. Together Peter Donegan and Michael talk, music, a love for you do, a journey into horticulture and the passion that fuels it as well as turning what it is you love doing into a business and being the favourite son. They speak about the build at Tatton, how things may appear to the outside, what one really has to do to get there and the realities of really working in an industry were you may be considered unique and the pros and cons of that. If you have a mo, a rate / review in iTunes would be fan-tastic. Much cheers for listening Xx If you have a love of show gardens, are thinking about getting into the business or very simply wanna know what it like to be able to consider walking that walk, you're gonna love this one. Part of the 2017 Tatton garden launch included a much loved set by Wigan based band Deep Shade who play out the interview between Michael and Peter. My thanks also to Carolyn Hughes of Breathe PR for being wonderful and also the ladies and gentlemen of the Royal Horticultural Society Press Office - thank you so much.
