Peter Donegan chats with garden designer, tv presenter and pretty much one of the finest ladies you may ever have the pleasure to meet, Ann Marie Powell.

The last time Ann Marie was on The Sodshow Garden Podcast was March 2016, just before she went to RHS Chelsea Flower Show to build The RHS garden there; an accolade greater in horticulture I really don't believe exists. And not only that but post the build, she then presented for the BBC and their coverage of RHS Chelsea 2016.

We discuss that, her Gold medal at Hampton, her childhood, her growing up and family life; we also stop along the way to chat what it means to be a little different, unique and maybe a bit special - depending on how you define those words. And in true Sodshow style, the conversation of course strays entirely off course and back again.

This as always when meeting Ann Marie, was again as it always is, an absolute honour. Part 2 of this interview airs a little earlier next week - part as I'm at Chelsea, I've a full time job as Donegan Landscaping and The Sodshow Live Show will be going live from Dublin Castle June Bank Holiday Weekend 2017.

You may post me a pint of guinness. Any thing else -
