Episode 32: Gardening Special with Dawn Isaac

Episode 32: Gardening Special with Dawn Isaac

By Ellie Gibson and Helen Thorn

The Scummy Mummies Podcast

Tuesday, 21 October

This episode features Dawn Isaac, award-winning gardener, author and perhaps most excitingly, FRIEND OF MR BLOOM.

It's like Scummy Gardener's Question Time as we find out how to get rid of weeds and what to plant if you're lazy. Dawn chats about her book, 101 Things for Kids to do Outside, and we learn an interesting fact about bunting. No, really.

Then Dawn tells us about her experience of working on one of CBeebies' most popular shows, Mr Bloom's Nursery. We find out what the man himself is really like, and Helen's voice goes all wibbly.

But she recovers enough to present our brand new section, A Walk in the Lady Garden, before we round off with some Scummy Mummy Confessions. This time there's a PRIZE for the best one!

Dawn's book, 101 Things for Kids to do Outside, is out now. You can find her blog at littlegreenfingers.com.

We're on Facebook and Twitter - @scummymummies. Do email your confessions to scummymummiespodcast@gmail.com, and visit scummymummies.com to find previous episodes.
