Another chance to hear a special edition of Gardeners’ Corner from the Somme where 15 Gardens of Peace (Jardin de la Paix) have been constructed near sites of the Great War. David Maxwell visits the Irish peace garden in Peronne designed by Peter Donegan. He’ll meet David Richardson, a Northern Ireland native, who is now Head of Horticulture at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission to reveal how one of the biggest gardening organisations in the world tends to war graves and memorials at 23,000 locations in 150 countries. He’ll also meet Irish designer Peter Donegan in Peronne and chat to Gardeners’ Corner regular Brendan Little about how gardens help us to remember.
