Gardening Australia episode 34 2019


A Host of Golden Daffodils

Jane visits an urban meadow of spring flowers, where 90,000 bulbs were planted by hand. I’m at the Fitzroy Gardens to discover how the city of Melbourne is creating a flower-filled future. Last year, I met Arron Wood who is chair of the City of Melbourne’s environmental portfolio. Arron and his team had created a living laboratory – a flower meadow, smack-bang in the heart of the city, filled with colour for bees and people to enjoy.

Training a Climber

Millie Ross offers advice on training a climbing plant. How to ensure your climbing plants fill a space rather than just racing skywards and tangling up at the top. The solution starts with planting. The aim is to train the plant to grow horizontally from the beginning, a bit like espaliering a tree.

Miniature Wonderland

Costa visits a perfectly proportioned garden where all the buildings and plants – and even some people – are scaled down to size.

Pretty as a Picture

Sophie shows us how to make a framed ‘picture’ using colourful succulents.

National Memorial Walk

Peter makes an emotional visit to the living memorial at Queensland’s Enoggera Barracks and realises some of those named were his mates. I had an extraordinary, unforgettable and moving experience a few weeks ago. I went to a great garden and met a few old mates. It’s a remarkable, inspiring and moving story about a small group of ex-Australian Infantry Soldiers, who are determined to remember and honour their mates who were killed in action or died in service overseas. They have created a special garden – a National Memorial Walk at the Enoggera Barracks in Brisbane.

An Enjoyable Nightmare

Jerry meets a couple who have produced the entire garden by home-propagating plants.

A Spectacular Show

Josh heads up the highway to enjoy the massed displays of WA’s spring wildflowers.

Pitch Perfect

Jane learns the secrets of lawn care from the caretakers of a very special lawn – the MCG.

A Touch of Green

Tino finds out how scientists are benefiting from their indoor garden in the harsh conditions of Antarctica.
