Gardening Australia

We've been hoping to get on Gardening Australia for a while now and at last our dream came true. Josh Byrne visited the garden and we'll be on the show next year. We had a great day showing him around and it was good to get a few tips from an expert gardener.


For those who don't know Gardening Australia is a TV show broadcast nationally on ABC1. It has millions of viewers so we're quite chuffed to be on the show. Mostly we spoke about the productive trees, compost, the rain water tank and the blog. Here's the film crew: Brendan (producer), cameraman and sound man.


It felt a bit weird having a film crew over and being interviewed, but hopefully it will come out ok.


Josh seemed impressed with the composting and worm farm, the rain water harvesting, the bananas and fruit fly control on the apple trees. At the end we harvested a load of boysenberries which we'd been saving for the filming so Quin was pretty happy.



We'll let you know when it's broadcast, should be some time in March 2013.
