Gardening Australia Winter Special

ABC, 7.30pm

Going to air the day before winter commences, the one ABC show where you're allowed to throw dirt jumps into a seasonal special with Costa Georgiadis beneath an umbrella in Toowoomba, Australia's second largest inland city. He visits a community garden where plants and refugees thrive, before the correspondents cover a walled garden, found materials for climbing frames, and plantings.Gardening Australia broadly has two types of viewers: green thumbs who want expert tips, and black thumbs who want to imagine themselves curating the soil. The fact that both contradictory sides can enjoy the long-running series is testament to its openness and accommodation – people matter, not just plants.
