Gar­den­ing Aus­tralia

Satur­day, 6.30pm, ABC1 If you en­joyed Tracy Bow­den’s doc­u­men­tary se­ries Aus­tralia’s Re­mote Is­lands, this episode of Gar­den­ing Aus­tralia will ap­peal. It looks at how the iso­la­tion of some of Aus­tralia’s 8000 is­lands cre­ates unique con­di­tions. Yes, from the Ti­wis to Tassie, as hir­sute host Costa Ge­or­giadis ex­plains, our is­land homes are pretty spe­cial. In the Tiwi Is­lands the team gets into a lo­cal art form that in­cor­po­rates plants. In Tas­ma­nia we go with pre­sen­ter Tino Carnevale to visit a gar­den un­der the sea. No sign of an oc­to­pus in charge, or Ringo Starr for that mat­ter, but beau­ti­ful un­der­wa­ter vi­sion nev­er­the­less.
