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.
