Out in the Garden


Out in the Garden is a one hour feature Garden Special which asks: What is it about about gay gardeners that makes them lead the way with cutting-edge garden designs? Could there really be something different about the way they create a garden?

Arborist Simon Miller presents the show which features eye-catching gardens from around New Zealand and the passionate and strong-minded gardeners who created them. Trade secrets are extracted from the gardeners who share their life stories on the way – along with a few laughs.  Simon romps around a couple of major country gardens and checks out three remarkable urban patches as well.
