Get your easy gardening project

23 Oct 2014

Easy-to-achieve garden projects are a highlight of the new Choice TV Get Growing with Palmers series. Finished in a variety of Resene products and paints, the DIY projects include great ideas like this week’s easy seed bank (finished in Resene Sonyx 101 in Resene Green Pea).

The third series of this popular programme started last Friday at 7.30pm (Freeview 12/ SKY 026) and is presented by gardening personality, writer and public speaker Lynda Hallinan with help from garden designer and DIY extraordinaire Justin Newcombe. The show brings Kiwi gardens to life with a colourful mix of friendly encouragement, practical advice and how to, along with innovative ideas and fresh inspiration that is right on season.

This new series of Get Growing follows Lynda on her 17-hectare lifestyle block south of Auckland as she works in her new vegetable and flower beds, a pick-your-own berry farm, and an orchard of heritage fruit trees, and while she learns to live with two dogs, four cats, five ducks, 12 chooks, 12 sheep, four horses and 19 cows.

Meanwhile Justin helps two young and busy professionals transform their inner-city garden into an attractive, low maintenance and productive outdoor space.
