Whether a serious or hobby gardener, Get Growing 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.

Hosted by gardening personality, writer and public speaker Lynda Hallinan, this series of Get Growing follows Lynda, who has moved out of the city, to a 17-hectare lifestyle block at Hunua, just south of Auckland.

Every week, Get Growing visits Lynda’s place as she is hard at work in her new vegetable and flower beds, a pick-your-own berry farm, and an orchard of heritage fruit trees, while she learns to live with 2 dogs, 4 cats, 5 ducks, 12 chooks, 12 sheep, 4 horses and 19 cows.

Lynda is joined by garden designer and DIY extraordinaire Justin Newcombe, as he uses his extensive skills to help two young and busy professionals transform their inner city garden into an attractive, low maintenance and productive outdoor space.

Jo McCarroll and Carly Flynn also contribute to the series, bringing feature gardens and garden features to the screen; meeting some of New Zealand’s most inspirational gardeners to celebrate their stories of vision, endeavour and success; and sharing some design and decoration tips for inside and out.
