Dig This - 1979 Episode

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1979

Beloved host Eion Scarrow dispensed down to earth advice for home gardeners in this long-running gardening series - NZ telly’s first national gardening show. In this episode he guides viewers on how to shift an established tree (a 6-8 week process) before moving on to what to plant at this time of the year (March). The viewers’ letters (“not lettuce”) segment tackles questions about rootstock in grafting rhododendrons, preventing onions and gum trees from rotting, pitfalls in establishing a blueberry crop, and dealing with a plant with (sci-fi) runaway roots.

It'll show the average person who doesn't know anything about gardening that it can be a fun thing for the whole family - every age group.
– Eion Scarrow, Listener April 26, 1975
