Gardening guru Eion Scarrow spent his final weeks advising the residents and staff of Apirangi Village in Te Kauwhata on how to deal with the drought conditions that threatened to scuttle the village’s gardens.
It was a fitting role for the man who dug a career from the earth, providing viewers of popular garden show Dig This with all they needed to know about producing the best vegetables and most beautiful flowers.
So when Scarrow died on Anzac Day the gardening world lost one of it’s most hardy soldiers – a man whose weapons of choice were a spade and pitch fork.
Scarrow, 81, presented Dig This from 1972-1986, he also presented gardening programmes on radio for 30 years, wrote columns for several publications and took garden tours to 90 countries as well as writing a total of 24 books.
