Don and the Burke’s Backyard team visited film director, Phillip Noyce, at his home near Sydney’s Palm Beach. Phillip talked to Don about the difficulties of gardening so close to the ocean, and how hard it is to select plants that will withstand harsh, sea winds and salt spray.

Don has discussed seaside gardening and cabbage tree palms on previous episodes of Burke’s Backyard.
