Sabrina Hahn is Western Australia's most popular horticulturalist and master gardener, with over 25 years inspiring green (and not so green) thumbs through her shows on ABC Radio and articles in The West Australian Newspaper. Sab believes a garden should be a haven, a refuge, sustainable, manageable, affordable and above all enjoyable for its owners.
Joining Sab is her good mate Jamie Burnett. While he's the first to admit his gardening struggles, he's always having a dig and loves nothing more than a good laugh.
Sabrina's Dirty Deeds will be an informative gardening chat featuring specialist guests who are passionate about making a positive impact for a better world. You will hear from some of Australia's best known horticulturalists, ecologists and innovative gardeners, along with the usual banter and humour you associate with Sabrina. Plus, the team want to hear from you too, so get your questions in to be answered live on the show!
Season 3 | Episode 6: Native plants + kids in the garden with Cat Clowes
This week, it's supposed to be one for the kids but we reckon the adults will love it just as much!. Sab and Jamie have a chat with Cat Clowes about her new book, Platastic! The A to Z of Australian Plants. Cat's done an amazing job of showcasing 26 native plants, with stunning illustrations from Rachel Gyan, helping our kids discover the awesome native plants that exist in the bushlands, parks and backyards all around us. While your little green thumbs will love this book and chat, all of us will learn a little more about the native plants we can look out for or feature in our own gardens. If you want to know more about the book, hit the CSIRO website link here!

Season 3 | Episode 3: Saving the Gelorup Corridor
This week, Sab sits down with her dear friend Steph Crowe to talk about the amazing Gelorup corridor. It's an environmental sanctuary where many species of native flora and fauna thrive (including several endangered species). One of those species is the critically endangered Western Ringtail Possum, which is one step away from extinction. Have a listen about why this is such a special place, and what a committed group of locals are doing to secure its future.
Season 3 | Episode 2: Growing real food for our cats and dogs
We all love our furry friends at home. But what's the best diet for them? Is homemade and home grown better for our cats and dogs than traditional biscuits? This week Sab and Jamie chat with Vet Dr Clare Middle, who explains why a balanced, homemade diet for our pets is best. She also let's you know how you can do it at home, without missing vital food groups and nutrients your pet needs. Dr Clare Middle is the author of several books on the topic, including 'Real Food for Dogs and Cats'. So grab your dog or cat for a cuddle, have a listen and for more info head to Fremantle Press.
Season 3 | Episode 1: We're back baby!
After a couple of months away, Sab and Jamie are back. Hear about Sab's recent wildflower tour of WA, where she started north and worked her way down south. There's plenty of tips to get your garden and backyard right this Spring. And as you'd expect, they both get a little side tracked with Jamie uncovering a story about the time Sab caught a crocodile. That's right, Sab caught a croc and lived to tell the tale. Great to be back. Remember to show some love, share the show on socials and subscribe to never miss an ep!
